STRANDED! NJS NEW B717 Broken Down

Just been informed that the new B717 on its first day of operation has broken down somewhere, with the CEO on board. Not good............

You can always bet your bottom dollar, if anything will go wrong, it will generally be when you have CASA reps and management on board a proving flight !!!!

BLOGG's, You cannot be serious??

What is it with you and that stinking heap of sh!t you get around in? Are you so scared of change that it leads you to constantly bag both Airbus and Boeing. The 717 is 10 times the machine that gutless bucket of sh!TE is!! Maybe if they let you have a go, you just might get it..........welcome to the 21st centuary sunshine!!

You are a dinosaur

Geez you guys are easier to catch than blowies!

LGR, calm down son. I'm sure I'll make the 717 sing 10 times more in tune than you ever could/will/dream of doing! And if you'd like to propose some other aircraft that will keep NJS Charter in the business to which it has become accustomed, as the only serious player in the contract flyin-flyout business, then go right ahead!

Blah blah blah......


As per the QF 744-400 introduction, as per the TN A300 introduction, as per AN 767-200 introduction, as per the........


Need I say more!!!!!!!!!!!!

This is as much a teething problem with this airline as it has been with oh so many before it.......

Giggle, gloat, chuckle, whatever gives you all so much pleasure, but just accept it. This is the start of an introduction of a new aircraft type. It may take 4 weeks, it may take 4 months but eventually the problems will be ironed out and then (perhaps only then) will you accept it into your ranks.

Enjoy the frivolity at your whim......... After that, get a life!!

Cool

ultralights,

a sensor in the bleed air system sent a "0" instead of a "1" to a computer that then prevented the second engine from being started - apparently not previously seen

unfortunately for the rock throwers, the fault was not attributable to either NJS or Jetstar.

pity about the timing as far as the inaugural flight was concerned

but it did fly on the day under the NJS AOC

Hey boocs...while I agree with the general thrust of your post the aircraft has just changed coasts...they're hardly that 'new' anymore!

Talking

Captn Bloggs. You seem quite confident of your operational prowess. At the end of the day does it really matter how good you are?. If you get from a to b safely without making a [email protected] of yourself along the way, does anyone really care.
I feel sorry for the CAPTAINS that have to fly with you. Unless you can land the 717 using the three different techniques favoured on the DC 9, in all conditions, at any port, ( without bosting about it ) im sure the fat lady will "sing" before you.

Struggling with the third landing technique, Douglas.

Doug,
I apologise for the light-hearted banter. I was just having a crack at LGR's light-hearted banter (although his words, apart from spruiking BS - when did I "constantly bag Boeing and Airbus?... seemed to be a tad nasty), that's all.

Now, what are these three techniques you speak of? Surely you are not going to include the technique you used in THAT video?!

Back to the original topic, this must have been very embarassing for QF, considering that over half the pax had to fly back on Skywest's F100 service (a much nicer, comfortable aircraft in any case), and the other half had to wait around for the aircraft to be sent up that the 717 is going to replace.

Lots of red faces!

TE3,

I'll bite!

Skywest's F100 service (a much nicer, comfortable aircraft in any case)
By what benchmarks do you make this claim?
