TransAsia to cancel more flights
Taiwan's TransAsia Airways yesterday announced more flight cancellations this week as pilots were recalled for retraining following its second plane crash in seven months.
The airline had said Saturday that 90 flights -- all domestic -- would be cancelled today, and another 32 tomorrow.
The Civil Aeronautics Administration on Friday ordered the retraining after it emerged that pilots may have inexplicably shut off one of the two turboprop engines before Flight GE235 went down last Wednesday.
Pilots who fail the tests will be grounded immediately and indefinitely pending further training.
