Title 2
Effectiveness of In-Service Reliability in Aircrafts

Synopsis 2
The in-service reliability measures the unforeseen service interruptions due to technical failures and associated required maintenance. The types of interruptions can be described as below:

– Delay at takeoffs, departing later than scheduled time
– Mishandled baggage
– Flight cancellations
– Aircraft has to land at different airport than the scheduled ones (air diversions)
– Aircraft returns to departure airport (turn backs)

The improvements through in-service reliability in these aspects may not ensure 100% reliability, but they are still crucial steps to be taken for high-quality service.
