  3. NST/BH interviews the pilot https://www.nst.com.my/news/nation/2017/06/253031/i-was-not-panicking-i-was-only-thinking-passengers-safety-pilot-airasia-x Few quotes from the article: he heard a sound which he took to be a collision between two metals Ibrahim’s checks on the engine confirmed his theory, and he and his co-pilot, Vincent Low, shut down the engine before turning right and sending a mayday signal to the air traffic control centre in Perth. “But when we were doing this, there was suddenly a terrible vibration. I and my assistant discussed the matter and looked at the position of the plane while considering our various options. “We decided to reduce our speed to the minimum level allowed to reduce the vibration – but it did not work. The emergency that we were undergoing did not require immediate landing. Based on Airbus’ and AirAsia’s SOP (standard operating procedure), emergency landings are permissible in cases involving fire and smoke. “I had also not landed at Geraldton or Learmonth (because I was not familiar with) their locations or runways, and the plane was heavy. There was also a possibility that more equipment would get damaged in landing,” he added.

  11. Royal Skies rebranding ROYAL Skies, Royal Brunei Airlines (RB) frequent flyer programme, yesterday introduced new benefits and privileges to its members as part of its rebranding efforts. In his speech, deputy chairman of Royal Brunei Airlines Dermot Mannion said that the airline is very grateful for the loyalty and support for its Royal Skies members. “We are also very confident that the rebranded Royal Skies programme will over time surprise and delight our members with a variety of new features,” he said at a gala event held at The Empire Hotel and Country Club yesterday. The rewards and benefits are such as instant flight redemptions, ability to purchase tickets using cash and miles, availability of redemptions at participating Royal Skies partners. Royal Skies also launched new designs for its membership cards in shades of blue, silver and gold to denote membership tiers. In a press statement released by RB, Elite Gold card members will benefit immediately from non-expiring of miles and complimentary Elite Gold status extension. It also said that eligibility to earn miles will shortly be extended to a wider variety of fare categories which will benefit Royal Skies members in all tiers. “A major part of the rebranding process include the transformation of Royal Skies Service Centre located at RB Plaza in the capital,” it said adding that a new elite lounge is undergoing development to cater the needs of members in a very relaxed atmosphere. In an interview with The Brunei Times, Karam Chand, RB’s chief commerce and planning officer said that it is part of the corporate branding initiative to rebrand Royal Skies. “As you know we introduce our new brand couple of years ago and this brand has been progressing… rolled out across our entire products and services,” he said. “(These are) such as change in the aircraft, cabin crews and other customer services areas like our airport and the customer service centre.” Karam also said that the whole idea of the loyalty programme is to engage with loyal frequent customers and create a value for them and keep them engaged with its goods and services. “That is the intention (of the loyalty programme)… The idea is to keep our offering compelling for them so as to make them stay and loyal with us. Up to date, we have over 170 thousand Royal Skies memberships,” he said. The rebranding process also includes the transformation of Royal Skies Service Centre and new heritage uniform collection used by Commercial, Royal Skies and Ground staff. In 2014, the national flag carrier received distinction in the 2014 REBRAND 100 Global Awards, which honour the most successful brand transformations worldwide. The gala event saw the presentation of awards to a number of Royal Skies loyal elite members namely in Best High Flyer Award, Best Elite Newcomer, Best Junior Elite Traveller and Best International High Flyer Award.
