EK A345 Diverts To Jakarta?

Mon Feb 21, 2005 4:54 pm

There may be absolutely no truth to this but I heard that approx 3 weeks ago an EK 345 on route DXB - MEL diverted to Jakarta after a fire above the cockpit. Similar situation to the Swissair disaster.

Now as I said there may be no truth to this or it may already have been discussed on here but either way I would be interested if anyone else has heard anything!

Cheers

I've heard the same story, though, in my one it involved a Boeing 777-300?

Haven't heard of it, though EK did cancel their MEL-CHC flight oneday a few weeks back which is a A345, the AKL flight operated MEL-AKL-CHC-MEL-SIN-DXB that day. So if there was an incident on this particular day it would have been an A345.
