More detailed report at AustrianAviation:

http://www.austrianaviation.net/news...ing-767-von-austrian-airlines.html

ORIGINAL TEXT:


"An Bord einer Boeing 767-300ER von Austrian Airlines ist es am vergangenen Donnerstag nach dem Start in Peking kurz nach Erreichen der Reiseflughöhe zu Rauchentwicklung in der Kabine gekommen. Offenbar war ein Ofen in der Galley defekt. Die Kabinenbesatzung aktivierte nach Unterbrechung der Stromversorgung sicherheitshalber die Feuerlöscher - die Rauchentwicklung hörte damit auf.

Die Maschine mit der Kennung OE-LAZ kehrte daraufhin nach Peking zurück, die Passagiere konnten das Flugzeug an einer Außenposition über Treppen verlassen. Die Fluggäste haben keinen Schaden davongetragen, zwei Flugbegleiter klagten über leichte Beschwerden durch den Rauch.

Der Ofen wurde in Peking aus dem Flugzeug entfernt und wird nun überprüft - die Maschine konnte am Folgetag nach Wien zurückkehren. "

Quick translation of mine:

"On board a Boeing 767-300ER operated by Austrian Airlines, smoke appeared in the cabin shortly after reaching cruise altitude last Thursday. A defective oven in the galley appeared to be the source of the smoke. The cabin crew switched off power and activated the fire extinguishers and the smoking stopped.

The oven was taken off the plane in Beijing and is currently being examined. The aircraft could return to Vienna the following day."

He does but BJS is used to describe airports in the Beijing municipality so PEK and NAY.

Just like NYC refers to New York in general and not LGA and JFK or RIO refers to Rio de Janeiro in general and not GIG or SDU.

Yeah it's time to retire these unsafe Boeings...  

Doesn't sound to nice with thick black smoke, bet the pax were more than a bit anxious. Seems like the response from the crew was quick and professional so no real danger. But better safe than sorry!

I personally don't like such phrases about airplanes, especially related to such a nice machine like 767. I've been working for the Boeing Company for some years, I have crossed the Atlantic 6 times on 767s and I'm completely confident in its perfect safety.
In this specific case the crew handled the situation very correctly and quickly. My respect to them.
By the way, that galley, and specifically, that oven was not made by Boeing itself. It must be a supplied part, so claims will go to the vendor.

It was a joke since last few crashes has been leading to discussions about unsafe Russian aircraft and Airbuses. I thought it was obvious...
Only 767 I've been on was with Air China, and yes it is a very nice aircraft!

Whats more of a concern is Why did the CB not pop out.


Think of the brighter side!

Due to last few crashes my sense of humor has deteriorated a bit...
