    After every flight, Quantas pilots fill out a form called a "Gripe Sheet", which tells mechanics about problems with the aircraft.

    The mechanics correct the problems, document their repairs on the form and then the pilots review the gripe sheets before the next flight. Never let it be said that the Quantas ground crews do not have a sense of humour.

    Here are some actual maintenance complaints submitted by Quantas' pilots and the solutions recorded by the maintenance engineers. By the way, Quantas is the only major airline that has never had an accident.

    (P= The problem logged by the pilot)

    (S= The solution and action taken by the mechanics.)
