Another Qantas engine shutdown Merged

Diverting to Dubai now.

AJ crapping on in the senate enquiry about how Qantas always takes a conservative approach to safety ie the a twee ay tees and the volcanic ash etc etc.

Yet they are flying around RB211s with known problems and a known fix, yet have not fixed them and continue to fly passengers around in these aircraft.

I tink he is full of shite....

Just found out its an A380

More QF engine woes.

QF31 operated by A380 VH-OQC just landed at Dubai with reported engine trouble.

Heard from a client who was on board that the crew advised the SLF that is was an oil leak.

No more to hand other than major confusion and passengers not getting much info.

To be expected as it is not a QF port and currently just past 0500.

Best all

OWs media conference was an embarrassment.

The amount of times she said obviously was a joke.

Deboarded? You mean disembarked?

OQA a code for aircraft? You mean registration

This nothing to do with QF32 last year? How can you draw that parallel? It has not even been investigated.

I believe that an oil problem was the cause of QF32 last year which caused the uncontained failure. This was an oil pressure issue today as well. Hmmmm

All airlines not just Qantas have these issues from time to time? Didn't I read that Qantas is suffering from 4 x the industry average engine shutdown in flight of late? Hmmmm

OW sounded like a news anchor reading the evening news. It was full of cliches and well worn statements that a brought out every time something like this happens.

Great timing

Well done to the crew.

about 90 minutes after takeoff
If so, why not turn back?

Although other reports are suggesting 4 hours, which might make more sense re: diverting to Dubai.

"Dead man walking on the Green mile!!"

One year to the DAY after the QF32 incident.

Not a major incident..... but watch the media frenzy as it happened precisely as our esteemed CEO was fronting a Senate enquiry claiming how his policies were going to save Qantas...

Epitaph for a CEO career.... "Karma is a bitch!"

A little desert rat whispered that most QF engines were constantly operated at Max Flat Rated Take Off thrust because the pilots wanted almost all takeoffs that way for " safety reasons ". Flame away!

Thumbs down

Kalistan, whoever told you that probably has a bridge they'd like to sell to you as well. Simply not true. :roll eyes:

That said, given the hauls that QF aircraft do (SYD-LAX-SYD, MEL-LAX-MEL, SYD-JNB-SYD, etc) then you'll find our fleet probably does more max takeoff thrust takeoffs than other airlines fleets but only because the performance is required.

258 passengers on an A380 SIN LHR
Sounds like a B777 would be a better long haul aircraft choice for that route.

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.......



Perhaps Rolls Royce listened to management in their designs of late

OMG! Qantas has become such an embarrassment. None of the people that front the media do anything to inspire confidence in the brand or its future.

Notice the ABC desk jockey said the OW conference was outside parliament house. Wonder if she has had a catch up with her former employer Joe Hockey while there!!!!
