  • Jetstar A330 diverts to Adelaide due to engine failure...

    A JETSTAR flight travelling from Bali to Melbourne was forced to make an emergency landing in Adelaide after one of its two engines failed.

    The plane, which was carrying 226 passengers, landed in Adelaide airport just before 7am after the pilots reported they were experiencing engine trouble, the Seven Network reported.The Airbus A330 plane was bought by Qantas in 2008 and transferred into the Jetstar fleet only a few weeks ago.
    Why? Why more bad news for Australia? Anyone have an insider scoop?

    Update - OMG! Major mistake - A3330 should be A330! Typo! Sorry!
    Whatever is necessary, is never unwise.

    Is "lower power" Airbus speak for the motor quit?

    The passenger said it failed. On a "continuum", I guess 0% of 100% is lower.

      Erm - they had an engine problem.

      Hardly earth shattering.

      Engines fail every day around the world. Its the nature of the business.
