Qantas grounds A380 flights after engine failure

SYDNEY, Nov 4 (Reuters) - Australian airline Qantas Airways QAN.AX grounded its entire fleet of A380 aircraft on Thursday after an engine failure forced one its flights to make an emergency landing in Singapore.

“We will suspend all A380 takeoffs until we are fully confident we have sufficient information about (flight) QF32,” Qantas Chief Executive Alan Joyce told reporters.

Qantas operates six A380s.
