General Electric and Boeing Co said on Wednesday they had alerted airlines about potential problems with some engines on Boeing's long-range 777 jumbo jet.

Boeing said the companies are recommending inspections of engines on 25 jets for a "manufacturing non-conformity" that occurred in some GE90-115B engines made during a recent period of six months.
