According to Khaleeja Times . Travelling to Saudi Arabia from Pakistan, a newlywed Pakistani man has gone viral after pulling off a stunt in true Bollywood style.
The Sheikhupura man, on his way to Saudi Arabia to start a job, apparently was missing his newlywed wife so much that he forced the Shaheen Air flight to turn around.

Flights are not known to turn around unless there is a technical difficulty, medical emergency or an unruly passenger on board, but in this case, the flight was dealing with matters of the heart.
So how did the man convince the plane to turn around?
He lied to the airplane staff and crew about his wife passing away.
According to reports, the man – indentified as Irfan Hakim Ali – started throwing tantrums shortly after the plane took off from Lahore. Standing on his seat, he started screaming that his wife had just passed away and he wanted the plane to land again.
Moved by the emotional outburst, the pilot decided to land the airplane.

However, upon inquiry, it was later found that the guy’s wife had not died and instead he was just missing her.
On landing back, the newlywed confessed that he had lied and that he was instead missing his wife and wasn’t yet ready to go to Saudi Arabia, leaving her behind.

Lufthansa resumes its A380 service on Boston, New York Flights

From June 1, Lufthansa will resume its regular flight operations with the popular Airbus A380 after a three-year interruption. Daily flights from Munich to Boston will be operated by LH424.

Just in time for Independence Day, the U.S. national holiday, an A380 with flight number LH410 will take off daily for New York to John F. Kennedy International Airport from July 4, 2023. The airline is thus noticeably expanding its premium offering at its southern hub, especially with additional seats in Business and First Class.

With 509 seats, the A380 has around 80 percent more capacity than the Airbus A340-600 currently flying on the Munich-New York (JFK) route. In total, the A380 offers four classes of travel: 8 seats in First Class, 78 seats in Business Class, 52 seats in Premium Eco and 371 seats in Economy Class. Flights on the largest aircraft in the Lufthansa fleet can be booked from March 23, 2023.

Due to the significant increase in demand for airline tickets and the delayed delivery of ordered aircraft, Lufthansa had decided in 2022 to reactivate the Airbus A380, which is particularly popular with passengers and crews. By the end of 2023, a total of four A380 aircraft will again be deployed from Munich.

Ex-flight attendant claims Delta Airlines uniform gave her cancer

Ex-flight attendant claims Delta Airlines uniform gave her cancer

One former flight attendant says in a new federal lawsuit that Delta Airlines’ allegedly “toxic” uniforms contributed to her developing cancer.

British Airways changes crew uniform for the first time in 20 years(Opens in a new browser tab)

Summer Owens, 43, claims that over the course of more than two years beginning in June 2018, the uniforms she was obliged to wear got her worse and sicker. According to a federal lawsuit filed in Brooklyn on Monday, her symptoms first included skin that was itchy, burning, and swollen, as well as a rash on her bottom, burning eyes, a runny nose, and shortness of breath.

The employee of JFK Airport Owens allegedly began experiencing symptoms over a year later, including “fluid-filled sores on her legs,” “severe weariness,” “numbness in her fingers and toes,” night sweats, fever, migraines, swelling, and difficulties sleeping.

Nevertheless, since the airline introduced new uniforms, flight attendants have been experiencing health problems. And airlines have claimed that their uniforms are secure for years.

The identification and total amount of chemicals found in flight attendants‘ uniforms, as well as the source of their symptoms, are all now being researched by various parties. Employees are probably going to continue to have symptoms until the cause is found or until airlines start paying attention to their complaints and acting fast. And since they have historically had to do so to have their employers change policy, flight attendants are likely to continue filing lawsuits.

A representative for Delta stated, “Although we have not yet received any notice of any legal lawsuit, Delta has taken and continues to take substantial procedures to guarantee employee uniforms are constructed from high-quality material and have been tested to ensure they are safe for our employees to wear. Additionally, Delta offers its employees a very generous leave policy, healthcare benefits, and other services for their well-being.

The “optional” apron from the outfit was removed by the airline in 2020, according to a Delta spokesperson, but the rest of the attire complied with regulations.

FAA Seeks to Lengthen Aircraft ‘Black Box’ Cockpit Recordings

Published

on

How does a Black Box Work ? its importance in an Aircraft.

The FAA has moved closer to mandating that aircraft black boxes record 25 hours of data, as opposed to the current maximum of two hours.

Although it wasn’t enough, this extension of recording time was a positive development. When the NTSB and the FAA began an investigation after an incident in January, the current restrictions on cockpit voice recorders came up. As we witnessed at the time, an American Airlines 777 landed on the incorrect runway at JFK after taxying to it and crossing it, which forced the crew of a leaving Delta Air Lines 737 to abort takeoff with great speed.

The FAA announced on Thursday that it will also create an Aviation Rulemaking Committee to examine ways to make better use of the data collected by aircraft and their systems, including enhanced flight data monitoring. According to a statement from the agency, “We welcome any tools or resources Congress wants to provide to assist us to achieve this quickly.”

The FAA requests a 25-hour recording time for cockpit voice recorders. The adjustment would match the two “black boxes,” which currently collect parameters for 25 hours on flight data recorders (FDRs). With this information, investigators will be able to observe (well, hear) what pilots were doing and identify any distractions that would have prevented them from hearing or understanding an ATC call.

