Airline fined £5,000 for flying faulty plane

4 August 2008

A budget airline allowed a faulty jet to complete a 6,000-mile round trip from New York to Liverpool and back across the Atlantic despite knowing there was a problem with its engine monitors after it had been struck by lightning, a court heard today.

The company had used some “‘optimistic interpretation'” of rules to allow take-off from, Liverpool, leaving the crew to manually adjust the throttle with the help of another gauge.
