Un Boeing de Qantas fait demi-tour après avoir happé un oiseau.

SYDNEY, 17 nov 2010 (AFP) Un Boeing 747 de Qantas, avec 171 passagers à bord, a du faire demi-tour vers Johannesburg après avoir happé un oiseau, un incident qui a endommagé un de ses moteurs, a annoncé mercredi un porte-parole de la compagnie aérienne australienne.

Pas de chance pour Qantas.
Mais surtout, ce qui me choque, c'est qu'il n'y a que 171 personnes à bord du 747... affraid

Bonjour à tous

A priori retour en ligne ce samedi pour les A380 de qantas


antas A380s Set To Return This Weekend
Posted by Sean.Broderick at 11/22/2010 7:04 PM CST

Qantas will return two of its Airbus A380s to service starting Saturday, the carrier said early Tuesday (Sydney time). Here's an AP dispatch from Sydney.

The announcement comes as Australian regulators said that they have approved a plan submitted by Qantas to return the carrier's six grounded A380s to service. The CASA statement doesn't reveal much, but it underscores that Qantas will "comply with relevant airworthiness directives, as well as service bulletins from Rolls Royce, relating to the Trent 900 engines fitted to the A380 aircraft."

Je rebondis

Limitation "volontaire" de Qantas à des vols vers singapour et l'europe avec escale
Pourtant la route vers Los Angeles est longue, mais pas furieusement longue
Et pas nettement plus courte que l'étape SIA-LHR

http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Non-stop_flight

Elle est donnée pour 6510 Nm pour Sidney et 6880 Nm pour Merlbourne
C'est l'été qui arrive en australie ce qui suppose un décollage chaud depuis SYD, mais froid depuis les US.

Par comparaison, Singapour Londres c'est 5900 Nm donc un peu moins que l'amérique, mais en conditions quasi permanentes chaudes et humides au départ de SIA.

La route Australie cote ouest US est faisable en747-400ER, 773 et 772LR (en tout cas pour Sidney) (et j'imagine en avec qq autres airbus)

Je ne connais pas les vents dominants (qui a la cartes de vents moyens saisonniers ?) que je ne prends donc pas en compte.

Pour Sidney : 6510 Nm, l'A380 peut décoller à pleine charge utile (> 80t donc 50 t pax et 30 t fret) ou à masse réduite en réduisant la charge utile fret...
Pour Melbourne c'est pas loin d'être pareil

Le 747-400ER ne peut pas décoller à pleine charge utile vers ou depuis les US. Il doit sacrifier 7-8 t de charge utile pour SYD-LAX et 12-14 t pour MEL-LAX sur un total de 67 t de charge utile. La config Qantas est 307 places pour le ER (contre 450 pour un A380)

Le 777-300ER ne peut pas non plus décoller à pleine charge utile (il reste 56 t et 50t environ respectivement)

Le 777-200LR n'est pas limité et peut partir avec sa charge utile max de 63t

Un A332 (version 233t) ferai la route avec 20 à 25 t de charge utile

Pour revenir à l'A380 et aux Trent900 il faut rappeler qu'arrive pour BA, et assez vite la version 573t de l'A380-800... Le Trent sera donc encore plus sollicité. A noter aussi une version EA pour Emirates... également à 573t

A suivre

Bonne journée

Qantas a clairement dit que les réacteurs étaient à poussée max au décollage vers LAX quasi-systématiquement.

Par contre sur la route vers LHR avec escale à Singapour, la poussée est moindre, par exemple les A380 de SIA qui font les routes LHR-SIA et SIA-SYD, n'ont pas les Trent 900 à poussée accrue. Qantas est la seule a en avoir besoin pour le moment.

Donc c'est prudent de les remettre sur les lignes où la poussée max n'est pas atteinte.
Pour le moment ça rassure les passagers, ça me paraît être une attitude responsable.

Prudence, oui, ça doit vibrer un peu moins ... mais ce ne sont que 2-3000 lbs, et le moteur est certifié pour beaucoup plus (76500 de mémoire) voire 80 000 lbs pour le futur 389 !

Donc, précautions pour un T900 "Malade" disons, pas encore "Récupéré" et encore fragile oui !
Mais un peu anormal quand même ! le T900, il marche ou pas ... marcher avec des zones d'incertitudes, pour 3% de "P", ne devrait pas exister !

