First A380 repair completed in Manila

Quote:
Manila-based aircraft maintenance firm Lufthansa Technik Philippines (LTP) reached a milestone this month after completing the reconfiguration of a Qantas Airbus A380 plane’s passenger cabin—a feat that has been done nowhere else in the world.

In a statement at the weekend, LTP said the project’s completion asserted the company’s position as one of the world’s premier aircraft maintenance, repair and overhaul (MRO) providers.

“Of the 75 A380 aircraft in service all over the world, this is the first aircraft to undergo cabin reconfiguration,” LTP said. The Qantas plane is the second A380 to land on Philippine soil. Currently, there are no commercial passenger flights to the Philippines that use A380 jets.

The Airbus A380, a double-deck, wide-bodied jetliner, is the world’s largest passenger plane. The first A380s went into commercial service in 2007.

For this first reconfiguration, licensed aircraft maintenance engineers and technical representatives from Qantas Airways were on site to work hand in hand with Lufthansa Technik Philippines engineers and mechanics. Likewise, experts from Airbus and suppliers were also present to help.

Apart from the cabin upgrades, LTP said it also completed an upgrade of the A380’s internal wing “rib” structure. “The expertise of LTP’s structures team was a significant factor in the success of the wing-rib modification and in lessening its impact on the turnaround time of the cabin reconfiguration,” the company said.

Eleven more A380s from Qantas were set to arrive and have their cabins reconfigured at LTP’s Manila facility. Service on the arriving planes will be done solely by LTP personnel,who recently completed A380-specific training programs in Frankfurt, Germany.

LTP’s A380 hangar opened earlier this year. The facility cost $30 million to build.

After Qatar now BA talks about pushing back the 1st delivery of the A380.

Quote:
British Airways A380 deliveries to be pushed back

British Airways is in talks with Airbus regarding delivery of its initial A380s, with the first arrival probably being put back until around the third quarter of 2013.

Parent company International Airlines Group's chief, Willie Walsh, says it is "in discussions" with Airbus regarding a delivery date.

Walsh says the deliveries will probably be pushed back, adding that the aircraft are still "likely" to arrive in 2013 but "towards the third quarter".

Airbus is developing a modification for the A380's wing, to resolve the problem, but the first aircraft to have this integrated into the production cycle will not be delivered until 2014.

The wing issue is starting to become a bigger and bigger problem for the A380 program.

I really like this picture. With an Airbus A380 and Schiphol in the background.
It’s nice that Emirates flies with an A380 between Amsterdam and Dubai.

That's a Ram Air Turbine (RAT), it generates electric power using the airstream around the aircraft when the plane is flying.

It's a back-up system for when all the other power sources (The engines and the Auxiliary power unit) fail. When this happens it will power all the vital systems like the flight controls so the pilots can still use all the electronics that are needed to keep the plane flying in such situation.

It's always deployed during the 1st test flights.

Hong Kong Airlines considering cancelling A380 order
AFP
17 August 2012

Hong Kong Airlines said Thursday it was considering cancelling a $3.8 billion order for 10 Airbus A380 superjumbos, which would deal a blow to the under-pressure European airplane maker.

"There are no firm decisions at this point. It will depend on how the business and the external environment evolves in the future," a Hong Kong Airlines spokesman told AFP.

Cancellation of the order would be a blow to Europe's Airbus and its parent company, EADS, following the discovery of cracks in the wings of several of the A380s.

EADS chief executive Tom Enders said last month he expected deliveries of A380s next year to be less than the 30 that the company had been anticipating as a result of airlines putting orders on hold while the crack issue is resolved.

The manufacturer also says it is being hurt by a row between Brussels and Beijing over a European carbon tax.

Airlines flying to, from or within the European Union are required to monitor CO2 emissions for entire journeys and, if necessary, pay for exceeding their carbon allowances.

China has blocked purchases of Airbus long-haul jets by Chinese companies in retaliation to the tax, EADS says.

Hong Kong Airlines, the third biggest carrier in the southern Chinese city based on passenger numbers, has recently cut long-haul flights to Moscow and announced the suspension of all-business class flights to London.

Executives say their strategy is to focus on short-haul regional routes between Hong Kong and other leisure destinations in Asia, including Thailand's Phuket, China's Sanya and Japan's Osaka.

The airline says it intends to replace older Boeing 737s in its fleet with new Airbus A320s as they become available.

The spokesman, who declined to give his name, said Hong Kong Airlines would eventually have an "all Airbus" fleet.

"This will provide cost efficiencies in service and management," he said.

The airline says it is considering either a share listing or a merger with mainland China-based sister carrier Hainan Airlines.

Hong Kong regulators last month ordered the airline to suspend its fleet expansion, limiting the types of aircraft it can operate until it meets safety requirements for large-fleet operators.