The NTSB has advocated for extending CVRs’ recording times for a number of years. It will be interesting to watch if the FAA’s request for longer-running CVRs is met with any opposition. For instance, on the grounds of privacy, pilots have resisted proposals for cameras in the cockpit.

US considering ban on Chinese airlines using Russian airspace ?

Airlines Avoid flying over these 10 countries.

Chinese airlines that use Russian airspace may face a ban from the Transportation Department of the United States of America. Three Biden administration officials told that the US is considering imposing a ban on Chinese airlines and other rivals who use Russian airspace to bring passengers to the country.

The choice was made in the midst of the ongoing Russia-Ukraine conflict. In an effort to protect the safety of the passengers, a number of Ukrainian bloc allies opted to stop using Russian airspace once the conflict began in February of last year. Over a variety of topics, relations between China and the US are strained. The National Security team and others apparently received a directive on Monday. Chinese enterprises were forced by the ruling to adhere to the same limitations that apply to US airline companies.

The New York Times claims that these limitations have significantly impacted the operations of US airlines. A US official claimed last month that foreign airlines that use Russian airspace on flights to and from the US are acquiring a sizable economic advantage over US carriers in key markets, including China and India. They continued, “This situation is directly to the benefit of foreign airlines and at the price of the United States as a whole, with less links to critical markets, fewer high-paying airline employment, and a dent in the economy overall.”

The US airlines’ lobbying, in the opinion of the industry trade group Airlines for America, is what led to this perception of the US government. According to the trade association, US airlines are losing up to $2 billion in market share to foreign rivals every year as a result of Russia’s liberalization of business travel. In order to prevent foreign airlines flying through Russia from landing at US airports, the group has urged the Biden administration to take action.

While maintaining vacant seats, US airlines must operate long-distance flights. To make the jet light enough to fly without refueling frequently, the seats are kept vacant. As a result, all of these regulations have a significant impact on the airline industry. Even if US airlines wanted to fly over Russian airspace, they couldn’t since Moscow last March barred US airlines from using its airspace in retaliation for Washington’s sanctions. As a result, US airlines’ business has been significantly impacted by the geopolitical dynamics between the US and Russia.

CAAC issues brief statement on China Eastern 737 crash

About a year after China Eastern Airlines (600115.SS) Flight MU5735 crashed, killing all 132 aboard, the country’s aviation regulator said on Monday that investigators were still examining the cause of the accident.

The Civil Aviation Administration of China (CAAC) released remarks stating that the authority “conducted an in-depth inquiry into the accident” with “meticulous and rigorous technical investigative work.” The CAAC also stated that it collaborated with appropriate departments.

The technical investigation team “has conducted detailed examinations of the plane wreckage over the past year to determine the possible working status of key control components of the plane prior to the crash, conducted experiments on more than 100 significant pieces of wreckage, and analyzed the causes of damage,” the CAAC added.

According to Shao Quan, a professor at the Nanjing University of Aeronautics and Astronautics, providing the public with updates on the status of an inquiry at the one-year mark is a standard procedure and necessity in the worldwide civil aviation business.

Also, who explains why the probe is still ongoing, investigations into large aircraft disasters typically take longer than a year due to the technical complications and uncertainties that they must overcome.

Only 25% of civil aviation aircraft accident investigations worldwide over the past 30 years have produced final results in under a year, Shao continued. According to the regulator, the investigation team will continue to carry out cause analysis and experimental verification work and immediately provide an evaluation in accordance with the inquiry’s progress.

Boeing Forecasts Resiliency and Increased Growth for Aircraft Finance

Boeing today released the 2023 Commercial Aircraft Finance Market Outlook (CAFMO) showing another year of recovery and increased demand from aircraft financiers and investors.

Boeing to shift 150 finance and IT jobs to India from the US(Opens in a new browser tab)

The 2023 CAFMO is Boeing’s annual review of aircraft financing trends and assesses near-term market dynamics and financing sources for new commercial airplane deliveries.

An introductory video, presentation and regional financing data is available at www.boeing.com/CAFMO. Select highlights include:

  • In 2022, the majority of Boeing airplanes were funded with cash due to strong operational performance and de-leveraging efforts by customers.
  • While cash funding will continue to play a significant part in delivery financing, the use of capital markets, bank debt and export credit is expected to expand.
  • 2022 capital markets activity was lower compared to its heightened activity recorded in 2021.
  • Export credit agencies supported nearly 5% of Boeing deliveries in 2022.
  • Lessor-supported deliveries will remain stable but may face competition from other financing sources.

The Boeing 2022 Commercial Market Outlook, a separate annual 20-year forecast addressing the market for commercial airplanes and services, reflects that the global market is recovering as Boeing projected in 2020. Demand for domestic air travel has made a strong recovery across a number of regions, with international traffic gaining momentum as restrictions ease, tracking to return to pre-pandemic levels by 2023 to 2024.

Timing and conditions of 737 MAX or other airplane model regulatory approvals, lower-than-planned production rates and/or delivery rates, and increased considerations to customers and suppliers; economic and geopolitical conditions in the United States and globally; general market and industry conditions as they may impact us or our customers; reliance on commercial customers, U.S. government customers and suppliers; the overall health of aircraft production system, as well as the other important factors disclosed previously and from time to time in The Boeing Company’s filings with the Securities and Exchange Commission.
