We sent a plane up to KEF from ORD as UAL9935. I guess flight(s) were delayed till today with one going back to ORD as UAL949D and the broken plane going as UAL9937.

Wow. What took so long? Getting a new plane?


Trey



DAL7e7 is wondering... Do pilots take crash courses?

What caused the smoke?

Did UA have any follow-on delays due to aircraft non-availability, or is there a spare 777 or two in the system?

The aircraft is still sitting here in KEF, resting infront of Icelandair Technical Service (ITS) hangar. A maintainance team from UA has arrived and they are currently waiting for spares being shipped in

Smoke in an aircraft is something that should never be taken lightly and should prompt an immediate emergency landing.



Why do Aerospace Engineering students have to turn things in on time?

Seriously, it's quite a stretch. Just because a plane with a new IFE diverts because of smoke in the cockpit doesn't mean that:
-IFE wiring arced;
-Circuit breakers were not tripped;
-Flammable material allowed for the quick propagation of a fire.

If anything, the crash of Swissair 111 led to much stricter standards regarding wiring and the use of flammable materials.



I've got $h*t to do

Sorry... my bad.

Any spare 767s in the system?
