Has indigo with PW engines become totally unsafe
Earlier it was about leaving last 6 seats empty but today DGCA has asked Indigo to replace all engines by january at all costs.
Another airline gone to the dogs. See attached another engine failing on kolkata - pune flight. Luckily pilot decided to return. more
If the aeroplane is airworthy by keeping last six seats vacant till Jan.2020 then why not beyond. Or are we willing & prepared to risk till Jan.2020?There should be no compromise on safety and lives of passengers even for a single day/flight.
Earlier DGCA grounded all the Airbus aircraft fitted with two P&W engines. They allowed one P&W engine and the other with GE engine. The airlines should not buy P&W engine fitted Airbus aircraft due to safety reasons like Boeing 737 Max aircraft. P&W engines should be banned for fitment in Airbus 320 aircraft unless they obtain safety certification. The US Civil Aviation agency is more corrupt than any our agency and it depends on how much money P&W pays to FAA. It has happened in the past. The most powerful company P&W can obtain approval of FAA even if their engines fail to meet safety and quality standards. more
Yes this is cause of serious concern why the airlines is allowed to fly such aircraft's, why cant the DGCA force to take corrective action before the planes are air worthy more
I decided to cancel my booking with Indigo as feels it's unsafe. more
