    what could possibly go wrong?

    FAA Denies Boeing Permission To Move Forward In Certifying 777X Due To Serious Flight Test Incident

    "If it's not one Boeing jet malfunctioning, it's another.


    With Boeing facing an uphill climb in restoring the public's confidence in its crash-prone 737MAX, the aerospace giant is facing fresh troubles, this time involving the updated version of the long-haul 777X jet which is facing additional testing because of what U.S. regulators called a serious test-flight incident and multiple other issues with software and inadequate data"

    Citing a serious flight test incident and lack of design maturity, FAA slows Boeing 777X certification | The Seattle Times

    Boeing 737 cargo plane makes emergency water landing off Hawaii

    July 2 (Reuters) - A decades-old Boeing Co (BA.N) 737-200 cargo airplane with two people on board made an emergency nighttime landing in the Pacific Ocean off the coast of Honolulu, Hawaii, early on Friday, the U.S. Federal Aviation Administration said.

    The FAA said both crew members were rescued, citing preliminary information.

    "The pilots had reported engine trouble and were attempting to return to Honolulu when they were forced to land the aircraft in the water," the FAA said in a statement.

    The FAA and National Transportation Safety Board (NTSB) will investigate.

    Transair Flight 810 departed Honolulu at 1:33 a.m. local time bound for Maui's Kahului airport but quickly turned back toward Honolulu, according to aviation data from FlightAware.com.

    Shortly after, the Coast Guard responded to reports of the downed plane south of the island of Oahu with two people on board. Around 2:30 a.m., a Coast Guard helicopter located the debris field and found one of the crew members clinging to the plane's tail. That person was airlifted by helicopter to a hospital.

    The other survivor was spotted on top of some floating packages and was picked up by a Honolulu Fire Department rescue boat for transport to shore, according to a spokesperson from the U.S. Coast Guard.

    Both were being evaluated by medical personnel and their current condition was unknown.

    The crew knew they were in trouble.

    "We've lost number one engine," one of the pilots told Honolulu air traffic control in a recording posted on LiveATC, an audio streaming site that broadcasts air traffic control communications.

    "We are going to need the fire department ... We're going to lose the other engine, too. It's running very hot."

    Boeing said it was closely monitoring the situation and was in contact with the NTSB. The airplane was built by Boeing in 1975, according to FAA records. The plane was first delivered to Pacific Western Airlines and joined Transair's fleet in 2014, according to Flightradar24.com.

    The plane was equipped with Pratt & Whitney (RTX.N) engines. Pratt & Whitney said it was supporting the NTSB's investigation.

    Rhoades Aviation Inc does business as Transair, which is one of Hawaii’s largest air cargo carriers and has been in business since 1982. It has a fleet of five Boeing 737s that fly daily to all major Hawaiian island destinations, according to its website.

    Marsh & McLennan Cos Inc (MMC.N), the insurance broker for Boeing, declined to comment.

    Shares of Boeing were trading slightly lower on Friday afternoon on the New York Stock Exchange.

    This might cheer some up.

    The COVID-19 pandemic has impacted air travel worldwide. This in turn has affected your choices to redeem your mileage. We understand your concerns during this situation. Therefore, THAI has now extended expiring miles in any quarter of 2021 and 2022 to be valid for award redemption until 31 December 2023. This is an automatic process and no further action is required from you.

    TWENTY-EIGHT people on board a passenger plane have been killed after it crashed into a coastal cliff while it was preparing to land in Russia's Far East in poor visibility.

    The An-26 plane with 22 passengers and six crew members, flying from the city of Petropavlovsk-Kamchatsky to the town of Palana on the Okhotsk Sea coast, missed a scheduled communication and disappeared from radar as it was on approach for landing.

    Emergency officials first said they had located the An-26 crash site in the Sea of Okhotsk.

    But it has now has emerged it crashed into a cliff.


    Sources in Kamchakta said they did not expect to find survivors in the An-26 wreckage.

    That must have been some shit is all I can say.

    A British Airways flight was forced to turn around because of a "smelly poo".

    The plane was heading from Heathrow to Dubai on Thursday - a seven-hour flight.

    Abhishek Sachdev, who was on board tweeted: "Insane. Our BA flight to Dubai returned back to Heathrow because of a smelly poo in the toilet."

    He told a newspaper: "The pilot made an announcement requesting senior cabin crew, and we knew something was a bit odd.

    "About 10 minutes later he said 'you may have noticed there's a quite pungent smell coming from one of the toilets'.

    "He said it was liquid faecal excrement. Those are the words he used."

    The plane had been airborne for just 30 minutes when it turned round.

    The next available flight was 15 hours later, so passengers had to be put up in a hotel overnight.

    Speaking to Radio 1's Greg James, Sarah, who works for the airline said: "When you're up at that altitude the cabin has to be pressurised so the problem is that anything like that is actually a health and safety problem because only 50 percent of the air is being recycled and cleaned."

    In a statement, BA said: "A decision was taken to return for the safety and comfort of our customers on board.

    "We're very sorry for the discomfort to our customers.

    "We provided them with hotel accommodation and rescheduled the flight to depart the next day."
