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 point of view. In my opinion, I think that Singapore Airlines (SIA) staff should check the craft before carefully before approving it to take the flight as the SIA will be responsible for a hundred passengers, ensuring that they are safe on board. Although Singapore Airlines (SIA) do not have any history of plane disasters, 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. If the plane unfortunately crashed, many innocent lives will be taken away and families will be affected. I believe that Singapore Airlines (SIA) should be more careful.

  1. I agree with your point that the staff should have checked the craft carefully before approving it to take flight. It is their responsibility and duty to ensure that all passengers on board to be safe. If they had checked the plane carefully, this accident could not have occur. After this incident, I believe that they had learnt their lessons and will be more careful and serious when checking the aircraft before approving it to take flight.