Qantas CEO Joyce's A380 Trip Caps `Textbook' Handling of Engine Explosion
By Robert Fenner - Nov 26, 2010 8:13 AM GMT+0100


Qantas Airways Ltd. Chief Executive Officer Alan Joyce said Qantas “will not fly any individual aircraft unless we are completely sure that it is safe to do so.”

Qantas Airways Ltd. Chief Executive Officer Alan Joyce will be onboard tomorrow as the carrier flies its first Airbus SAS A380 service since a mid-air engine explosion. That commitment helped persuade Mark Ritson to push ahead with a similar trip.

“I couldn’t be more confident,” said Ritson, a University of Melbourne professor, who is flying to London with his wife on Nov. 29. “I think it will be a safer plane than before.”

Joyce’s flight follows the five press briefings and at least six radio and television interviews he has given since grounding his six A380s hours after the Nov. 4 engine blowup. The swift action and public appearances have helped Sydney-based Qantas retain travelers’ confidence, said Robert Heath, who has consulted on crisis management for more than 20 years.

“It is a textbook example of how to handle the situation,” said Heath, an associate professor at the University of South Australia in Adelaide. “When you have a crisis, you have to give a measured response and make sure you are prepared like he was.”

Joyce, 44, who became CEO about two years ago, announced the withdrawal of the superjumbos in a televised press conference after an A380 made an emergency landing in Singapore. The Rolls-Royce Group Plc-powered aircraft touched down with the rear of an engine cover blown away and damage to a wing and its fuselage. No one onboard was hurt.

New A380s

The carrier, which has never had a fatal jet crash, will resume flights with only one of its 450-seat planes. Another will follow next week. Two new A380s will also enter service within the next month. The airline is working with Rolls-Royce on modifying as many as 16 powerplants following inspections prompted by the engine blow-up.

Qantas “will not fly any individual aircraft unless we are completely sure that it is safe to do so,” Joyce said in an e- mail sent to members of the carrier’s roughly 7-million strong frequent flyer program. Joyce, who has also talked about the planes on Youtube, wasn’t available for an interview, spokesman Simon Rushton said.

The carrier has used substitute planes, including Boeing Co. 747s, to maintain services usually flown by the A380s, which represent 17 percent of its international capacity.

Disruption Costs

The disruptions may have cost Qantas A$60 million ($58 million) in lost sales and costs such as chartering planes, most of which it will likely be able to recoup from Rolls-Royce, UBS AG analyst Simon Mitchell said in a Nov. 23 note to clients. Joyce said the same day it was “too early” to say whether the airline will seek compensation from the engine-maker or how much. Rolls-Royce officials in London didn’t respond to calls seeking comment.

Mitchell affirmed a buy rating on Qantas, a recommendation made by 13 of the 14 analysts tracked by Bloomberg. The carrier’s average analyst rating trails only Rio Tinto Group among Australia’s 100 biggest companies by market value.

“Getting his backside on the plane is exactly the right thing” for Joyce to do, said Ritson, a marketing professor who works for clients including LVMH Moet Hennessy Louis Vuitton SA and Adidas AG. “From the start Joyce was on top of it.”

Une partie du rapport de l'ATSB


Pipe fatigue behind Qantas A380 Trent 900 failure

The Australian Transport and Safety Bureau (ATSB) has detailed the reasons behind the uncontained failure of a Rolls-Royce Trent 900 engine, which forced a Qantas Airways Airbus A380 to make an emergency landing in November.

The ATSB has also recommended an additional one-off inspection within two flight cycles, after an examination of the failed engines components at the Rolls-Royce plants in Derby. This applies to all "relevant" variants of the Trent 900 engine.

In the first public details about the likely cause of the 4 November incident, the ATSB says that there was "fatigue cracking" within a stub pipe that feeds oil into the High Pressure (HP)/Intermediate Pressure (IP) bearing structure. This led to an oil leakage, and subsequently an oil fire and the engine failure, it adds.

"While the analysis of the engine failure is ongoing, it has been identified that the leakage of oil into the HP/IP bearing structure buffer space, and a subsequent oil fire within that area, was central to the engine failure and IP turbine disc liberation event," it adds.

