SQ flight from Adelaide to Singapore makes emergency landing at Bali, Denpesar. Pax reported that 773 had engine failure in one of its engine and it was shut down. Anyone has more news on this?

Sounds like a bad week for SQ...

24/08 An SQ A346 rtb'ed to EWR, engine #1 problems...
24/08 SQ230 772/9V-SRL landed DPS 0735Z due to left engine failed. It was reported to be still in DPS as of yesterday morning.
24or25/08, SQ117 772, delayed in KUL estimate 5hrs due to electrical failure.
24or25/08, SQ163 delayed in CGK estimate 3hrs due to technical issues... A345 reported to be an A345.
26/08 Silk Air MI225 9V-SLB A320 SUB-SIN RTB'ed after a windshield crack on F/O side.

At least it's not running at an equal pace with some Indo airlines (read: Adam Air) on a continuous basis.

It was hilarious what today's Straits Times said about the diversion. Pax treated to buffet and dance! Did the journalist writing this not burst out in hysterical laughter, or did the editor not see it ?!
===========================================

Passengers on flight SQ230, which took off from Adelaide on Thursday afternoon and was scheduled to reach Singapore later that evening, had to make an emergency landing in Bali four hours into the journey.

Those on board the Boeing 777-200 said they heard a loud bang and the aircraft tilted slightly but steadied itself within a few seconds. Thick smoke could be seen billowing from one of its engines, which was then turned off.

Aircraft engines are equipped with an internal extinguisher to put out any engine fires.

When the Adelaide flight landed in Bali, the 292 people on board were taken to a nearby beach resort where they were treated to a buffet dinner and a traditional dance show. They were also given little souvenir items such as photo frames.

About three hours later, they were taken back to the airport to catch another flight to Singapore. They arrived at Changi Airport early Friday morning, after a seven-hour delay.

Now THAT is the way to treat pax in a diversion, instead of just being ignored, given airport food stand coupons. Defenitely excellent public relations for SQ as well as for tourism in Bali.

how many engine shut downs on a 777 fleet the size of SQs in a year will kill your ETOPs capability?
