They're calling it a major emergency. Any further updates anywhere?

Amazingly, this article appears to report a QF incident accurately and relatively unemotionally http://www.smh.com.au/travel/travel-...rted-fuel-leak-20110413-1dd1f.html

Any idea what the registration was?


It's all about the destination AND the journey.

I'm sure the Aussie media reported this in great, accurate detail, and blamed the Rolls-Royce CFM56 engines

Yes but the author doesn't seem to know the difference between the words effect and affect. I suppose it's mildly comforting to know that it isn't just illiterate Brits who can't use English properly.

Media reporting today that QF are trying to distance themselves from the incident on QF50 ex AKL to SYD yesterday by saying it is actually a JetConnect aircraft even though the aircraft is painted in QF livery, cabin crew fitted out the same etc.

When you search for the flight on www.qantas.com.au it does say that the flight is operated by Jetconnect for Qantas.

Is this a reasonable position given that Jetconnect is fully owned and controlled by QF, fitted out and operated like QF that QF then try to distance themselves from any responsibility.

Completely Unacceptable. It is Qantas NZ by any other name. Crew wear Qantas uniforms, Qantas name badges, passengers have Qantas Boarding Passes, Qantas Baggage Tags, using the Qantas CRS, earn Qantas Frequent Flyer miles.
The aircraft have Qantas sick bags, Qantas cutlery, food is Qantas specification, they have Qantas seats and operate on Qantas mainline aircraft rotation times, are maintained according to Qantas engineering guidelines and are handled by Qantas mainline staff in Auckland who assign them Qantas delay codes..
