CEB-LAX-CEB on PAL


Recommended Posts

When was the last time an ETOPS-rated twinjet ditched? Other than the one that ended up in the Hudson River after injesting a few birds ...One or two have glided into airports.

 

Wouldn't 4 (four) IFSD (in-flight shutdown) of ANA787's during the last 6months make it possibly to add to that list, statistically that is? They are flying with both engines with known technical issues...

 

RR has admitted certain design flaws with the intermediate pressure turbine blades, asking ANA to replace them often but would take 3 years to replace the entire 100+ engines (see elsewhere in the LinC news)...

The wife and I recently returned from a US vacation and thought others might be interested in my thoughts on the flights.     I made the reservations in early February and when it came to seat assig

You'll have to take that up with the FAA & EASA.

 

Even after BA38 had both engines (RR Trent) stop from fuel starvation and it crash landed on final approach to LHR, the 777 kept flying.  They restricted certain flight parameters to avoid the fuel icing issues until the engines were fixed.  I'm sure both agencies as well as Boeing are paying similar attention to 787 issues.

Nothing to do with them... It is my personal choice not to fly with ANA, don't really care if anyone else fly with them...
