Last week (not sureof date) a Singapore Airlines A310's fuel tank exploded on a flight from Singapore to Bandar Seri Begawan. The incident was, apparently, reported in Singaporean news but has obviously not made international news which is quite interesting considering the severity of the incident if it even happened. SIA now operates 14 A310-300s - down one airframe. Does this mean that it has been withdrawn from service? Anyone heard anymore??

Dont know anything about this incident but want to ask you if SQ operate the A340 to Brunei, heres a picture of it, is it an en route stop to Australia and New Zealand, is there enough traffic between the two states to warrant an A340 service Confused

Hi Airmale
SQ do not use 340s into Brunei.
They have a daily flight to and from Singapore with
a 310.They dont use Brunei as a transit point for
pax flights

dear LXLGU,

I remember there is one particular period of time when SIA does uses an A340 to Brunei.

.......two more SIA planes develop engine problems inflight.

On Monday's edition of The New Paper, it reported.....:

Two Singapore Airlines flights had engine problems.

On January 20, Flight SQ418 from Lahore to Singapore turned back because of a failure in the combine section of the No 4 engine, an SIA spokesmansaid.

On January 19, Flight SQ229 to Adelaide was taken out of service after it landed because there was higher than normal engine oil consumption in the No 4 engine.

Although the report does not stated the aircraft model, I believe it was a B747-400 Megatop plane, wasn't it?

Singapore - Lahore I believe is operated by the Airbus 340. I'll confirm. I know for sure that Singapore - Adelaide is operated by the A340. Oh dear, I think SIA is having the same problem Qantas had after the Bangkok incident and what Ansett is going through now. Oh well..... Stay strong SIA!!

Yes my dera SIA! Stay strong and get "Stronger, than yesterday now it's nothing but" your way!

Well all I can say is that this is one more reason to get rid of those horrid A310s!

What's that? Incident with SQ that is not widely reported anywhere? Now there's a surprise.

CX Flyboy: It's called damage limitation! Which seems to be doing well.

Now let's have a log. It has been brought to my attention and another user on Airliners.net that there have been a string of incidents involving SIA aircraft. Does anyone know what they are?

1 Airbus A310
1 A340
1 Four engined aircraft

Anymore. This is very serious. SIA Engineering better brush up.

KrisworldB777, can you pls confirm your source ? I have not heard anything about it at all.

And if this had indeed happened, it seems unlikely to be unpublicised by other papers in the world (besides those in SIN), given the accident of SQ006.

I have been speaking with someone who stated the Brunei incident last week before returning to Perth. He said that it was on all the news channels. You haven't heard anything? Maybe he is bullshitting? Highly unlikely though. I'll do some investigating.....

hello guys, puhleeeze......

what's the point of SIA telling the whole world about its plane accidents and engine problems?

I mean what for? To bring more shame to SIA?

But if you really want to know if any SIA plane were involved in any kind of mishap, just log on to http://www.channelnewsasia.com/singapore for up-to-date news about Singapore and its planes.

This is just a guess but it may be because of the Chinese New Year happening around that time (around the 24th Jan) They also usually send in A310 to KUL but during this period they increase capacity by flying B747, A340 and B777 into KUL as there are alot of people flying

Yes, Mr spotter from Hong Kong, let's forget about Silk Air #2. Let's just be thankful that the A310 and the pilot concerned are no longer flying with SIA...... we hope!
