XL Airways Germany 888T crash - whose fault?

Fri Apr 08, 2011 7:37 am

I am at still at a loss whether the Air New Zealand / XL Airways was in pure legal terms the former or latter despite the crew being NZs.
Was it D-registered or NZ at the time of the crash.
It was re-painted in NZ livery but did the registration change or not.
An NZ forum were at vitriolic sixes and sevens on the issue.

XL Airways Germany 888T crash - whose fault?

I would say whoever was operating it is at fault. You have Boeing continue to do test flights on JA822J, still in American airspace. If it crashed during testing, there's no way JL could be at fault.

Quoting Chamonix (Thread starter):

Flight crew were most definitely XL staff. The acceptance flight was being observed by a NZ Captain with engineers doing things as well but it was (despite what was painted on the tail) still a XL aircraft with german crew at the wheel. Had the acceptance flight been completed successfully it then would have be re-registered to Air NZ (as was the whole point of conducting the acceptance flight).
