Singapore Airlines has 11 superjumbos that use Trent 900 engines, and Lufthansa has three.

Singapore Airlines said Thursday it is conducting new checks of its engines. The airline “is complying with the recommendations and carrying out the new inspections, alongside other inspections recommended by Rolls-Royce and included in the directives from the European Aviation Safety Agency,” it said in a statement.
