I have here an article taken from yahoo.fr.
It is relating AOM's recurent delays and flight cancellation due to technical problems on the DC-10's engines most of the time.
The DAC Nord, Direction de l'aviation civile Nord, a branch of the DGAC has sent a letter to AOM on August 11 telling them that they are very unhappy about AOM's safety and made a list of all the flight delays and cancellation due to technical problems. They also mention that all the diverse analysis show important fault in functioning within the airline when exploitation safety is concern !
The DAC Nord also state that such events can cause the change of the airline flying certificate and even its withdrawal causing the grounding of the airline !
When asked, the head office of the DGAC confirmed the letter and also states that such a letter is a very rare case. A technical meeting was done between AOM and the DAC Nord and the airline's planes weren't grounded as the airline promised to check its engine "more often".
AOM owns 11 DC-10 according to the press release with the eldest being from 1975.
AOM acknowledged that its fleet was getting very old.

The url is the following and the article is in french as you can see.

I have heard the same thing on swiss television. Reportedly Swissair is considering to give AOM the two 777s of Air Europe, a Sabena A-340 and maybe a Swissair A-330 to cover the routes until suitable replacements have been found.

I saw pretty much the same on the french station TV5. They asked some employees about the problems and they blamed it on Swissair and the Swiss corporate culture.

The employee said that it neglects the workers, which is especially bad at the time of the merger. I can't really tell you anymore then that.

This is typical french. Blame it on those who hadnt necessarily anything to do with it. If AOM cant get their engines running then its their own fault.

AOM will receive 2 A340-200 stored at Chateauroux from SABENA (initially sold to Khalifa).
The new A340-300 will arrive in november

It surprises me that Swissair, which holds a stake in AOM and is its partner in the Qualiflyer Group, has allowed AOM's safety levels to slip so dramatically. Where were they looking?

Typically French sounds really moronic to me.

Would you be polite Avion, then you should apologize to this forum's audience.

Given France's involvement in Avionics and a/c, expect to meet some French people around!

Its maybe not typical french but typical everywhere. AOM does the maintenance for their Jets so why should Swissair be the bad boy.

Just a slight correction: AOM will be leasing one of those two A340s. As far as I'm aware, there's no news on what will happen with the other one, as of yet.

Best regards,

TriStar.
