  5. A Hong-Kong based air freight company has announced a ban on Vivo smartphones after a major fire that occurred over the weekend. A shipment of Vivo Y20 phones caught fire right before it was about to be loaded into a Hong Kong Air Cargo that was bound for Thailand, The Standard reported. © Twitter Videos of the shipment on fire posted online show the blazing fire in full effect. It shows the fire started with one pallet that later spread to two more. Pictures of the incident that were shared online show numerous Vivo branded smartphone boxes. Needless to say, the burning of the shipment could have cost lives if the fire occurred while the plane was in flight. The fire took 40 minutes to put out and resulted in an unspecified number of smartphones being damaged. Vivo Mobile Pallet Catches Fire While Loading in Cargo Plane at HKG pic.twitter.com/sW7NXIoPd5 — Solo Shokeen (@SoloShokeen) April 11, 2021 Now, many Airline industry outlets are reporting that Hong Kong Air Cargo has banned Vivo devices and two air freight companies until further notice. As of now, the cause of the fire is not known but it is possible that it could have been caused by the lithium-ion batteries. Batteries in smartphones can cause fires if they are defective, damaged or trigger a chemical reaction. This has happened before in the past where the Samsung Galaxy Note 7 infamously caught fire in 2016. What’s surprising is that the shipment caught fire right before it was loaded onto the aircraft. So a pressurised cabin cannot be blamed in this situation which could point to faulty or damaged batteries. Even the slightest of fires can cause an aeroplane to crash and in this case, it could have resulted in a catastrophic crash. Git this on a chat. Anyone can verify? Don't know the date but it's from #HongKong #HKG airport. A pallet catches fire. Luckily this was on ground. @jaylpod @Chyan pic.twitter.com/m07Zd5sgdn — Andre Quiros (@flyingheavy747) April 11, 2021 Vivo is currently investigating the cause for the fire and said in a statement to Android Authority, “We have paid high attention and immediately set up a special team to work closely with the local authorities to determine its cause.” Vivo will keep the media and public informed about any further developments. Vivo sells the Y20 in India too and there is no confirmation as to whether batteries on the Indian models could cause a fire as well. We will update the story once Vivo comes out with an explanation on what actually happened. Source: The Standard, AirCargoWorld View the full article

  7. There's always a fine line between hilarious and cringey when official Twitter accounts of companies interact online, and well, looks like we've finally hit cringe territory with the Delhi International Airport, as it tried to shoot its shot this Valentine's Day and flirt with different airlines. Who asked for this PDA between a freaking airport and airlines? Who came up with the idea? Who actually approved this idea thinking it's a good one? Oh, wait. Since it's Delhi Airport, it is embodying every Dilli ka launda, of course. The only explanation that makes sense, tbh. No offence to all the Dilli ke launde out there... Starting off with IndiGo, they have a runway pun. Hey @IndiGo6E, promise me youâll never run away from my runway! #DELlovesYou #ValentinesDay2020 â Delhi Airport (@DelhiAirport) February 14, 2020 Then, Air India gets another pun, obviously. Hey @airindiain, youâll always be my love at first flight! #DELlovesYou #ValentinesDay2020 â Delhi Airport (@DelhiAirport) February 14, 2020 Vistara also gets a normal, flirtatious message. Hey @airvistara, its valentines day, want to continue flying higher with us? #DELlovesYou #ValentinesDay2020 â Delhi Airport (@DelhiAirport) February 14, 2020 Now comes the worst one. Hey @flyspicejet, love how you turn my hub red, hot and spicy! #DELlovesYou #ValentinesDay2020 â Delhi Airport (@DelhiAirport) February 14, 2020 Thanks, I hate it. Also, basically Delhi Airport is a hoe, openly flirting with so many airlines, no loyalty whatsoever. Looks like it actually worked with IndiGo, though, as they replied. @delhiairport Oh darling, your love brings me back on-time, every time! #DELlovesYou #ValentinesDay2020 #LetsIndiGo â IndiGo (@IndiGo6E) February 14, 2020 I have no words.

Keep it spicy! #DELlovesYou â Delhi Airport (@DelhiAirport) February 14, 2020 The only reply that matters, tho. pic.twitter.com/ZPbnU5Cr7z â I stand with Shaheen Bagh (@GulRose_views) February 14, 2020 Me, after I saw the tweets- Lol Wut? https://t.co/r7xHmMhpQl â Rahul Rane (@Handle_Rahul) February 14, 2020 Yep.

