  3. ALL flights in and out of Tullamarine airport have been suspended after an engine problem with a departing Vietnam Airlines flight which caused spotfires on the runway. A spokeswoman for Melbourne airport said the fires stemmed from debris from the plane but dismissed reports on Twitter that the aircraft was on fire. The incident happened around 10.50am with ground staff in the process of clearing debris from the tarmac and towing the aircraft from the runway. She said flights were suspended temporarily and could not confirm when they would resume. “Everyone is fine, one of the departing aircraft had an issue with the engine,” she said. ”It has been disabled and we are focusing on getting operations back up and running. ”The aircraft is not on fire, but the debris has caused some small spotfires.” Passengers took to Twitter to vent their frustration, with one writing: “Stuck on runway at Melbourne airport reportedly after fire on another plane forced it to return. Currently clearing debris.”
  4. RICHARD'S BLOG Virgin launches glass-bottomed plane By Richard Branson - I’m thrilled to announce that Virgin has created another world-first with the introduction of the technology required to produce the world’s first glass-bottomed plane. This technological innovation coincides with the start of Virgin Atlantic Airways’ first ever domestic service to Scotland. In 1984 we started the wonderful airline that is Virgin Atlantic. I am incredibly proud of yet another aviation breakthrough which has been years in the making. I can’t wait to experience the first flight for myself with my family and other natural born explorers. 2012 was a year of celebrating what is brilliant about Great Britain and I’m excited that in 2013 we are continuing this uplifting spirit by developing an experience that will enable Little Red passengers to appreciate the beauty of the British landscape. And with an unrivalled view of Scotland I hope this gives Scottish tourism an even bigger boost. We hope to trial the glass bottom technology with other Virgin airlines in time and have asked other Virgin companies to support this innovative trial and launch our new domestic Scottish route. This really is a team effort from all corners of Virgin. By Richard Branson. Founder of Virgin Group
  5. KOTA KINABALU -- MASwings, the airline servicing Sabah and Sarawak, expects to launch the first phase of its BIMP-EAGA operations into Brunei and Kalimantan, Indonesia, by early near year. Chief executive officer, Datuk Capt Mohd Nawawi Awang said the foray into international destinations, would be another milestone in the airlines' history. It will, he added, pave the way for many more people to travel into Sabah and Sarawak while further intensifying tourist arrivals and business opportunities. "Hopefully, in the next few days, we will be getting the long awaited approval to operate into the BIMP-EAGA. "This will be a new dawn for MASwings, and we hope to launch the first phase of our BIMP-EAGA operations by early next year," Mohd Nawawi said at MASwings 4th Anniversary Dinner, here last night. - Bernama
  6. KUALA LUMPUR -(Dow Jones)- AirAsia Bhd. (5099.KU), Southeast Asia's largest budget airline by fleet size, said Tuesday that it won't proceed with a proposed joint venture with VietJet Aviation JSC. Regulatory approval for VietJet to use AirAsia's brand across its commercial operations remains outstanding, AirAsia said in a stock exchange filing. As that condition is fundamental to the venture's success, the company has "decided to allow the joint venture to lapse with immediate effect." In February 2010, AirAsia said it had signed agreements with Sovico Holdings and a Vietnamese individual to buy 30% in VietJet and establish a low-cost airline in Vietnam based on its existing business.
  7. This 'bunch' of fighters always cause my flight with an unnecessary delay to take off from runaway. * Almost every Monday, I 'fly off' from Hanoi and 'touch down' Hanoi on every Friday afternoon or Saturday.

  10. Hi Reyneo, The fare around VND900k+ is considered promotion fare. It is not possible to be VND600k or below. The airport tax, fuel surcharge, VAT sums up already nearly VND400k. Usually, I paid around VND1.3mil + one way for VN flight. I seldom take Jetstar due to not reliable on timing unless first flight of the day. Sometimes, it even delay more than 3 hours. Worse case is flight cancel without compensation. Hi Kenneth, You paid USD100 for one way is the highest fare for HAN-SGN. Actually, you can purchase the ticket on the spot at the airport. For HAN-SGN v.v, it has many daily flights almost 1 hour 1 flight. HAN is Capital city and SGN is business hub. Therefore, this is the busiest route among domestic destination.
  11. Those places airport authority doesn't give AK a choice of it. Either leave it or take it! I also hate those 'customer' so KIASU and AJI -AJO a lot! Without AK, those airport still can survive!
  12. Tuesday, November 30, 2010 A Cathay Pacific flight made an emergency landing in Kazakhstan, central Asia, after a cabin pressurization fault. The Boeing 747 aircraft - with 306 passengers and 20 crew on board - landed safely at Karaganda airport. Flight CX270 was en route to Hong Kong from Amsterdam when it experienced "a fault in the cabin pressurization system" six hours into the flight on Sunday, the airline said yesterday. Oxygen masks were deployed and the flight was diverted to the nearest airport, which was Karaganda. The aircraft landed safely without incident some two hours after the problem was detected. RTHK said reports from Kazakhstan indicated the cabin of the aircraft lost pressure. The Civil Aviation Department was informed of the incident and the airline is now investigating the cause. A Cathay engineer was dispatched on a special flight to fix the technical problem. "Once done, the aircraft will be ferried back to Hong Kong," a spokesman said. The special flight will also bring back the passengers and crew and is expected to arrive in Hong Kong this morning. Cathay said the passengers spent four hours on the aircraft before they could deplane, due to delays in obtaining visa exemptions from the local Kazakhstan authorities.
