Finally some details on that "dead-stick landing"

I was interested in this incident because of the dual flame-out and dead-stick landing. Initially there were a lot of news articles mentioning the engine failures and stating it was a very rare event, but no details. And of course a dead-stick landing of a jet with no injuries, must be an interesting tale but what happened?!

I searched every few days for more details and hit paydirt on Ainonline. According to TMC v-p of operations Chip Schultz, "The right engine never quit, and it was a textbook single-engine landing.

TMC CEO Scott Wise "suggested that perhaps the story originated with a passenger mistaking the sound of the engine powering down for landing as an engine failure."
