Swiss 188, Wind 210 Degrees, 6 knots,
Runway 16, cleared for take off. Flight attendants,
take-off in one minute. Delivery good day, LX1056, Info “L”,
Airbus 320 A04, ready for Hamburg. Welcome on board of our Airbus A340 for
the flight LX188 from Zurich to Shanghai. My name is Thomas Frick,
I am the captain on this flight. I am teaming up with two
colleagues today first officer Manuela Durussel and
first officer Hans Conrad Stamm. Runway 16 to Shanghai,
“Deges1S” departure Ladies and Gentlemen,
this is your captain speaking, unfortunately I do not have
very good news for our flight to Shanghai. We had to shutdown
the engine No. 3. A very unusual and uncomfortable
situation: one engine out. Off, Master Caution … engine shutdown
… checked! So, that makes a lot of sense
to turn back now. Do you declare
an emergency? Negative! Our status is “pan-pan”.
(Possible Assistance Needed) Zurich already prepared for a replacement,
what leads to a good connection time. which is the best solution for the passengers.
Great, if everything runs that smoothly. Ready for departure. Guys, we have the knack! ATC: Servus Manu Patrick? Alex!
Salut Alex. Have a Good Flight.
Thank you, you too. Never fly with girls…
they are immediately flirting, with half of the airspace,
aren’t they? What about a “Schoki” a little “Zuckerstoessli” (fast energy) ?
Yes, Thank you Today’s route over the black sea,
Caspian Sea, the entire china,
over Beijing to Shanghai. Welcome to Shanghai. That’s what I like, an ocean liner
on a lush Swiss meadow. Isn’t that the perfect interaction,
between the town and the country? Wow, that’s breathtaking!
You’re Right! Let’s clean up:
This is an A340, all systems ok, ILS present
activate approach phase, please. There is a plane
4000 feet below. We are passing Beijing,
very cloudy today. Glideslope!
Swiss188, clear to land. Clear to land
All lights are on. Flaps full
Gear down Autopilot off
(one hundred) flirting with half of the airspace
aren’t they… ?
