Boeing has issued a warning for all airlines operating its 747-8 and Dreamliner models powered by General Electric engines.

It says the engines are prone to icing problems and should not be used in high-level thunderstorms.

The move follows six incidents between April and November when planes suffered a temporary loss of thrust at high altitude.
