Passengers on a Singapore Airlines (SIA) flight bound for Shanghai had a bit of a scare when both engines of the aircraft experienced a temporary loss of power amid bad weather, media reports said today.
The incident occurred at 39,000 ft about 3.5 hours after Flight SQ836, operated by an Airbus A330-300, left Changi Airport on Saturday, reported The Straits Times.
"Both engines experienced a temporary loss of power and the pilots followed operational procedures to restore normal operation of the engines" it quoted the airline's spokesman as saying.
The flight with 182 passengers and 12-crew on board continued to Shanghai and touched down safely at 10.56pm local time, he added.
The engines were thoroughly inspected and tested upon arrival in Shanghai with no anomalies detected.
SIA is reviewing the incident with engine maker, Rolls-Royce and Airbus, according to the Singapore daily.
