"As of March 31 2019, QantasLink will resume its international flights between Cairns and Port Moresby: a route that was axed in 2016, leaving Air Nuigini as the only option for the 85-minute hop".

Am told QF will provide two return services a day, wonder what the affect on PX will be. And the 737 weekly POM NRT route to be suspended. What, no crew, shortage of airframes or simply no passengers?

Both of those clubs Darwin and Port Moresby were great places to have a few....or more beverages. That was back in the early 70s but I am sure they continued the tradition. I was a member of the one at Jacksons but never got round to joining in Darwin.

Didn't take too long:

January 11, 2019
THE law firm of Berman O’Connor & Mann filed in the Federated States of Micronesia has filed a civil action against Air Niugini and Does Entities 1-10 at the FSM Supreme Court in Chuuk on behalf of their client Tatiana Patricio.

The civil action arises from injuries Patricio sustained as a result of the crash of Air Niugini Flight 56 on September 28, 2018 in the waters short of the runway at the Chuuk International Airport in Weno.

Does 1-10 entities are insurance companies that provided general liability coverage and excess level liability coverage in policies issued to Air Niugini.

The civil action claims that Air Niugini was negligent in failing to provide safe travel on Air Niugini Flight 56 during its approach and descent to the Chuuk Airport. It alleges that Air Niugini and its pilot and crew failed to properly and reasonably:

Monitor the flight’s position and altitude;

Monitor the aircraft’s descent below the approach profile;

Note the aircraft’s descent below Minimum Descent Altitude;

Confirm a proper read-back and understanding of the landing clearance;

Properly respond to an emergency situation; and

Otherwise utilize reasonable care and circumspection in the interests of air safety

The civil action is asking the court to render judgment including but not limited to pre and post-impact pain and suffering of the plaintiff, property damage prior to death to personal belongings, including, without limitation, luggage, wallets, money, briefcase, coats, toys, passports, clothing, and jewellery, mental anguish and grief of the plaintiff and medical expenses and all other damages to which Plaintiff may be entitled under applicable law. Attempts to obtain comments from Air Niugini last night were unsuccessful.

I m hearing that the Captain has "been retained but lost his command and will revert back to his original position at B767 FO and the FO has also "been retained" and sent away for further training.

As for the L O N G awaited decision hearing 2 Judges have completed their reports but the 3rd has not.

POST COURIER
January 14, 2019


NATIONAL airline Air Niugini says it is already aware of legal action being taken against it by two passengers over by the ill-fated Flight 73 of September 28, 2018, which crashed at Chuuk in the Federated States of Micronesia.

But it has not decided on a specific course of action pending the current investigation being carried out by the Accident Investigation Commission.

“Air Niugini can confirm it has received correspondence for lawyers acting on behalf of two passengers who were on board Flight 73 on September 28, 2018,” the airline said in a short statement.

“The Accident Investigation Commission (AIC) investigation is ongoing therefore the specific claims made in the writ that has been published in the media are yet to be proven.

“Since the incident, Air Niugini has been in contact with all passengers to ensure they are getting the support they need, with the majority of the passengers welcoming this assistance.”

Law firm Berman O’Connor & Mann filed the civic action in the FSM Supreme Court against Air Niugini and Does Entities 1-10.

Does Entities 1-10 are insurance companies that provide general liability coverage and excess level liability coverage in policies issued to Air Niugini.

The civil action claims that Air Niugini was negligent in failing to provide safe travel on Air Niugini Flight 56 during its approach and descent to the Chuuk Airport. It alleged that Air Niugini and its pilot and crew failed to properly and reasonably:

 Monitor the flight’s position and altitude;

 Monitor the aircraft’s descent below the approach profile;

 Note the aircraft’s descent below Minimum Descent Altitude;

 Confirm a proper read-back

and understanding of the landing clearance;

 Properly respond to an emergency situation; and

 Otherwise utilise reasonable care and circumspection in the interests of air safety.



The civil action is asking the court to render judgment including but not limited to pre- and post-impact pain and suffering of the plaintiff, property damage prior to death to personal belongings, including, without limitation, luggage, wallets, money, briefcase, coats, toys, passports, clothing, and jewellery, mental anguish and grief of the plaintiff and medical expenses and all other damages to which Plaintiff may be entitled under applicable law.

I'm hearing there are tears of joy in POM today!

Dear Colleagues,

SUBJECT: DEPARTURE OF MR. TAHAWAR DURRANI

It is with deep regret that I am announcing the departure of Mr. Tahawar Durrani from Air Niugini effective as of 16 January, 2019. Durrani has decided to leave after having served Air Niugini with commitment and loyalty for over thirteen (13) years.

Since Durrani joined Air Niugini he has been a valuable and well respected staff member. The work and contributions, including the extended hours of dedication are greatly honoured. We will miss Durrani’s professionalism, empathy and strength. We respect his decision and wish him every success in his future endeavours.

On behalf of everyone at Air Niugini, we wish Durrani good luck for the future and bid him a happy farewell.

Alan Milne

[ Goodbye King Julien ]

Some would say better late than never. Should have gone years ago and many of the good people would probably still be there.
Ya all take care now.
