I've attached the audio

A PSA Airlines Canadair CRJ-700 on behalf of American Airlines, registration N702PS performing flight AA-5359 from Jackson,MS to Washington National,DC (USA) with 51 people on board, was climbing out of Jackson's runway 34R when the crew stopped the climb at 13,000 feet declaring Mayday Mayday reporting they were losing fuel. The crew queried for any closer airport than Jackson, however, Jackson was the closest. The crew requested to go straight back to the airport taking as close as a final possible and advising they were keeping the aircraft higher. During the descent the crew advised the fuel quantity stabilized, but they were not taking any chances. The aircraft landed safely on runway 16L about 19 minutes after departure and taxied to the apron.

The aircraft remained on the ground for about 7 hours, then positioned to Norfolk,VA (USA), remained on the ground in Norfolk for another 7.5 hours and resumed service.

But wouldnt the typical arrival procedure contain multiple crossing restrictions? I cant imagine they would allow for a continuous descent profile in many cases?

They do. So when ATC gives "Descend via" for the arrival, that authorizes the pilot to descend via the full arrival, adhering to all crossing and speed restrictions as depicted on the chart. Any modification to that call will not only make the pilot comply with the modification, but would cancel the arrival altogether. ATC would have to give another "descend via" to have them continue the arrival.

Audio up !

The British Airways Boeing 787-9 performing flight #BA216 from Washington to London Heathrow made an emergency in Halifax due to smoke in the cabin.
The aircraft (reg. G-ZBKL) declared a Pan Pan and landed at 9.30pm local time.
The firemen boarded the plane after pilots reported smoke in the cabin.

Passengers on board were waiting to be offered accommodations.

First off, the document is over 10 years old, without any updates to it. What tells me this is not only the publish date of the document, but the arrivals they use as in the example section; the RIIVR arrival hasn't been used in 6-8 years.


Second, some.. actually, a lot of this is already in use in the US.

For example, prior to doing any continuous descent operations, the En Route/Center controller would issue a hard crossing restriction at a waypoint that is used for handing off the aircraft to the terminal/TRACON area, where the TRACON would have control on descent for that arrival:

Quote
En Route: cross GRAMM at and maintain FL180.
En Route: Contact SOCAL Approach, 124.9.
Terminal: Descend via the RIIVR TWO arrival. At RIIVR, cleared ILS Runway 25 Left Approach.

Now, En Route gives the descent:

Quote
En Route: Descend via the ANJLL FOUR Arrival.
En Route: Contact SOCAL Approach, 124.9.
Terminal: After CRCUS, Cleared ILS Runway 25 Left Approach.

The pilot already will get the descent optimized and continuous by not having to deal with the hard crossing restriction before entering the Terminal area. So most of this is already done in the US with arrivals already optimized for it. They have been for a while.
