258 passengers on an A380 SIN LHR

Sounds like a B777 would be a better long haul aircraft for that route.
International travel is always seasonal. Currently, northbound loads are light but the aircraft are chockers southbound so you still have to send the high capacity aircraft up to Europe to accomodate that.

OW's performance doesn't justify her $1.3m salary - how much does the Virgin Australia PR person make?

known unkown , unknown unkown - or just unsure ??

I would really like to know exactly what state this engine was in before this mishap - - as in :-

Was it an Engine that was modified to ensure this kind of Event wouldn't happen - -or was it an engine in "as delivered to Qantas state " - - or what exactly was its state?

After the last big A380 firework off Singapore there was a discussion about whether the Engines were Partially or fully Modified before those Events .

I find it curious that other operators don't seem to have quite the same A380 problems .( Perhaps other Operators are just better at keeping in quiet ) - - -

Incidentally Having flown a couple of Sectors on SIA A380's i find them a really great Aircraft to be a passenger in - - but I would love to know the rollers were less of a problem !

$$$$Qantas

Are you sure the Q PR person is being paid $1.3 mil?

Hardly seems plausible but if that is the case, there's the root cause of the problems with Qantas, everyone is being paid FAR TOO MUCH, from the CEO down.

Anyone heard of the word p r o d u c t i v i t y?

Time for a reality check boy and girls.

But de Ay twee ay tees economics beat de twipple seven hands down. We believe we have chosen de right aircraft for de right routes. It 'twas not my management team who chose not ter buy da twipple seven. But I stand by da decision that was made.

And frankly we are who de manufactures turn ta when developing deir aircraft. Without de input of Qantas management, de Airbus NEO would never have happened.......
Priceless, MACH082, well done. I tink you've nailed it.

From news.fail.au

"It is not clear yet what triggered the engine oil quality defect indicator that forced pilots to shut down the engine, but passengers were not expected to reboard the flight. A spokeswoman for the airline said the timing of the incident was unfortunate"

Damn that bad quality oil!

No big deal. Jet has a minor engine problem and diverts safely. Company makes normal public statement. End of story.................. unless of course, you are an angry and mindless union sheep who can easily draw pathetic links to this very common industry event to the IR dispute, outsourcing, management, politics, peoples salaries, peoples accents etc etc.

Isnt it you QF union twits who are paid a fortune to maintain these engines?? No wonder outsourcing looks attractive.

You guys have lost every last shred of rational thought. Seriously, you can laugh at QF management all day but most of you are a sad and lonely joke as humans!

ah V2 you troll

yes we would love to maintain them engines,but that little pleasure has been sold off to a cheaper mob,as it has been said before if Qantas still had the engine line it would of seen this problem and FIXED it and passed on that info to the rest of the world ....but no you mob of ar$eclowns know better....we will get the monkeys to fix our engines because it cheaper.....and when they fail we will put some girl on the spot who does not even know aviation jargon to make a statement which makes Qantas look like a bunch of fools....so f&ck off V2 and keep your thoughts to your self

You obviously know more about aviation than I do .... I would have thought a brummy donk on a brand new aircraft to be pretty abnormal occurrence ... at least outside Qantas!

Problems with the Oil Quantity Pressure. That is one that keeps me awake at night 'what if we ever get a problem with our Oil Qantity Pressure?"

'monkeys' sounds like a decidedly racist term - you might consider refraining from that type of language.

Remember that similar derrogatory remarks were made of Toyota, Nissan etc in the early days before they transformed the automotive industry. People in glass houses anyone?

Maybe the crew 'tapped' the oil pressure/quantity/ze oil monsuir guage ( like you would ) and being airbus it immediately triggered an ECAM warning!

I think I know why the management at the rat didn't buy the 777.

They'd lose their ETOPS approval after all their engines keep going bang bang

They'd certainly have to spend more keeping them going. Hell they'd probably have to maintain them in house to keep an eye on quality control. Can't have that in Manila!

It's certainly not because they're old technology. I mean it's not like they fly jets which were designed in the 60s is it? Cough 747 cough 737 or the 70s cough 767 cough cough!

Or the fact the a330 was designed before the 777 cough idiot cough...

But hey Qantas management had a major input into the design of the 777, so by default, they are really the ones who are responsible for its success just like the NEO!
