    Tabloid remark from someone who doesn't know what he's talking about. All two-engined aircraft are certified to take off on one engine. The pilots also regularily triain on this scenario in simulator.

    Still not any qualified guesses on what really happened?

    I get that; but no airline would take off with just one engine, right? Then redundancy would be compromised per definition.

    This reminds me of the Spanair MD80 accident in Madrid...

    Once you're past V1, or the decision point, you have no choice. And that's why it's necessary to be able to take off on one engine. And that's why they train on this. I don't know what happened, but I suspect a compressor stall (google it), which is not an unusual occurance and it can just as well happen with a brand new engine as an older one.

    Not at all. The Spanair crash was caused by a chain of events, paired with human errors both on the ground and in the cockpit.
