Default TR24 returned to airport

It would appear that TR24 was diverted today back to SIN. Operating a/c was 9V-OFD. This aircraft has had many many delays in the last few days. Engine problems? :shrug:

Does anyone know if Singapore's 78Xs' Trent 1000 3 would be affected?

Sseems like Scoot's previous 3 long delays at Athens, Taipei and Bangkok are all with tech issues wth their 787s - but none are related to the RR engines, including the MEL turn back yesterday. Not sure why Scoot's 787s are having quite a higher than usual tech issues.
On the RR engines issue, these are known and are scheduled for maintenance.

Flight TR19 joins a growing list of Scoot flights which have been delayed or cancelled in recent months.


Last week, Scoot flight TR7 between Gold Coast and Singapore was diverted to Sydney due to an unruly passenger on board.


On Dec 30 last year, an electrical component defect led to the grounding of a Taipei-Singapore flight, TR899. More than 350 passengers were affected and had to spend the New Year in Taipei.

Earlier in the month, a flight bound for Singapore from Athens, Flight TR713, was delayed at least three times. Passengers were made to board and disembark the planes on three separate occasions over two days. The flight eventually arrived in Singapore about 56 hours later than scheduled.

TR definitely can't be blamed for the TR7 diversion out of OOL to SYD. QF and VA domestic cabin crew have both nominated OOL as their least favourite port in regards to passenger behaviour. I think in that case they made the right call for the safety and comfort for the other passengers on board, even though I would have loved to see the instigator face the Singaporean police.

Another Scoot incident in Taipei https://mothership.sg/2019/03/scoot-...gapore-taipei/
However it seems that it may not be a real technical incident as Scoot now say that it will Retrain the pilots involved in the incident
