Singapore Airlines A380 plane in emergency landing

 

An Airbus A380 plane operated by Singapore Airlines was forced to make an emergency landing in Azerbaijan due to loss of cabin pressure.
 
The plane was flying from London to Singapore and had 467 passengers and 27 crew members on board.
 
The airline said that oxygen masks were deployed and the aircraft landed "uneventfully" at the Baku airport.
 
It said that none of the passengers or crew was injured and that it was investigating what caused the problem.

Must have been an absolutely terrifying experience for every passenger! But we must praise the captain and his crew for taking immediate action and landing the aircraft safely with all passengers and crew unharmed. Sent from my iPad using Thaivisa Connect Thailand

I wonder how many of the "complaining passengers" are Singaporean - they generally are an uptight bunch.

 

Congrats to the Captain & crew for safe handling of this situation.  Good Work !

I guess I shouldn't be crying over travel plans that will see me miss out on my first TG 380 flight ever out of CDG. Instead I get a new torture seat on the "refurbished"  AB 340

Removed a post using a profanity and the replies to it. Also removed a troll post, and a baiting post and the reply to it.

Well it is unlikely to be a shrinking number of incidents is it?

Not quite Dreamliner status yet?

 

I would have panicked too... of all places to be doing an emergency landing!!!

I wonder what the response would have been from the TVF crowd had it been a TG A380...

My sister was on the flight.

They think there was a leak from one of the doors because it was inspected by a technician before take off.

She said the descent was pretty scary. Baku airport for a day, a few hours in the Hilton and she's now in Singapore waiting for a connection to Sydney.

Not enough info for passengers and sq couldn't provide much inside the airport.

All the fun of the fair.

I'm glad your sister was OK.  Scary when a flight goes wrong I bet.

 

I'm not clear on why this has anything to do with the Dreamliner since it wa an Airbus that failed.

She had a newborn with her. Good pics we got on Facebook. But, because there was no star alliance partner airline in Baku there was little or no assistance on the ground.

The story is that they knew the door had a minor problem but still decided to try and make it.

Silly plan.

You'll find it was mostly Australian airing their unhappiness . . . so why the anti-Singapore rant?  SQ is by far the best airline around . . . and it is to the crew's credit that they actually informed the passengers what was going on

I read that they checked the door, found nothing wrong, and then started the flight where the error showed again

Yes, that's what the news report said:

 

In response to passenger reports that the emergency landing was because of a faulty door, a Singapore Airlines spokesman said that "on the earlier flight into London there was a noise reported from one of the main deck doors".
 
But he added that "the door was inspected by engineers on the ground in London with no findings, and the aircraft was cleared for continued operation".

Hindsight is always 20/20... If the PIC feels that it's kosher to fly given the advice of Engineering then there's no issue.. If Engineering had said there was an issue and the bird shouldn't fly and he still flew then he would be looking for a new job.. I'll take the opinion of a highly qualified aviation professional over an armchair expert every day of the week... Sent from my iPhone using Thaivisa Connect Thailand mobile app

Uh, There are about twice as many incidents on file for the Airbus A380 - 800 as there are for the Dreamliner. It's just that "certain places" get their jollies by reporting on the Dreamliner and ignoring Airbus problems.

Apparently the problem was quite apparent early into the flight, but it got worse until it eventually depressurised.

She will get out of singapore on Friday. She reckons sq did as much as they could. Its just that it was a useless airport.

Without US technology and manufacturing there would be no Airbus.

 

"For the production of its jetliners, Airbus spends 42 percent of its aircraft-related procurement in the U.S. – buying more parts, components, tooling and other material from the United States than any other country. Workers in more than 40 states help build Airbus aircraft, supporting 226,000 high-quality jobs across the U.S. Airbus is the largest export customer for the United States aerospace industry."  Link

I didn't know the French had jetliners in 1774. I thought this was about the 21st century and the Airbus.

That list is rubbish, it includes things like medical emergencies and burst tyres.

 

Probably some Screamliner fan trying to make it look good.
