Lilely as not nothing more dramatic than a faulty sensor giving the crew a indication of low engine oil pressure or oil quantity, shit happens, things go wrong now and again, no big deal

This content belongs in JetBlast

It might be of more interest if it had any newsworthy aviation content

A300Man:

Last time I was in DXB, DNATA sold me a ticket on RJ for a nonexistent seat to AMM. No problem on the first leg to AUH, but onward to AMM I had to ride in the jump seat.

I am NOT making this up.

Well I find it rater newsworthy that Quantas is having such low yields. 258 souls (including crew I guess) on 380... ouch

The Airbus A380 superjumbo had 258 passengers on board and had to land after engine number four suffered an engine oil defect.
The location of the leak is seen as significant because it appears to fall in a cooler and less dangerous part of the engine than an internal oil leak which led to a fire and engine explosion on a Rolls-powered Qantas A380 exactly one year ago.
So Rolls is still having varying degrees of problems with the oiling system.

No trolling here, it happened.

I believe the point was that inflight A380 engine shutdown are so common as not worth mentioning

In the FOHE circuit? Who called the shutoff? The Captain? Or Derby?

Seems probably the first airline to put their fleet of these aircraft soon on the market with their financial/ hardball MGT and union issues. Am I out of line to say that the engine selection for the A380 was not a good pairing, squeeze an orange and get a lemon? Or just simply growing pains for this obese airframe?

So not quite the "Ho-hum, what a fuss about nothing" incident that is then buried here with indecent haste at the behest of the smug and superior...?
Strange how most of them are the first to shout "Wait until we find out the facts..."

The Super Connie did a lot better than the DC-7.

Indefinite Tech delay to B767, BA104 in DXB, looked like an oil leak behind #1 possible pylon hydraulics and guess, a lot of passengers were from the Quantas A380 diversion, still trying to make LHR. BA claim no available alternative flight seats or hotel accommodation due Eid holiday here.