  8. Do you happen to remember that really hilarious scene in the TV series 'Friends', where Joey wears all of Chandler's clothes, including his boxers, just because they were in an argument? Well, of course, you remember, that scene. It's downright funny and we've seen it at least ten times already! But here, you can still refresh your memory: Why are we even taking about this scene? Well, because a woman did something similar with her clothes and we think she pulled off a 'Joey' pretty damn well! A woman in Manchester pulled off a Joey by wearing at least 4kg of clothes on her because the flight she was booked in gave her a tough time! 30-year-old Natalie Wynn was travelling to Fuerteventura via a flight with a friend and the airline official weighed her bag and found out it was 9.4 kilos, which was 3.4 kilos more than the actual limit. The woman was given no choice than to pay £65, which is INR 5,800. She obviously refused to pay such an exorbitant amount and started emptying her bags and wearing all her clothes one by one! © Instagram “I put on four dresses, two pairs of shorts, I tied a dress around my neck, put a skirt on, I shoved two dresses down the dresses I had on, and two pairs of shoes as well, and a cardigan” she told a popular international publication. With so many clothes on, it wasn't easy for her to breath and it was significantly hot but people around her were cheering for her, so that gave her hope to travel wearing all her luggage! “There were people around us cheering us on because after I did it my friend decided she would do it too because her baggage was also overweight. We were definitely a sight walking on to the plane” she added. © Instagram While other passengers did offer Natalie some space in their luggage for her clothes, the airline officials didn't allow that. So Natalie had no choice really but to face the heat and that too quite literally! But as soon as she got on the plane, she started taking the extra clothes off one by one and it was quite a task. She had to do it because otherwise, she would have passed out from the heat! © Instagram This is seriously such a great reminder of the iconic show, which we still happen to catch once every while! Looking at Natalie's dedication to resolve this matter by wearing all her clothes instead, one of the airline spokespeople said, "later this month we are increasing our hand baggage allowance to 8kg. This will hopefully help her travel a little less like Joey from 'Friends' next time!” © Instagram Well, good job Nat! You actually changed some airline rules around by pulling off the Joey stunt. So proud of you!
  9. A second heartwarming story on Twitter in one day and not a story about a bunch of trolls? How? I never knew this was even possible. Okay, keeping all the jokes aside, I would just like to say Twitter is having a good day today. First, there was a son who helped his dad who was about no customers showing up at his donut shop with the power of social media and now, a huge company took out the time to give the perfect response to a little boy with big dreams. Alan Joyce, the CEO of Qantas, an Australian airline took the time to respond to 10-year-old Alex Jacquot who had sent him a handwritten letter asking for advice about his own airlines called Oceania Express. Just look at the adorable little letter! He's already working on his dreams and has tried to set up everything, he's so serious about achieving this that he wrote to a man who he knows can guide him. This kid is going places, I can tell you that right now. Well, a CEO of big company is obviously busy but I still can't get over how Alan Joyce took out the time to give a proper response to Alex. After all, CEOs help out other CEOs. Here's the letter Alan sent back to Alex: Such a good way to encourage a little kid to go and achieve his dreams. You already know that Alex is going to remember this letter his whole life, and it will probably motivate him as well. Look at how happy he looks! Our competitors don't normally ask us for advice, but when an airline leader reached out, we couldn't ignore it. Naturally, there was only one way to respond: CEO to CEO. pic.twitter.com/JTFpzn5a6Y — Qantas (@Qantas) March 11, 2019 Everyone will be flying with Oceania Express in a few years. Corporate Australia taking our young people seriously! I love it! Investing in the future....Can't wait to book a ticket with Oceania Express....