Singapore Airlines (SIA) said on Thursday it found burn marks on electrical wiring in an Airbus A380 superjumbo after smoke entered a lavatory during a flight earlier this week.
The flight crew activated an extinguisher after smelling smoke coming from one of the aircraft’s toilets while the plane was approaching Changi Airport from Hong Kong, said S. Supramaniam, an airline spokesman.
“When the plane landed, our ground crew inspected the aircraft and they discovered some burn marks on some electrical wirings underneath the lavatory, on the cargo hold,” he said. Full story
