Part 4 only reached a 3-star rating...too bad!
Apart from what amar11372 has said, the quality of discussion in part 4 was also to some extent scattered, primarily due to the timing and much shorter duration than the previous three. BD aviation sector largely remained barren during this time with nothing exciting happened. Hopefully part 5 will be more eventful as BG is going to add some new generation bird in its fleet…:eek:kay:

In part 4 I saw shadow of Mr. NG in some members.:lol:

P.S. Imran Bhai, can we use your name in reference section of our report? And can we use the person's name in whose office we sat? What's his name anyway?

United to spread wings further to int'l routes

United Airways is going to spread its wings further on international routes as it yesterday got government permission to operate flights twice a week on Dhaka-London-Dhaka route, the first by a private airline.

It also got permission to operate flights to Jeddah, Dammam and Riyadh of Saudi Arabia.

The company said the civil aviation ministry gave the permission after reviewing the past track record of the airline in operating flights on international routes.

The United Airways, a venture of the non-resident Bangladeshis mainly living in the UK, is expected to start its operating flights on the Dhaka-London-Dhaka route by the year-end and at least to one destination in Saudi Arabia. It is now operating international flights to Kolkata and Dubai.

On July 23, the United Airways launched a direct flight to Dubai. It is operating a flight from Dhaka to Dubai every Thursday and Sunday with its newly procured 155-seat MD-83 aircraft.

Kuwait Airways makes emergency landing at ZIA

Sun, Aug 2nd, 2009 5:58 pm BdST

Dhaka, August 2 (bdnews24.com)A Kuwait Airways flight with 229 passengers on board made an emergency landing at the Zia International Airport on Sunday immediately after taking off with engine trouble.

The director of the airport, wing commander M Saeedul Hasan Khan, told bdnews24.com that the engine problem might have developed from a collision with a bird. No-one was injured in the incident, though, Khan added.

The plane had left for Kuwait at 7:38am but returned and landed immediately.

Traffic officer of the airline Mahmudul Hassan said, "One engine of the plane developed complications after a bird came in contact with the plane."

The airline sent 30 passengers to London and five to Paris by another plane and kept the rest at hotel. Fifty-five of them will be sent to their middle-east destinations on Sunday night, according to Hassan.

But no decision has been made about the 90 who were to go to New York, the officer added.
I just noted that 40% of that KU flight was bound for JFK. We don't get to know the proportion of connecting passengers but 40% heading for JFK seems a lot to me. Is that normal for KU or was it just a one-off incident?

KU is aggressively promoting their LHR-DAC service and I am pretty sure it's true for their JFK and other destinations; but wonder how EK, QR and GF are responding.

I second that :)
