Not at all Cough, I'm on exactly the same page. Although a Norwegian flight number, not much point in examining Norwegian SOP's and fuel jettison procedures on the B787 when the incident occurred with a Hi-Fly A340.

I can't see the need to have the thread hijacked with a sermon on corporate responsibility, there's lots of other corners of the internet for the self-righteous.

Well alright then, if you want to play that game, the correct thread title should have been:

"Shitty Rolls Royce engine design and manufacture causes fuel spill at MCO"

Or, "Wright brothers' experiments predictably lead to fuel spill in Orlando."

I'm pretty sure that most here are able to appropriately apportion responsibility for incidents like this, regardless of headline wording.

And, given that the fuel dumping wasn't engine related, who manufactured them is irrelevant.

There won't be a check or even a cheque sent anywhere. There will be a bill or an invoice.