"Further examination of the cracked area has identified the axial misalignment of an area of counter-boring within the inner diameter of the stub pipe; the misalignment having produced a localised thinning of the pipe wall on one side. The area of fatigue cracking was associated with the area of pipe wall thinning."

The failure led to the Qantas A380 losing part of its engine cowling and other components, and damaged its wing, shortly after take-off from Singapore. The pilots made an emergency landing at the same airport.

Both Qantas and Singapore Airlines, which also operates A380s powered by the Trent 900 engines, temporarily grounded their aircraft as a result. SIA resumed services soon after the European Aviation Safety Agency (EASA) issued guidelines for additional inspections, and Qantas resumed A380 flights last week.

The ATSB, after discussions with Qantas, Rolls-Royce and the Civil Aviation Safety Authority (CASA), has recommended a more detailed one-off inspection of Trent 900 engines following the latest findings. These should be conducted within two flight cycles, which is above the 20 cycle inspection mandated by EASA after the first incident.

The findings apply to all "relevant" variants of the Trent 900 engine operated worldwide. This means that SIA and Lufthansa, which also operates A380s powered by the engines, will be affected.

"We have begun the inspections and are complying with the recommendations, which are intended to ensure the continued safe operation of the fleet," says SIA.

Qantas, which has returned two A380s to service, says that it will begin the inspections at its maintenance facility in Sydney this afternoon. It does not anticipate any impact on international services at this stage.

"Qantas will determine any further response after it has finalised the inspection regime and consulted with both regulators and the manufacturer," adds the Oneworld carrier.

Exodus of senior staff from Qantas continues
Matt O'Sullivan
December 13, 2010

QANTAS is losing a growing number of highly experienced senior managers who have formed the brains of its international operations for decades.

After more than 42 years in various roles at Qantas, Roger Lindeman's defection to Virgin Blue takes the number of senior managers to leave Australia's largest airline in recent months to at least seven.

Mr Lindeman, who was regarded as Qantas's most experienced executive in airport operations, will become Virgin Blue's head of service experience, which includes oversight of airport lounges. Virgin Blue has been trying to take from Qantas a bigger share of the lucrative corporate travel market.
Advertisement: Story continues below

The turnover in senior managers at Qantas - many of whom have 20 or 30 years of service - is said to have intensified over the past year and is seen as a blow to its key long-haul operations.

Others to depart include Hope Antzoulatos, the head of network for domestic and international operations, who resigned soon after she was reassigned to a project role. Insiders describe the resignation of the 23-year Qantas veteran as significant because of her specialist knowledge of scheduling.

Mr Lindeman's departure also follows the resignation of Peter McLaughlin, most recently general manager of northern California and the western US.

He is a former Qantas general manager of NSW, which is regarded as one of the more crucial management roles.

Judith Crompton, the regional general manager for Britain and Ireland, which included oversight of Qantas's operations at London's Heathrow Airport, also left in September to join Middle Eastern airline Etihad as the head of global accounts sales. She is also a former regional general manager for NSW.

In what is regarded as a retaliatory move, Qantas has poached Virgin Blue's former head of government relations, Tony Wheelens.

He left the airline on Friday to become a government relations manager at Qantas.

Bonjour à tous

Les pb de Qantas (qui passe un sacré mauvais quart d'heure...) font écho aux problèmes sur le Dreamliner...
Que les rumeurs annoncent aux environ de novembre 2011 !

http://blogs.crikey.com.au/planetalking/2010/12/21/on-the-record-boeing-australia-on-787-delays/


Boeing Australia has contradicted expectations of a 787 delay update by Christmas with a statement today in response to a query from Plane Talking.

Our query:

Multiple sources. A delay of 6-8 months for first NH jet with strong risk of additional delays beyond that estimate, worsening for deliveries that were originally scheduled to follow NH in first 24 months. Strong risk of no ETOPS. Lots of concern about this.

Is there an indication as to when Boeing will publicly address the situation, other than the previous guidance of late last month?
Boeing’s response:

We do anticipate an impact to our schedule for certification and first delivery, and expect first delivery will occur after the first quarter. We expect a revised program schedule will be finalized in the coming weeks.

We expect there to be some impact to other deliveries, but there are still too many uncertainties to determine the exact impact on specific customer deliveries. The program will be in a better position to assess the potential impact on specific deliveries once the revised program schedule is established in the coming weeks.
The 787 situation is looking serious when various clues are put together including the delay information provided by multiple sources among Dreamliner customers.

