Ansett's Costly Mistake.

CASA (Civil Aviation Safety Authority) have grounded 6 of 9 Ansett Australia 767-200 aircraft, after Ansett failed to perform routine Airworthiness Directives (AD) on their aircraft. To ensure commercial aircraft flying in Australia are kept up to FAA/CASA standards, routine airworthiness directives (AD) are carried out by the airline's to keep CASA happy.

This problem is management related, and the aircraft have no mechanical or structural problems. I think the stories coming from Ansett are a attempt of a cover-up

This has got to tell people about the Ansett maintenance work and management problems, one would think that this couldn’t happen to an airline of this capacity. These AD's will take at least 3 days and will seriously disrupt MEL-SYD schedule.

Qantas will be laughing all the way to the bank. Well, you know what they say, "Fly Qantas the friendly way, or CHANCE IT WITH ANSETT"