ð https://t.co/zJ8YBIyaLd — Jane Artup (@Janeartup) March 11, 2019 Well done. As a former Qantas employee, I could not be more proud than I am right now to be affiliated with a company (that I will always feel part of). Well done, Alan. — âHeather Forresterâ (@itsme_heather) March 11, 2019 Love all the hashtags. Hats off to Alan Joyce & @Qantas What an opportunity for Alex and all those Oceania Airline employees. I hope we see Oceania Airlines in the skies one day! #dreambig #dreamscancometrue #ifyoucandreamityoucandoit #kidpower https://t.co/Y0UektKGOa — Justin Hill (@jedjnr) March 11, 2019 Young fans are important. This is how business persons should respond to young fans. And if you haven't flown Qantas, you're missing out on one of my favorite airlines, and a gorgeous country to fly over and visit. https://t.co/cgv8yZF79I — Vic.castillo23 (@VC2388) March 11, 2019 Exactly. Seeing it posted on social media does make this more of a marketing exercise, but can't fault it if the end result is inspiring entrepreneurs of any age. Well done Qantas. — Jason Bowman (@freakdesign) March 11, 2019 He's coming for you! Brilliant! - And wonderful to see Catering is high on his list of priorities. Other Airline CEO's lookout! https://t.co/tRhnpnp6R5 — Jeremy Clark ð¬ð§ð¨ð­ð²ð¾ (@Trayset) March 11, 2019 This is so cute. Hey Alex - Pete drew some blueprints up for your first plane! Good luck! #TheProjectTV pic.twitter.com/HIkveqLWH5 — The Project (@theprojecttv) March 11, 2019 Yes. "Please take me seriously." Alex is very relatable. — Bela (@_Bellabyrinth) March 11, 2019

  14. Marriage proposals are getting more and more creative by the day. From proposing your soulmate underwater to popping the question on a bungee-jump adventure, men are leaving no stone unturned to outdo each other in nailing the perfect proposal. Turns out it's not all that difficult to pull off a good proposal, and you don't even need to go bungee jumping for it. Narendra Anandani, who hails from Nagpur, travelled to Indore to propose to his girlfriend. She was supposed to take a flight to Goa from Indore. Once inside the Goa-bound plane, Narendra spoke on the in-flight intercom and revealed himself. His girlfriend had no inkling that he was on the same plane. © YouTube As she got up from the seat and walked across the aisle towards him, Narendra went down on his knees with a rose in hand. The girl was completely taken by surprise and was now visibly blushing. As she turned around, the flight crew stood holding placards that said “Will you marry me?” She answered with an immediate 'yes', as everyone onboard the Indigo flight clapped in delight. Speaking to TOI, airport director Aryama Sanyal said, “Indigo airlines staff sprang to action and helped him propose in corridor of aero-bridge and inside aircraft.” We are quite impressed with Narendra's creative proposal – it's the perfect proposal for us lazy bums. What's best is he got to go to Goa with his girlfriend after that.
  15. A Delta Airlines jet takes off from Washington National Airport in Washington, US, August 9, 2017. REUTERS/Joshua Roberts/Files WASHINGTON: A rare early winter snowstorm hitting the southeast United States forced Delta Air Lines on Friday to cancel hundreds of flights just two weeks before Christmas. The move could have a domino effect since the storm is hitting Delta?s largest hub, in Atlanta. The carrier said it cancelled 375 flights as of midday and encouraged travellers to change travel plans ? without incurring a change fee ? if they were booked on flights through Atlanta over the weekend. Forecasters issued a rare winter weather warning for the southern United States, with snow hitting places that rarely see it. While Atlanta is only expected to get one to two inches of snow, that is enough to cause dangerous driving conditions. "Delta will maintain a delayed operation to ensure flights are properly de-iced and continuously moving," the company said in a statement. The airline cautioned that it may "add cancellations or further delays as needed", depending on how the storm develops. Customers will be allowed to request a refund for cancelled flights.
  16. Photo courtesy: Airplane-pictures.net KARACHI: Iran's Mahan Air will be launching two weekly flights between Tehran and Lahore from December 18, according to Iranian state news agency IRNA. The inaugural flight for Tehran will leave on Dec 18 from Lahore's Allama Iqbal International Airport - the fifth direct flight between the two countries, the IRNA reported. The development is seen as yet another step to enhance connectivity between the people of Iran and Pakistan, as Lahore, the second largest city of the country, also is Pakistan's cultural hub. At present, Kish Air is operating direct flights between Islamabad and Tehran; Iran Air operates flights between Karachi and Tehran, whereas Taban Air flights operate between Lahore and Mashhad. Pakistan's Shaheen Air operates direct flights between Lahore and Mashhad.
