GRIPE SHEET This information about Qantas Airlines comes from an old
flight, pilots fill out a form called a gripe sheet, which conveys to the mechanics problems encountered with the aircraft
during the flight that need repair or correction. The mechanics read and correct the problem, and then respond in writing
on the lower half of the form about what remedial action was taken, and the pilot reviews the gripe sheet before the next
flight. Never let it be said that ground crews and engineers lack a sense of humor. Here are some actual logged maintenance
complaints and problems as submitted by Qantas pilots and the solution recorded by maintenance engineers. By the way, Qantas
is the only major airline that has never had an accident.
