Qatar 787 Grounded At LHR

Wed Jan 16, 2013 3:29 pm

A7-BCK is currently sat on a remote T4 stand following the cancellation of the outbound QR076. Presumably this is to do with the ANA and JAL problems.

Has QR cancelled all of their 787 flights? No reports of such in the news.

We will know soon enough, why she is grounded, after a volcanic eruption from AAB

Sadly for the 787, it dosen't rain, it pours

Looks like BCA is still functioning Doha to DXB, so BCK may be another issue?

Hmm. Supposed to be flying on QR's 788 next week. Hopefully they are in service again then, or my 7 hour stopover on the way to CNX will be pointless.

Or an engine failed, or it need a tire, or anything that exceeds the MEL failed.
Let's wait for some information please before we "presume" things.
If QR says "we are grounding our fleet because of JAL/ANA" then we can say that.
Have they?

Perhaps it's grounded due to a worldwide shortage of li-ion batteries!    Sorry, couldn't resist that one.

I have reached out to Qatar who commented with "No Comment." Read about it along with UA and LAN's responses to yesterdays events here-

No. As I wrote in another thread, Qatar had scheduled passenger flights today for three of the five 787s in the fleet. One is evidently grounded in LHR, but the other two aircraft completed their mission.

The two aircraft that were not scheduled for passenger flights remained at base. One was just delivered and isn't ready to enter service yet.

FAA JUST announced all 787s are to be grounded until they sort out fire risk from wiring. Oy vey, not good for Boeing at all.

The FAA only has jurisdiction on US carriers, so technically only the UA 787's are forced grounded.

The Qatar 787 at LHR is AOG for reasons unrelated to the grounding of the JAL and ANA fleet. Its got a problem with its hydraulic system and is overnighting at LHR. Its parked on stand 451.

Are you certain of that? How then did the FAA ground the entire DC-10 fleet in 1979? It's all about airworthiness certificates. If FAA orders the entire fleet grounded by temporarily suspending the airworthiness certificate, then LOT and Qatar must ground, too...

See http://edition.cnn.com/2013/01/16/tr...reamliner-faa/index.html?hpt=hp_t1 . The FAA has recommended other countries follow suit.

Quoting HBGDS (Reply 18):

The FAA only grounded the DC-10s of US-flag carriers. They might also have denied entry into the US of foreign-flagged DC-10s, but they had no authority to deny foreign operators from flying DC-10s outside the US. Foreign civil aviation authorities made their own decision as to whether or not to ground the DC-10.



Quoting HBGDS (Reply 18):

I would expect LOT is operating under the EASA Type Certificate, which has not (as yet) been pulled. I would also expect the Civil Aviation Authority of Qatar holds QR's Operating Certificate for the 787. They may, however, have adopted the FAA TCDS for certification basis, which I would expect means the FAA grounding would be in force with QR on that basis.



Quoting HBGDS (Reply 18):

As I recall, Concorde required both the British and French Civil Aviation Authorities permission to operate. When one of them - in this case, France - revoked that authority, Britain was required to comply.

I think you missed the part where the FAA has specifically recommended (as they cannot mandate) that other countries follow suit vis-a-viz the 787 grounding order.

Still doesn't mean that they have to follow the FAA. It is similar to the USA saying no one can have nukes, yet countries still do.

The statement made was that the FAA pulling the TCDS would mean every other civil aviation would be required to do so. This is not true.

Indeed, most CAAs will follow the FAA's lead, but that is their decision.

In any case it would be pretty wreckless for an airline to continue flying them if the aviation authority of the country that made them considers them unsafe to fly.

With respect, the above is not a good analogy... foreign countries (other than rougue states, none of which fly the 787) WILL follow safety recommendations like these.

Well, this overnight might stretch out a bit longer than expected... By morning, the 787 will likely be grounded in Europe as well.

No idea on what the exact problem is, was just told briefly it was hydraulic. The photo below shows a panel open on the bottom of the wing-fuselage fairing, you may be able to figure it out from that. The panel was not closed up and was left overnight like that.

Please continue all the discussions about 787 grounding in the FAA grounds 787 thread:

FAA Grounds 787 (by brons2 Jan 16 2013 in Civil Aviation)

So we can all discuss this matter in one thread and not 5 different ones.

Thanks.
