British Airways Action Attracts FAA QuestionsL.A.-London Flight Used Only 3 EnginesBy Sara Kehaulani Goo, Washington Post Staff WriterTuesday, March 1, 2005; Page E04 The Federal Aviation Administration said it is questioning British officials about a British Airways jet that headed for London's Heathrow airport from Los Angeles with only three of its four engines in operation. After an engine failed shortly after takeoff, the flight crew decided to continue to London but had to make an emergency landing in Manchester, England. U.S. aviation safety officials said the decision not to put the aircraft down for repair raises concern about the potential impact of a new European Union law that requires European carriers to reimburse passengers for substantial delays. U.S. officials said they have no evidence that British Airways was influenced by the regulation, but many pilots for U.S. carriers said their airline would never have approved such a move.http://www.washingtonpost.com/wp-dyn/articles/A61698-2005Feb28.htmlJet Flies On With One Engine OutBy Eric Malnic and Hector Becerra, Times Staff Writers, 01 March 2005Despite LAX takeoff malfunction, British Airways pilot continues nonstop trip to London.
