A Norwegian 737 MAX 8 which had to divert to Shiraz is after three weeks still on the tarmac, the problem still hasn't been solved.
- Unscheduled landing due to engine issues at first
- Imposed international restrictions seem to make it impossible for Norwegian to send spare parts to Iran
- Passengers might have to deal with the exclusion of the US visa waiver program
I couldn't find any news about the exact engine issues. Maybe someone knows this better.
What influence does this have on Norwegian's operations I wonder, other than the incurring (capital) costs. Imho, the technicians over there might not be certified to repair the state of the art MAX, would that also impose a problem, or does Norwegian send its own technicians in such case? The article mentions that Norwegian's technicians are dealing with it. Are there any other examples of such a thing happening in any part of the world? How was it solved at these cases?
The thread about the actual diversion itself is here: viewtopic.php?f=3&t=1410665&p=20966059&hilit=norwegian#p20966059
Please stick to the topic and try not to take a too political point of view.
You are the wind beneath my wings.
