Re: Airbus Is in Talks With British Airways on More A380s

Considering RR has been the engine choice for all of EKs recent A380s and all of BAs A380s, this could be very good news for RR and if an order is signed then we might see a potential PIP.

Re: MH122 SYD-KUL (9M-MTM) diverts to ASP after engine shut down in flight

Instead of debating where and why they landed shouldn't we be focusing on the fact that there was an engine failure and the flight ended with no other events?
