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 Does this mean that it has been withdrawn from service?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

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!!

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.....

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
