Jetstar A320 Engine Trouble

A Jetstar Airbus A320 operating flight JQ956 from Sydney to Cairns made an emergency landing in Brisbane. After around 30 minutes of flying the cabin started to fill with smoke and a scraping noise was heard. One of the engines were shut down leaving only one operational. Throughout the rest of the flight the cabin lights flickered and the cabin was still filled with smoke. The aircraft landed safely and no injuries were reported. The cause is being investigated.

I don’t really like those cheap feeling A320s. Would rather go on a Qantas 737. I think low costs need to find an alternative. I hope Jetstar becomes a fully 787 airline when its routes are popular enough.

Not going to happen, the 787 won’t work on short routes where JQ needs to minimize CASM. Larger aircraft have higher CASM for short routes compared to small 737s and A320s.

787-8 will always be to big for these routes

Join the club. Did you hear JQ Pacific retired all their 737-400s some of which were only manufactured in 1999that were fairly young instead getting an all A320 fleet replacement.

On a more serious note I had a friend on this flight who is asthmatic he got off completely normal just wheezing a bit

I was on a 3hr flight with TR because dad was cheap to Singapore, and after 30 mins I wanted to get off. Legroom was horrid, cabin smelled disgusting even the washrooms smelled nice, and the entire plane just felt cheap. Couldn’t wait to jump of that plane, only to find the next leg of my trip also with TR.

Do you require a therapist to talk your feelings over with? Mental health is a serious issue, please talk to a medical professional to seek help if you’re regularly having those thoughts.

Was joking, sorry.

That’s because you’re on budget airlines.

Still, I’ve been on AC rouge and Westjet, and those were fine. At least the seat recline on TR was generous.
