"...Group executive Qantas Airlines Operations, Lyell Strambi, said a heavy maintenance check of the A330 was done by Lufthansa Technik in the Philippines' capital Manila in December 2008.

It has undergone a number of routine maintenance checks, most recently by Qantas Engineering in Melbourne in May, he said.

"Qantas always has high levels of oversight in place, so where maintenance takes place is not relevant," Mr Strambi said.

"The electrical connector that caused the Jetstar incident was not part of the work undertaken in Manila last year."

Mr Strambi said that when maintenance was carried out on Qantas planes overseas only reputable providers were used and they were overseen by on-site Qantas engineers.

The Jetstar plane was the same model as the Air France flight which plunged into the Atlantic Ocean off the coast of Brazil on June 1 with 228 people on board." http://news.theage.com.au/breaking-news-national/jetstar-plane-forced-to-land-in-guam-20090611-c47t.html
