  • International airports hit by computer system crash

    MORE than 100 airports around the world have seen flights delayed after a systems crash, with Melbourne, Sydney and Canberra airports also affected.

    PLANE passengers at a more than 100 international airports are suffering major disruptions after computer check-in systems crashed.

    There are reported problems at airports including London’s Gatwick, Charles de Gaulle in Paris, Changi in Singapore, Johannesburg, Zurich, New York, South Korea, South Africa, Melbourne, Sydney and Canberra in Australia, as well as Washington DC’s Reagan Airport.

    Passengers have been enduring long waits at check-in desks for flights on British Airways, Air France, KLM, Qantas, Lufthansa and Southwest airlines.

    In Melbourne, travellers tweeted that there were problems for those with flights booked at Qatar Airways and Qantas.

    Melbourne Airport has tweeted that check-in is now proceeding.

    The problem is affecting Amadeus Altea check-in software, The Telegraph UK reports.

    It is used by 125 airlines, both at airports and online.

    Heathrow Airport has confirmed that airlines at terminals 2, 3 and 4 have been experiencing systems problems.

    “A small number of airlines are currently experiencing intermittent issues with their check-in systems at airports around the world — including at Heathrow,” a spokeswoman said.

    “Passengers will still be able to check-in for their flight, although the process may take slightly longer than usual.

    “We are working closely with our airlines to help resolve the issue as quickly as possible. We apologise for any inconvenience this may cause.”

    • ATS-B releases final report into the disappearance of MH370

      This page shows the executive summary with the full report (440 pages) available as a pdf file for download. Note the investigation status: 'Completed.'

      https://www.atsb.gov.au/publications...r/ae-2014-054/



      It begins:

      On 8 March 2014, a Boeing 777 aircraft operated as Malaysia Airlines flight 370 (MH370) was lost during a flight from Kuala Lumpur in Malaysia to Beijing in the People’s Republic of China carrying 12 crew and 227 passengers. The search for the missing aircraft commenced on 8 March 2014 and continued for 1,046 days until 17 January 2017 when it was suspended in accordance with a decision made by a tripartite of Governments, being Malaysia, Australia and the People’s Republic of China.
      The initial surface search and the subsequent underwater search for the missing aircraft have been the largest searches of their type in aviation history. The 52 days of the surface search involving aircraft and surface vessels covered an area of several million square kilometres. A sub surface search for the aircraft’s underwater locator beacons was also conducted during the surface search.

      Regards,
      Gregg

        • Quite the shame with the US heli downing into a river. N350LH

          As more info comes to light, its possible the fuel cutoff was triggered by a bag. And soft auto-rotate landing possibly not easy to escape for those onboard not familiar.
