Today I was spotting at BCN and I saw the strangest approach I have ever seen. This 757 flew way over the glide path only to dive at very last moment and then go around. What's remarkable is that the weather perfect and no other aircraft seemed to follow that glide path.
After some research I discovered that this airline had been banned from flying into the EU and then allowed again with some restrictions. Does anyone know why they were banned, and what their current restrictions are?
