Grounded Planes Hurt IndiGo's Market Share But Not Earnings

Grounded IndiGo, GoAir planes will start flying by April-end, says engine-maker

"During the maintenance check, metal chips were observed on 1 Engine, 3 Bearing Chip detector, which is a known concern on the Neo engine".

Of the 11, eight are operated by IndiGo while GoAir operates three, the DGCA said in a statement. These engines are also being used by Wadia Group-owned airline GoAir and grounding of these planes has caused the two carriers to cancel hundreds of their flights.

Budget carrier IndiGo Airlines announced on Sunday that it A320 Neo aircraft that operated on the Bengaluru-Delhi route earlier in the day was withdrawn here for a maintenance check to attend to a reported defect.

Infinity War subscriber cover revealed — Empire's Avengers
The new trailer for Infinity War shows Tony Stark and Star-Lord teaming up, which looks pretty annoying to the billionaire genius. This has led many to speculate that, since his contract is up, these movies will be the last time we see him as Tony Stark.

This is the third incident of an A320neo powered with P&W engines running into a technical glitch since the grounding of 8 IndiGo's aircraft a week ago, which sent the airline's flight schedules haywire and wreaked havoc with flyers' travel plans. The aircraft, an Airbus320ceo, was temporarily grounded till the issue was resolved. However, during engine start, the Pilot-in-Command observed a hydraulic (not oil) leakage from #2 engine. The flight 6E-439 was forced to ground during the take off after the pilot detected a problem in the engine.

Meanwhile, Pratt and Whitey, US-based engine manufacturers are hopeful that engine issues will settle down by April as they are working on finding a solution and IndiGo and Go Air can resume full fleet operations. Of these, one witnessed metal chips in the left engine, while the other aircraft was withdrawn from service due to a hydraulic leak on its right engine.

According to monthly air traffic data released by the DGCA on Monday, during the month of February alone, 37,964 IndiGo passengers were affected due to flight cancellations, compared with 55,838 passengers affected due to flight cancellations in the 13-month period ended January 2018.

These are among the aircraft not red-flagged by the European or Indian aviation regulator when they recently said A320neos with PW1100 engines (serial number 450 and above) "are more susceptible to inflight shut down".
