What is wrong with DL 763s...too many things happening suddenly with them (Smoke in the Cabin the other day....now, engine shutdown!)...I am taking one to BOM next week and I am really worried about this....

Also, how come I never hear about engine shut downs on Airbus fleet (330 and 340)...Boeing/MD fleet issues are all over the A.Net...

BS. This is pure coincidence, just like during the last major winterstorm you had planes sliding over the runway on many occasions. There's nothing to worry about at all.

Because for Airbus planes it's all or nothing, meaning they have to lose all engines to make the news. Just ask Air Transat  Big grin . (Note: This is a joke that is not intended to start a flamewar)

DL 30 came back to JFK yesterday with engine trouble. It went back to SVO an hour or so later. No fuel dumping was required.

Kian,

Take a stats course.

Given the volume of flights that go in and out of JFK, you will find that the problems you mention are statistically insignificant. You are still safer than driving, which would be a challenge all the way to BOM.

I think it shows lack of attention from Delta. Two incidents that close to each other?....scary. I would avoid an airline that has had two emergencies back to back like that.

Are you thick? Do you even know what caused the smoke in the cockpit? Engine shutdowns are also fairly routine too, and mostly used to avoid a possible serious problem (ie rise in oil pressure etc). Its not like an engine just turned off...

Quoting CORULEZ05 (reply 9):


So, you won't fly AA either with all of the MD80 incidents? With all of the flights that go on daily, stuff happens. Every and I repeat every airline have incidents..................what is fortunate that the majority of incidents result in a happy ending. So bottom line is that you need to avoid all of the airlines 'cause stuff happens everyday.

It is also worth mentioning that DL operates the largest fleet of Boeing 767's in the world. So, statistically they might be more likely to experience these sort of problems more frequently than other carriers.

The very reason we have an NTSB is so that FACTS can be learned and relied upon to determine safety, not specualtion!

...which is in desperate need of some interior change. Anyone know when they are getting a facelift?

CORULEZ05: Then I guess you would be avioding just about every airline in the world. Airlines and their planes make emergency landings daily. I know I have done them before.

Windowseat: Sure I can tell you as soon and oil drops below $50 a barrel, People pay real airfare prices, and last but not least DL stops losing billions yearly.... Did I leave anything out?

Well, for starters what did you get in? The oil IS below $50 a barrel, people have started paying 'real' airfare prices again, dunno if you consider real = exhorbitant. Last but not the least, DL is losing $5 million a day; nonetheless they hired one of the best PR firms to get an image makeover; they are rumoured to be spending on new uniforms; and yet they haven't changed what is fundamental to an air travel experience, the interior of the aircraft - where people paying 'real' prices are going to spend many hours sitting in that very interior, probably looking at the seat back in front of them longer than Delta's new uniforms or their ad campaigns.


cheers

I am glad Delta 119 on 02.17.2005 had SNN to get to after the engine shut off...what would have happend if it was in the middle of Atlantic when the engine trouble popped up? I am just one day old on this forum...so, excuse if it is a real basic question....

Kian-
Welcome to the board and expect you will find this a great place to learn!

Do some searches on issues like ETOPS and you will find that there is far more research and planning around aviation than the gernal public and media tend to be aware of-

As a result, small issues appear big, but if you dig in you will find that practically everything the public fears (except airline food Smile is nearly groundless.

If you dig in, you will learn how unlikely it is for a twin turbo commercial on regularly scheduled flight to loose both engines- In fact as aviation freaks we can sum it up with 2 incidents:
Air Canada
Air Tran

Not a single injury in either case-
Cheers

AirTransat (not AirTran) a Canadain charter operator ran out of fuel and dead sticked an A330-300 into the Azores .

The Air Canada incident (767-200) was over land and dead sticked to an old drag racing strip.

In both cases no one was injured. In both case running out of fuel was the culprit.

I beleive the statistic for a modern 2 Engine jet aircraft to expereience a duel engine faliure is 10 -24 or 1 in 1,000,000,000,000,000,000,000,000 flights

And now they may be eliminating the MD88 altogether (based on the other thread)?
