Almost landed on the wrong runway?

I doubt that the pilots of SQ 422 mistook the smaller Juhu airport for Chhatrapati Shivaji International Airport as claimed by the media. I think the pilots are well trained and experienced enough to differentiate between the two airports. The first attempt to land at Chhatrapati Shivaji International Airport was aborted due to poor visibility but nine minutes later approached the assigned runway 09 and landed without any incident.
"Singapore Captain" any comment from you?

Clarification on this has been published in the media. The story, originally was published in the Indian newspapers and was debunked. Singapore pilots are good. The writer of the blog is being reckless in labelling the pilot as a "silly pilot." SQ006 need not have crashed.

Yet another example blind patriotism by the previous poster. Singapore lacks good pilots and that's why they need to bring in foreign pilots. SQ006 is an exception as Malaysian pilots are usually very good.

No wonder your government is trying to lure more foreigners.

Stick to driving uber or doing other menial tasks and leave the more important jobs to us.

The best is in the Airforce.Doubt MAF have the best,Sukyoi but limited and SQ have a mixed of foreign and local.Turn around is ok as long as not a crash.But Indian Airlines have a past of colourfull pilot lacking hours and so on,google it.Being Sinkie and being silly is another matters left for another day,but foreigner on work permit should not get swell headed,if so go back to China or Middle East or go home.At the end Sinkiepore belongs to Sinkies,born here die here.Trust the Brits and the Fall of Sinkie to a smaller force!Indieland news got nothing to do,justice take longer and woman got the worse.Got a snake and another kill which first ?

Foreigners working and living in Singapore do expect to be looked after and treated well. Do not forget that they if they were to remain in their land of birth, they would not be so outspoken. UMNO will shut them up and make sure they behave.

MAS has recently appointed its new CEO, reportedly with his salutation as " Captain" with many years of experience. The painful memory of MH370/17 have yet to resolved with many questions unanswered. Two former CEOs of foreign origin have resigned.

Other than SQ6 has there ever been any other high profile accidents involving SQ FT pilots? Don't think so......

Think Manna Airline Manna System no local or foreigner can help.Only one way to go, cannot say here.But Air Asia become the de facto Airline.HSBC the default banker of HK.So coming over Sinkiepore may be convenient and lucrative.Better be good or be gone.Dont look back ,where you came from is looted. The whole mechanism a paid up to shut up,but will stop when the money ran out.DOJ still think worse case of money theft.
