I'm sure some engineers at P&W are going to be spending long nights going over the records on both engines and looking for any others that might have had the same/similar construction date, treatment, testing, repair, etc.

Having these failures identified by, and limited to, a single manufacturer and type seems the opposite of unfortunate.
