Singapore Air had to ground a second of their A380s yesterday, again due to an issue with the fuel pump mechanism. They experienced a similar problem about 6 weeks ago which was apparently related to an electrical relay in the fuel pump system. This time it was actually the fuel pump that failed. Two incidents so close together clearly call in to question the reliability of the big bird, though the airline has made great efforts to downplay the situation.
