Go-around controversy at Shanghai Hongqiao International Airport[edit]

On 13 August 2011, Qatar Airways Flight 888 declared a low-fuel emergency and elected to divert to Shanghai's Hongqiao Airport. Hongqiao ATC ordered Juneyao Airlines Flight 1112, en route from Shenzhen Bao'an International Airport to Shanghai Hongqiao, to terminate its approach and allow the Qatar Airways Boeing 777-300ER to land. The pilot of Juneyao Airlines Flight 1112 ignored repeated orders to abort their landing and give QR888 priority, ultimately forcing Qatar to go-around. Both aircraft landed safely without injury or damage to the aircraft. Reports in the Chinese aviation industry, however, suggest that the Qatar Boeing 777-300ER landed with 5 tons of fuel remaining (sufficient for 18 minutes of holding plus 30 minutes final reserve), while the Juneyao Airbus A320 had 2.9 tons of fuel remaining (sufficient for 42 minutes of holding plus 30 minutes final reserve). Qatar Airways Flight 888 later continued to Shanghai Pudong International Airport, reaching its destinations 9 hours later than scheduled.[6]

On 29 August 2011, the Civil Aviation Administration of China (CAAC) published its investigation report indicating that Juneyao Airlines Flight 1112 refused to follow six consecutive orders from Hongqiao ATC in the span of seven minutes to abort their approach and that the crew on duty breached regulation CCAR-91-R2 of CAAC. The license of the South Korean Captain was permanently revoked in China and the Chinese co-pilot's license was suspended for six months. The CAAC also issued a bulletin to the Korea Transportation Safety Authority formally reporting the Korean captain's misbehavior. Furthermore, Juneyao Airlines is indefinitely suspended from recruiting foreign flight crew and will have 10% of their slots suspended for three months. Although there was only 5,200 kg of fuel left aboard QR888 after landing, an amount sufficient for another 18 minutes of regular flight plus 30 minutes of reserve, the CAAC indicated that QR888 did not breach any regulations. Nevertheless, the CAAC issued a bulletin to the Civil Aviation Authority of Qatar recommending an improvement in fuel calculation.[7]
