World Record ! The new Airbus A350 is due to enter service by the end of the year.

Monday, January 19th, 2015

Airbus has won permission for its twin-engined A350 to fly six hours and 10 minutes on one engine in the event of a breakdown, a key approval that allows its new long-haul jet to fly almost any passenger route.

The European Aviation Safety Agency granted the Airbus jet Extended Operations, known as ETOPS, of “beyond 180 minutes”, but will allow pilots to fly the A350 for up to 370 minutes if one engine shuts down, Airbus said.

ETOPS rules determine the maximum flying time on one engine that jets can stray from the nearest airport at any point during their journey — so they can make it back safely in the event the other engine fails.

That ceiling determines the routes that modern twin-engined jets can take over deserted areas and oceans and is therefore seen as crucial to the sales pitches for such aircraft.

It is equivalent to a maximum diversion distance of 4,630 km, an industry record, Airbus said.

Boeing’s 787 Dreamliner has clearance to operate for only 330 minutes on one engine. The ETOPS rules are subject to separate clearances that must be sought by each airline. Click to continue »

How to write a complaint letter – LIAT the caribbean airlines

Sunday, July 7th, 2013

Good example for a complaint letter

Dear LIAT,

May I say how considerate it is of you to enable your passengers such an in-depth and thorough tour of the Caribbean.

Most other airlines I have traveled on would simply wish to take me from point A to B in rather a hurry. I was intrigued that we were allowed to stop at not a lowly one or two but a magnificent six airports yesterday. And who Click to continue »

SINGAPORE AIRLINES – Enormous Technical Problems Flight Booking Cancellations

Friday, December 14th, 2012

Independent News Agencies/INA: Latest reports show that Singapore Airlines  struggles with long haul flights – Latest Cancellations on Auckland-Singapore route. Difficult economic situation. Huge Losses.

New speculations about Air New Zealand taking over Auckland – Singapore route after being pushed out of Hongkong-London and Auckland -Beijing routes.

Globe-trotters are grumbling ahead of the layovers and longer flying times they will face when Singapore Airlines C6L.SG +0.18% gets rid of the last of the super-long-haul flights—its nonstops connecting Singapore to both New York and Los Angeles.

The direct flights between the wealthy financial hub and the U.S. will be terminated by the end of next year, the airline said Wednesday. CEO Goh Choon Phong said that the carrier “remains very committed to the U.S. market” and would continue its Los Angeles flights through Tokyo and New York flights through Frankfurt.
