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.

Incident: Emirates A388 at Hong Kong on Apr 7th 2012, blew tyres on landing

Monday, April 16th, 2012

An Emirates Airlines Airbus A380-800, registration A6-EDQ performing flight EK-384 from Bangkok (Thailand) to Hong Kong (China), landed on Hong Kong’s runway 07L at 17:33L (09:33Z) and vacated the runway via high speed turn off A7 stopping just past the hold short line with two blown right hand main tyres, the aircraft was disabled. The passengers disembarked onto the taxiway via mobile stairs about one hour after landing.

The northern runway 07L/25R was closed for about 4 hours until the aircraft was towed off the taxiway. The runway had been estimated to return to service by 23:30Z (07:30L Apr 8th Hong Kong Time), about 14 hours after landing.

Passengers reported they saw sparks from an engine at the right hand side and noticed a burning smell, the crew quickly announced they had burst tyres.

An observer on the ground reported maintenance staff were replacing a number of tyres.

Sources at Hong Kong Airport report the aircraft suffered an anti-skid failure on landing resulting in brakes blocking and causing two main wheels to be ground down to the axle.

The airline reported the aircraft blew two tyres on landing.

WARNING TRAVELER REVIEWS DANGER ATTENTION AVOID BRITISH AIRWAYS – THERE ARE BETTER AIRLINES

TRAVELER REVIEWS FOR BRITISH AIRWAYS

(source traveler reviews 2012-2013 / external information…)

Awful First Class from LHR to Phoenix: really a basic business class experience on any reasonable airline, just with worse food and dirty. Dirty seats and compartments, a TV screen that would make most Economy travelers unhappy. Had not used BA in years, partly because of my current location (Rio de Janeiro) and partly because there were usually better options, and I am reminded why. The only decent (actually nice) part of the trip was the Concorde Lounge.

My husband and I travelled with this airline from Warsaw to London, from London to Newark and then back. I have to say that I really expected more. The most disappointing matter was cleanliness. I had old food on my table, windows and screens were dirty and hazy. At the end of the trip from Newark do London litter was almost everywhere. Moreover chairs, screens and everything in cabin looked really worn. My TV screen was messed up so I barely could see the Click to continue »
