  • Qantas A380s Set To Return This Weekend
    Posted by Sean Broderick 1:04 AM on Nov 23, 2010

    Qantas will return two of its Airbus A380s to service starting Saturday, the carrier said early Tuesday (Sydney time). Here's an AP dispatch from Sydney.

    The announcement comes as Australian regulators said that they have approved a plan submitted by Qantas to return the carrier's six grounded A380s to service. The CASA statement doesn't reveal much, but it underscores that Qantas will "comply with relevant airworthiness directives, as well as service bulletins from Rolls Royce, relating to the Trent 900 engines fitted to the A380 aircraft."
