Smartwings B737 over Austria on Sep 6th 2019, loss of communication
Last Update: October 25, 2019 / 10:42:26 GMT/Zulu time
Czechia's UZPLN reported in their third quarter 2019 bulletin that the crew attempted to resolve the issue (on the ground only noise was heard when the crew attempted to transmit) while communicating with company dispatch via ACARS in the meantime. Selecting other frequencies did not solve the issue. The microphone plug at the captain's side disconnected. When the crew put the connector back into the correct position, the problem disappeared and two way communication was restored.