We say ’serious’ because the disclosure coming out of Boeing through reputable reports in US based media conform to the usual damage control strategies of corporate image managers. The bad news, and some potential remedies, are released in stages. The potential remedy that emerged overnight is the official announcement of increased 777 production, which at the right prices and for delivery in the next few years, could be a highly attractive course of action for some 787 customers, and particularly Qantas as mentioned earlier today in Plane Talking.

The current pre-delivery situation at Everett is a grand scale screw up. In other reports Boeing has admitted that some partially completed units will be bypassed as too difficult to fix for the intended delivery sequence by later but less compromised units.

This shambles is but one of the consequences of Boeing losing control over the quality of design and assembly of significant sections of the Dreamliner. It could also be a consequence of a management that does not seem to have valued the in-house skills and experience of Boeing engineers and designers until critically late in the process of bringing the 787s into shape for testing and certification.

The Boeing that has mangled the 787 program is not the Boeing that designed the 777, although it can be argued that Boeing in more recent times was too slow to bring the -300ER and -200LR to market.

Multiple sources have said that the first All Nippon 787 will not be delivered for at least 6-8 months after the promise of a first quarter 2011 delivery, meaning possibly as late as December next year if the current references to a first quarter of 2011 delivery are read as right at the end of that quarter. Eight months from the end of March 2011 is the end of November 2011, and the estimate of up to eight months assumes there are no time consuming consequences from FAA concerns about the causes of the November 9 fire in ZA002 or its remedies.

However, the issue for Qantas customers and shareholders is the continued failure of Boeing to meet a series of promises as to the delivery of the 50 assorted 787s it has on order, originally for deliveries starting in August 2008.

Qantas has a geriatric fleet of Boeing 767s that were supposed to have been replaced by Dreamliners by about now. These now unreliable and costly to maintain jets were to have been initially replaced by the newer Airbus A330s that Qantas transferred to Jetstar, pending their planned return to the parent company after the low cost carrier takes delivery of eight brand new high density format 787-8s to be based in Singapore from June 2012 according to the most recent version of how the Dreamliner was going to transform Qantas beyond recognition. (Which it might, but not as intended.)

Part two of that fleet shuffling strategy is no longer available. Under part one, Jetstar has received a small fleet of young ex-Qantas A330s as well as some of the new ones it had on order, and Qantas is stuck with a collection of un-dead 767s it probably couldn’t pay anyone to take away.

It is considering extending the leases on the 767s, which is ‘unsatisfactory’ or finding more A330s, which are said to be ‘unavailable’.

An unhappy sounding source at Qantas this morning said the airline had been left in the dark by Boeing. Being left in the dark by Rolls-Royce over the issues with its Trent 900 engines on the giant Airbus A380s has already been a major, major problem for Qantas. But to be now also plunged into darkness by Boeing makes the airline sound like it is in a perpetual state of eclipse. And from companies who have taken billions of dollars worth of orders from it.

When Qantas will get illuminated by Rolls-Royce or Boeing is apparently anyone’s guess, although at the moment January 18 has been set as the provisional date for the gradual re-introduction of Rolls-Royce powered A380s on the Australia-Los Angeles runs. Provided Qantas gets enough guarantees from the engine maker that one of them won’t disintegrate somewhere along the 14 hour long remote oceanic flight paths which require it to use those engines at a higher thrust rating than any other airline operating A380s just to get airborne with a decent payload from LAX.

It is easy, probably too easy, to imagine 777-300ERs taking over from 787s at Qantas and Jetstar. The 777s have proven abilities when it comes to the efficient carriage of worthwhile payloads between Singapore and Europe, which is what Jetstar intended to do with its 787-8s, except that perhaps they really won’t be able to do that anyhow given the claims that the super light weight plastic jet has been turned into something rather more ordinary during its development. The 777s are also ideal support airliners for the A380 trunk routes, as Singapore Airlines has already demonstrated to great effect, and good anywhere on the long haul Qantas network except the far southern routes to South Africa and South America.

The Qantas board of directors doesn’t usually meet in January. Perhaps this January it should, and give serious consideration to an exit strategy for the 787s and an entry plan for some 777s.