  17. Women spread fryums for drying on a rooftop as an IndiGo Airlines aircraft moves on the runway after landing at the Sardar Vallabhbhai Patel International Airport in Ahmedabad, India. Photo: REUTERS NEW DELHI: A video allegedly showing security staff of India?s IndiGo airline manhandling a passenger went viral on Monday, prompting the federal government to launch an investigation into the incident involving the country?s biggest airline. In the video, widely shared on social media and televised on local news channels, at least two IndiGo staff members can be seen pinning a passenger down on the ground after an argument on the tarmac at New Delhi airport. The male passenger shouts and attempts to fight back but is overpowered by the IndiGo staff. Reuters could not independently verify the authenticity of the video. ?This is absolutely unacceptable,? Jayant Sinha, India?s junior minister for civil aviation told the Times Now news channel. The airline has been asked to submit a report on the incident to the aviation ministry by Wednesday, after which the government will see what action needs to be taken, Sinha said. IndiGo, which is owned by InterGlobe Aviation Limited and flies about one in every two passengers in the country, said it had apologised to the passenger after the incident, which local media said occurred on October 15. ?Whatever may have been the provocation, our staff were completely out of line and didn?t follow laid down procedures,? Indigo President Aditya Ghosh said. ?Even while the investigation was going on we immediately suspended the involved employees.? Similar incidents have been reported elsewhere. In April, a video showing a passenger being dragged from US-based United Airlines aircraft in Chicago after he refused to give up his seat also went viral, sparking a public outcry and forcing the airline to apologise. India has recently implemented new rules barring troublesome passengers from flying for up to two years after a lawmaker admitted assaulting an airline official. On Monday, IndiGo faced a raft of criticism on social media. ?Take action against Indigo airlines for the unruly action against the passenger, I am not travelling this airline now,? Twitter user Manish Dhanuka? wrote.
  18. PARIS: Air France on Thursday unveiled a new lower-cost subsidiary called Joon that will specifically target well-travelled millennials. A new medium-haul service will begin operating from Charles de Gaulle airport in Paris later this year, with long-haul flights to follow in summer 2018. The French carrier unveiled details of its new service after resolving a lengthy dispute between the management and pilots over the establishment of the subsidiary. Joon is "especially aimed at a young working clientele, the millennials (18 to 35 year-olds), whose lifestyles revolve around digital technology", Air France said in a statement, without elaborating on what new technology would be deployed. The name was chosen "to illustrate a positive state of mind", it added. Joon is aimed at helping Air France compete with the increasingly intense competition from budget European carriers such as Easyjet and Gulf airlines such as Emirates. However, the airline said: "Joon will not be a low-cost airline as it will offer original products and services that reflect those of Air France." While Air France´s pilots have agreed to support the new subsidiary on condition they will receive the same pay and conditions as on the main airline, the hiring of stewards, hostesses and part of the ground personnel for the new service will be outsourced. The pilots were initially hostile to the plan, fearing they would be forced to accept lower wages. In September 2014, they went on strike for two weeks over the expansion of Air France´s low-cost European subsidiary Transavia, grounding thousands of flights.
  19. If we ask you to list down the benefits of travelling in a plane, what are the key things that come to your mind? We guess the amount of time you save will be one of them! Second will be comfortable seats, right? Now, imagine if that comfort is taken away and the flights are turned into Delhi Metros or DTC buses where you will have to stand throughout the journey? No we are not late for April 1st, and we are not talking PIA (Pakistan International Airlines) either. This is a new tactic that Viva Colombia, a budget airline is considering to make tickets more affordable. They are planning to remove all seats from its planes and will make the passengers stand, in hopes that it will bring the fares down by squeezing in more passengers in each flight. © Pixabay (For representation) “There are people out there right now researching whether you can fly standing up – we're very interested in anything that makes travel less expensive,” William Shaw, the airlines' founder and CEO said, according to a report published in The Independent. Shaw further added, “Who cares if you don't have an in-flight entertainment system for a one-hour flight? Who cares that there aren't marble floors…or that you don't get free peanuts?” Ugh, that's fine but no seats, isn't that too much? © Wikimedia The concept of standing in flights is a bold step and risky to say the least, but VivaColombia is definitely not the first one to try this out. A few years back, Ryanair revealed plans for standing-only tickets, which never saw the light of the day. Earlier, this year, PIA made a few passengers stand in the aisle as the flight was overbooked. We are sure PIA wasn't on the same page as the two mentioned above, when it pulled this stint off. Standing in a crowded bus or metro is fine, but standing in an airplane, at thousands of feet above the ground, will take us a lot of time to come to terms with. But, even Einstein was called a weirdo for his ideas! Who knows this might be the next big thing in the aviation industry.
