JQ29 Melbourne-Bangkok cancelled Tech

Jetstar flight grounded: Hundreds of passengers stranded in Melbourne, Bangkok

What happened there? More than a flat tyre by the sound of it?

If the tyre was flat and there was no spare, then the reason for the delay would be a flat tyre. Wouldn't it?

"Hundreds of Jetstar passengers are stuck in both Melbourne and Bangkok after a plane was grounded for engineering checks."
Must be an awfully slow day at The Age??

Please assure me that every time an aircraft goes U/S somewhere we aren't going to see conspiratory stories in the media and PPRuNe?

To be fair, when I'm a passenger "technical reasons" never quite sates my professional curiosity

That's why I generally try to give more details on the PA.

Looks like an a/c out for a few days. A SIN service pushed back almost 24 hours and numerous delayed services to other destinations.

FFS. Starting a thread from a published newspaper story (again) is an embarrassment to the idea of PPRUNE!!

Why not call this the PPRTTNAOTDN!!

(Professional Pilot Response To The News Arcticle Of The day Network.)

Yes I know. It's been awhile since a posted.

You wonder why? I'm seriously looking for relevance.

( except for advertising revenue)

A friend had her Jetstar flight from Melbourne to Hawaii and LA cancelled today, wonder is it's the same plane?

Would be interesting to know the cause of the fault.

Info from a contact - the aircraft in question has a fuel leak from the left hand wing. It requires tank entry to find the source.

Anyone know if Jetstar got the B787 operational again?

Once repaired a leaking petrol tank in an EH Holden using chewing gum, but guess that's not the best option here.

Thanks rmm

So now I know, thank you very much. Given the fright SQ recently had with a fuel leak, it's good they found this one before it became exciting or expensive (relatively...)

And thanks to *Lancer* also: I agree. If they had told the passengers at the time "There appears to be a problem with the fuel system in the left wing and the engineers are working on it" I suspect the incident would never have made it into the Age. Or PPruNe...
