Hi everybody. The discussion of the Emirates A340-500 repair reminded me of this article. I am no aerospace engineer, but it sounds to me like significant damage to the pressure bulkhead requires complete replacement, which in turn requires taking the entire tail section off. I can’t imagine it is a very cheap repair.