  20. The United States announced Wednesday it would implement tough new security rules for all airlines flying into the country, but held off from a threatened expansion of its carry-on laptop ban. Secretary of Homeland Security John Kelly said evolving terror threats made it imperative to raise overall security standards, rather than take a piecemeal approach on personal electronics. "Make no mistake: our enemies are constantly working to find new methods for disguising explosives, recruiting insiders, and hijacking aircraft," Kelly said. "We cannot play international whack-a-mole with each new threat. Instead, we must put in place new measures across the board to keep the traveling public safe and make it harder for terrorists to succeed." The move put off for the moment an extension of the ban on laptops and other carry-on personal electronics to flights from Europe, something that had been under discussion for months. The laptop ban was instituted in March for eight North African and Middle East countries based on intelligence that the Daesh group was working to build a bomb into a tablet or laptop computer. For the same reason, Britain also banned similar-sized electronics from being carried into cabins on direct flights from six countries. In a speech at a conference of the Center for a New American Security, Kelly said the terror threat to airlines has not diminished. "In fact, I am concerned that we are seeing renewed interest on the part of terrorist groups to go after the aviation sector -- from bombing aircraft to attacking airports on the ground, as we saw in Brussels and Istanbul." He said airlines and airports around the world would have to implement a mix of new technological and physical screening methods for passengers and their devices. 2,000 daily flights in focus Homeland Security officials said the agency would issue directives to about 180 air carriers in 105 countries, including US carriers, that fly into the United States. Collectively they operate about 2,000 US-bound flights each day carrying some 325,000 passengers. Kelly also said the United States would push harder for foreign airports to accept "preclearance" immigration operations manned by US Customs and Border Patrol officials to process US-bound passengers before they board their flights. Such operations have already been established in 15 locations in six countries, including Canada, Ireland and the United Arab Emirates. But it raises sensitive sovereignty issues to have US law enforcement officials operate inside another country. US officials remained vague about the specific requirements of the new program. Airlines will be pressed to adopt a mix of new measures, including installing new screening technology, making more use of chemical sniffer dogs, and other unspecified steps. But the precise requirements in each case would depend on individual airlines, the airports they fly from, and their current levels of security. Some will have to make only minor improvements, they said. Asked about timeframes, officials would only say that they would give adequate time for the airlines to adapt. "We are raising the bar globally" for security standards, said one senior official who declined to be identified. They also said they expect nearly all carriers to be able to meet the new standards. Those that cannot or will not, they said, would be forced to reject all passenger electronics, either in the cabin or hold of the aircraft, or may even find themselves unable to fly to the United States.
  21. If yo hate Air India and have always had a horrendous experience then you are not the only one going through it. Apparently fliers the world over unanimously agree on it being a pretty crappy airline when it comes to service. Bloomberg’s latest report on airlines reveals that if you fly with the wrong carrier, your chances of being delayed are increased by 55%. © Twitter FlightStats, and aviation insight company has released the best and the worst airline company list. Unsurprisingly, Air India ranks third in the worst carrier list. Here are the complete listings: World's best airlines of 2016 1. KLM – 11.47 percent 2. Iberia – 11.82 percent 3. JAL – 12.2 percent 4. Qatar Airways – 13.66 percent 5. Austrian – 14.26 percent 6. ANA – 14.46 percent 7. Singapore Airlines – 14.55 percent 8. Delta Air Lines – 14.83 percent 9. TAM Linhas Aéreas – 14.93 percent 10. Qantas – 15.7 percent World's worst airlines of 2016 1. El Al – 56 percent 2. Icelandair – 41.05 percent 3. Air India – 38.71 percent 4. Philippine Airlines – 38.33 percent 5. Asiana Airlines – 37.46 percent 6. China Eastern Airlines – 35.8 percent 7. Hong Kong Airlines – 33.42 percent 8. Air China – 32.73 percent 9. Korean Air – 31.74 percent 10. Hainan Airlines – 30.3 percent Of course, the airline didn’t take the accusation too well and a response came out quickly. "We totally disagree with the report published by FlightStats about AI”, Dhananjay Kumar, the spokesperson said. The official statement also mentioned how the reports were actually fabricated. "Initially it seems that the report is fabricated, so AI management will investigate the report till the end”. © Twitter Twiterrati was not surprised at all and in fact, Air India was heavily trolled . Air India ranked third worst airline in terms of flight delays. It would have been first but then it got delayed again. — Arnab Ray (@greatbong) January 9, 2017 Shocked that Air India is only the third worst airline on the planet. The study is definitely fabricated. — Sahil Barua (@sahilbarua) January 10, 2017 Will the carrier redeem its reputation or slip even further down? Only time will tell.
