The issue being discussed here is that passengers on a Singapore Airlines (SIA) flight bound for Shanghai had a bit of a scare when both engines experienced a temporary loss of power amid bad weather. The pilots followed operational procedures to restore normal operation of the engines and fortunately, the flight with 182 passengers and 12 crew on board continued to Shanghai and touched down safely. 

The writer did not state any point of view so here's my own point of view. In my opinion, I think that Singapore Airlines (SIA) should have checked everything that affects the safety of the passengers and make sure there are no errors or anything wrong with the engines before allowing the planes to fly. Although Singapore Airlines (SIA) do not have any history of plane disasters, I think that they should still be careful at all times. This incident where both engines of the plane experienced a temporary loss of power amid bad weather, serves as a warning for Singapore Airlines (SIA). It will make them to be always sure that they check everything before the plane takes off. Let's just say if, if the plane did unfortunately crashed, so many innocent deaths will be caused and so many families will be affected. I believe that no one wants this to happen so Singapore Airlines (SIA) should be more careful.

  1. I agree that SIA should have checked for any faults in the engines before taking flight. Should any accidents occur because of SIA's negligence, it would have been devastating to the relatives of the affected passengers aboard the flight. Fortunately in this case, it was only a temporary power loss and did not affect the plane much in air. It is the responsibility of SIA to ensure the safety of their passengers during the flights, and ensure that they have a pleasant experience.
