    I'm glad to learn that all passengers/crew are safe, and so is the plane. :)

    Yikes. Icing perhaps?

    Not the same engine but Boeing once advised the 787's not to fly near thunderstorms because icing in the engines would cause a loss of thrust.

    Remarkably, the pilots did not declare an emergency at any time during the event. It's speculated that they might have caused the anomaly, and knew how to correct it.
