A TU-154 passenger plane of the Azerbaijani Airlines state concern, which was leased in Belarus, was forced to land in Delhi's Indira Gandhi airport on 10th March.
The press service of the concern has told an AzerTaj correspondent that the plane made for Baku from Delhi early in the morning. However, in the 38th minute of the flight the monitor showed that one of the engines was not working. The captain of the plane decided to return and land at that airport.
The pilots landed the plane successfully with two engines. No casualties are reported among the crew members and passengers.

Just another good reason not fly on airlines with too many vowels in their names.

What's the point, Carl? Azeri Airlines have always been a bit iffy. On the Dubai-Baku route they use 737's, but so what, given their spotty maintenance, I'm still flying on Emirates to Baku next week. You can only take so many chances, ya know?
