Scoot Flight Delays & Disruptions
 
Following the incident of TR996/SINTPE 9V-TAU on 24MAR19, the aircraft has been ferried to KUL on 26MAR19 to KUL as TR7008/TPEKUL for retification works by Sepang Engineering (Airbus).

Wow we're doing this already? That's fast I guess.

I wonder why they aren't getting SIAEC to do it - was the bill too high?

flyguy 27th March 2019 12:16 PM

likely its because of lower cost and that they have the capacity to do this at the last minute. Scoot have been sending most of its planes ie ex-Tiger to KL for repainting to Scoot colors

Scoot took over an existing maintenance contract TigerAir signed with Sepang Engineering (Airbus). Hence Scoot’s planes are sent to KUL for maintenance.

Isn't it better from a financial standpoint for Scoot's jets to be handled by SIAEC as the money would be flowing within SIA Group rather than outside ?

Logically, I am guessing they did their numbers, it make sense to see through the contract before changing to SIAEC, than to pay the penalty to break the contract?

Didn't think that they could have signed the contract when the A320s were still under Tiger Airways.

More details have been revealed with regards to the TPE incident. It was mentioned in ST that the pilots switched on a back up power device(assuming it is the APU) to burn off fuel due to them coming close to an overweight landing.

Why were they carrying more fuel than required ? Unexpected tailwinds ?

I was flying to TPE early this month, the weather was quite bad. We need to circle for a while and I still cannot see anything (everything was white) outside the window even at 2000 ft only.

Maybe that day was unexpected quite clear so they have "extra" fuel.

Also I thought TPE flight will continue to Japan right, may be the bring the fuel from SIN?

This is the TPE terminator which is the day flight. There are two night flights that will terminate at NRT and ICN respectively

Isn't there one that lands in CTS as well?

flyguy 28th March 2019 05:17 PM

Its interesting how the A320 can be in "over-weight" position for landing into Taipei as even if were to have a full fuel for the SIN-TPE flight it would be about 6 hours of flying, but after flying 4 hours to TPE, the plane should be able to land without being over-weight even if it had 2 or even 3 hours of fuel left.

Delay to verbal security threats n crews exceeding their flight time limit

Interesting to note that Scoot sent a replacement aircraft and why not just sent a replacement operating crew instead of together with a replacement aircraft - as then the original aircraft would be flown back empty and be a costly way.

TR980|12 Aug SIN-HKG turned back near Zhuhai and landed back in SIN at 20:36. Total flight time 6hr 20 mins for the A320neo 9V-TNA.

flyguy 13th August 2019 11:23 AM

Fortunately its a A320NEO and that it was ferrying supposedly a full fuel load as otherwise it would not be able to fly back to SIN. Am sure they were prepared for a possible diversion as normally they will not be tankering a full fuel load and will refuel when it lands at HKG for the return flight.

yuuka_miya 13th August 2019 08:13 PM

Made the news: https://www.channelnewsasia.com/news...elled-11803022

I'm surprised they chose to turn back though, since they were already enroute they would have been allowed to land.

9VSSA 13th August 2019 08:26 PM

NOTAM for VHHH did not permit WSJC (Singapore) flights to land at HKG during that period.

Someone posted the NOTAM on airliners.net.

Flights that had not yet departed - those already airborne were told to continue with "expected diversion", so I guess this was the Scoot captain's call.

On a side note, today's TR974 is again cancelled. (and SCMP journos fly Scoot? Oof)