Finalement Qantas va t'elle plonger pour le 777... même si on peut croire qu'elle aura du mal à les avoir vite...

Bon, a part cela, les qualificatifs employés pour basher Boeing reflètent bien la rogne et les rancunes des Australiens !

Everything about the 787 project embodies the new Boeing, a poorly managed, evasive, and unreliable enterprise incapable of delivering on the patently fictional claims that its has persistently made about the project.

Rien que cela !

Réflexion perso , pour Airbus qui doit lire Avia de temps en temps ...
Free consulting ouarf !

Il est plus que temps que Airbus reprenne en main les com's absentes de RR, concernant les T900 !

Quand est ce que ça va marcher les moteurs Trent 900 sur les A380 pour Qantas ??
Ce sont des produits Airbus, quand même, ne pas l'oublier bon dieu !!

There is no doubt the 777-300ER could be useful in both Qantas and long haul Jetstar service. However Qantas may continue to see this differently, and cling to the hope that somehow the Dreamliner will come good before its aged and inadequate 767s and older 747 aircraft become chronically dysfunctional.

Bonjour !

Qantas dispose maintenant de 5 A380, avec la sortie de révision de celui qui était chez LH Teknik, et celui récemment livré par Airbus!
De quoi passer les fêtes plus confortablement !

Bien il en reste encore un à Toulouse ... c'est pour quand celui là ? Pas cette année ??
Pas de nouvelles de RR, pour la route vers LAX Basketball
Et encore au moins 2 A380 dans la nature et sans moteurs ... dont un bien abimé !

Patience !

Bonjour !

La suite chez ATW ... pour le retour à LAX des A380 !
D'après Geoffrey Thomas, RR pourrait lever les limitations qui empêchent les A380 d'aller à LAX !
Bien, on peut voire le verre à moitié ... ben, comme on veut!
Mais alléger un peu le "Principe de précaution" après un temps de réflexion, pourquoi pas !

1/ Les T900 "C" étant mieux que les A et B, et ça devrait mieux tenir (C'est RR qui décide) !
2/ Ça a bien tenu avant, même si l'EASA à levé un sérieux lièvre en Aout !
3/ QQ centaines de vols avec des moteurs récents ou neufs sont possibles, le temps de solidifier et rigidifier la guimauve côté IPT courant 2011, comme annoncé !
4/ Le soft anti-survitesse est certifié et installé, just in case* !

* Ca n'empêchera pas la turbine IPT de toucher si tout se ballade là dedans, menfin, jusqu'a maintenant, le contrôle des jeux (Butées-Splines etc) semblait suffire, pour pouvoir intervenir à temps !

By Geoffrey Thomas | December 23, 2010

Qantas is believed to be closer to restarting Airbus A380 service on the Los Angeles to Sydney and Melbourne routes after regulators eased engine inspection rules.

According to The Australian, Qantas is in discussions with Rolls-Royce about how it can lift restrictions on Trent 900 engines that prevent the aircraft flying from the US with a full payload.


EASA this week relaxed its requirement of a Trent 900 inspection every 20 flights, designed to detect oil leaks, to an inspection every 200 flights.

EASA ordered the inspections after the Nov. 4 explosion of a Trent 972 engine on a Qantas A380 after take-off from Singapore. The problem has been traced to fatigue cracks in an incorrectly bored stub pipe that feeds oil into the High Pressure and Intermediate Pressure bearing structure (ATW Daily News, Dec. 3).

Qantas said it will have five A380s flying by Christmas Day including its seventh, which was delivered last week. The airline will take delivery of a further two A380s next month.

Et la même , à l'origine !

Re-Bonjour !

Même sujet sur AvWeek !
Lire la fin ... Qantas s'en sort plutôt bien au niveau du trafique assuré au milieu de tant de PB !
Bon, pour ce qui est des coûts et conditions .... Alan Joyce peut avoir un autre avis !

Bonjour Beochien,

Cette réparation devrait facilement dépasser le budget, avec ce type de dommage, ils vont découvrir des choses qu'ils n'avaient pas vu lorsqu'ils vont commencer à démonter l'intérieur de l'aile. À cela, il faut ajouter les mois (voire même un an) d'immobilisation de l'appareil qui n'apportera pas de revenus à Qantas...
