Default QF 737 Possible engine shutdown AKL - SYD

HI All,

This just came through on a news.com.au feed:

Mayday called for Qantas flight Auckland to Sydney

Quote:
Qantas has issued a mayday call after a plane reported engine failure while on its way to Sydney from Auckland.

Paramedics from NSW are on standby at Sydney Airport after the alert was issued by flight QF144 from Auckland to Sydney at around 2:10pm.

The flight was scheduled to land at 3.10pm but is expected to land at 3:26pm according to FlightRadar24.

It was delayed at Auckland Airport by 55 minutes.

Flight is apparently QF144 - currently on final 34L

Now due in Perth at 20:03 WST. I'm not aware of the reasons for the return to Adelaide earlier today.

Slow time of year for the PRESS.

Need stories to full the time.

Disgruntled PAX is too easy.

Airlines can't win. (Turn-back - maintenance story - Continue - emergency story)

The NAN turn-back was due to smoke in a galley stove.

Slooow news ....
