Captain & F/O doing a good job fronting the pax here (video):

Cathay Pacific Airbus A330 engine fire | Turns back to Singapore

Note they are displaying "leadership" as required by OPS A 11.4

Also note they are speaking to the pax not the media.

Thumbs up Nice job.

No names no pack drill, but well done Brad ;-)

All at 02:00 local time, kinda makes you wonder who rosters these trips at such times eh!

Nice job by all the crew,

Sheko.

@Dilligaffer, looks like my cover is blown:
It's ok to look back and smile that thankfully I am not there in the thick of it, its called schadenfreude.

Let me repeat exactly what MaxReheat stated but directed towards Neptunus Rex

What a pathetic, naive and uninformed statement!

Sounds like you need to get out more.

All recent problems with the A330 and the 380 at CX and QF have involved Australian pilots. Survival record 100%.

Not so with other nationalities on the Bus.

So what is your point?

VR,

According to my girlfriend I seem to be going out too much actually, that is unless you think you know better than her from a single post! Would love to see your deduction skills

I am not trying to start a war between nationalities, but what moron comes on an aviation forum and insinuate that one group of nationality is better equipped at dealing with emergencies than another. In fact your comment of
Not so with other nationalities on the Bus.
is even more pathetic and arrogant than the first.

Your attitude is a small insight as to why some of the most hated checkers just happen to be Australians.

I assume you mean "incidents" rather than "problems" and do you mean "both" newsworthy incidents or are there others that you're referring to?

I would have thought that all problems (sic) at QF involve Australian pilots or do they hire other nationalities? Just curious.

Well done to the crew, whatever nationality they may be.

STP

Holy F*%@rk!!!!

Not....."Yet another completely buggered, overworked AIRBUS PILOT at the wrong side of the body clock doing what he was trained to do...."

no no no....its " Yet another AUSSIE pilot steps up to the crease"

All I can say is THANK GOD for the compassionate,empathetic, well meaning, in-fallable....and lets not forget HUMBLE AUSSIE Pilots for stepping up to the crease, cause otherwise we would all be BUGGERED!!!!

Yet more ammo for the yobbo F/O, busily pi##ing off the cabin crew whilst he is cocking up an approach and landing....to his HOME BASE!!!!

BKK controller.... "Quantas 1 you are cleared to land.....I mean takeoff.....I mean cleared to land....I mean takeoff....."

Golfers....." Looks like a rather large group would like to play thru....."

Nuff Said!!!!

Ps. Well done to the completely buggered AIRBUS Pilots last night!

I'm sure that the ground staff will be effusively praised in the various CX mouthpieces for their handling of the situation...
