Austrian B772 near Shanghai on Oct 3rd 2016, loss of engine thrust
Last Update: October 11, 2016 / 17:17:30 GMT/Zulu time
The problem was identified as a sensor problem, the aircraft was able to depart for the return flight after about 10.5 hours and reached Vienna with a delay of 4.5 hours.
In an internal memo to their staff as well as in communication with Austrianwings the airline claimed the report above was false (without ever contacting The Aviation Herald however) stating to Austrianwings that there had been just a loss of thrust. Confronted with the fact, that the crew DID transmit "Mayday, Mayday, Mayday" and reported an engine failure with Shanghai Approach, while at about 3000 feet positioning for the final approach, the airline had an authorized captain contact Austrianwings. The captain explained that there had been a substantial loss of thrust, about 60% of thrust on the right hand engine, which according to operations manual has to be considered an engine failure, and the crew reacted accordingly. The engine was not shut down.
