Not Air Transat's Week

A couple of days ago a $7.65 million compensation settlement was finalized for passengers traumatized by Air Transat's A330 no-engine landing in the Azores in August 2001. The company takes the official stance that the matter is over and will not affect finances.

Today an Air Transat A310 taking off out of Cuba experienced a mechanical problem with its rudder. The exact nature of the problem is unclear, but the CBC story quotes a spokesperson for the airline saying the plane's rudder "partially fell off." I spent a while looking for details on that story, but this National Post story is equally vague.
