Following the grounding of Ansett's entire fleet of Boeing 767's, the Australian Civil Aviation Safety Authority (CASA) has given the airline 2 weeks to prove that it is worthy of it's operating licence. It is within CASA's authority to withdraw the licence thus grounding Ansett. The 767's were grounded last week following the discovery of cracks on the engine pylons which subsequntly highlighted maintenance discrepancies.

Actually CASA intend to issue a 14 day show cause notice this coming Friday, IF it is not sorted out prior to Friday. Has NOT been issued yet?
