On the radio this morning, I heard that another Helios flight had to turn back to Larnaca after a problem occured onboard. This flight was heading to Glasgow, UK. (GLA)

Anyone got more info?

Thanks
Mike

Helios made the landing due to a reported problem of air distribution with one of it's engines.

Great, thanks.

I wonder if this is a Helios problem or Maintenance problem?

Thanks
Mike

It was a Helios maintenance problem.  Wink

We'll probably hear more as to what the problem was within the next 24 hours or so as they figure out what the root of the problem was.

Hi,

Wrong flight. That one is going to Dublin but the one I am talking to is about one heading to GLA this morning or yesterday.

Thanks
Mike

A Helios pilot only has to sneeze these days and the media will say he's got Bird Flu.
Helios are really under the spotlight now and I for one hope they pull through ok.

I agree, I really do like the airline and have flown with them before. Their service is great, and aircraft appear well maintained.

Thanks
Mike

It's too bad Helios have aquired a bad reputation. A relatively small carrier makes on tragic crash and already is is accused of being an airline from hell. My belief is that if you start an airline and have a crash, you are doomed for life. HOwever, if you start up an airline and run it for several years and get a good reputation, a crash will not affect the reputation at all. Take Air France, for example. They had two notable crashes (Concorde, 340 @ YYZ in August), and I dont know anyone that thinks less of them. I really do sympathize for Helios.
Cheers,
