I was on DL 1586 ATL-JFK last night, we were taxiing and just before it was our turn, the captain made an announcement saying that an ac had an engine malfunction during TO and had to abort the take off and he said most of us probably had seen the ball of fire coming out of the engine. I was sitting at 1C and this was all happening on the opposite side so I didn't have a good view, and was pissed. What surprised me was the captain referred the plane as a "jumbo jet" so I am thinking either KE or a 747F. At this time I was clearly seeing the emergency vehicle lights on the runway, but couldn't identify the plane as it was really far.
We took off from a different runway and after arriving at JFK, I asked the captain what the plane involved was and he said 767-400 so obviously a DL bird. No clue why he reffered to it as a jumbo jet.
Any DL guys have more insight to this incident, what flight number, where it was headed etc?
Thought I share it with a.net, any further info will be appreciated.

He knows what a jumbo-jet is but some people will see a 757 and call it a jumbo-jet so I guess he meant it in the respoect of large aircraft for us non- a.nutters.


What gets measured gets done.

DL101/17MAR had compressor stalls on takeoff.....Flt crew aborted takeoff and returned to gate.
Maintenance found metal in exhaust and my guess they are doing an engine change since the A/C is still O.T.S.
Delta changed to another B767-400 and they flt left for Buenos Aires just shy of midnite ATL time

Maybe he meant a wide-body and not jumbo. Jumbo's are commonly referred to as 747's and larger.

What time did it happen? I flew through ATL yesterday evening on my way from DAB to RDU. In a sort of related incident, I did see a 767-300 (no idea where it was going) pushback from the gate and then have to be towed back into the gate, the reason unknown. I watched it unfold from the Chillis Too in A-Concourse. This was around 5:30-6:00 PM or so.

Well, other than the A380 "Super Jumbo", and the Miyra, what's bigger?

Thanks for the information, actually the captain stated something along the lines of compressor stall and he was very cool explaining the pax that things like these happen, and no danger etc.
Btw cool that DL had a spare 767-400 at that time, or would have sucked for everyone involved.

My flight number is listed on the original post, if I had to guess it was around 9.30 9.45 pm

Can't stand it when people call something smaller than a 747, A380, 777, or Mriya a jumbo jet.

metal in exhaust

Yeah magic performed by the engine fairy, sneaking in metal plates when maintenance isn't looking.

Compressor stalls damage the engine, sending particles (or in some cases shards) of metal from inside the engine out the back through the exhaust.



If landing is about "kissing" the ground, you just about raped it.

any word about the reg of the affected aircraft:

and re: jumbo-jet: there's only one Jumbo Jet - the 747! The A380 is either a Superjumbo or the "whalejet"  Wink and everything smaller is just a jet, twin, quad, 777, Airbus, Boeing, whatever - but no Jumbo!

It must be a union thing related to pay scale. the bigger plane the higher the pay. It is too bad that Delta and NW can not agree and the pilots will regret it many years down the road.

You have to look at it from a DL pilots perspective. With such a small "big" airplane fleet at DL they tend to consider anything larger than an MD-80 a "jumbo"  Wink

The 747 was nicknamed jumbo jet. It's that simple. Feel free to come up with alternate names for anything else.
Don't be jealous, it was the first pax jet of this size hence deserves it's name. Can we move on?

What, exactly, does this have to do with an engine compressor stall?  Yeah sure

They CAN damage but sometimes it is a Hiccup, does not ALWAYS damage an engine.

Amen MOVE ON is good, this thread was hijacked with the most retarded rambles possible.

No, a wide-body is a wide-body which includes 767,777,A340,A330,A310,A300, and anything that is not a narrow-bodied aircraft. A Jumbo is a Jumbo, like you mentioned the 747 is.

small? 100+ 757s 100+ 767s. The worlds largest fleet of 757s and 767s. I would hardly call it a small fleet of widebodies.  Wink
