Quoting Tobias2702 (Reply 6): senseless, polemic comment. Please be reminded that this is not the place for political statements.
calm down. It's not up to you to judge my remarks.
Senseless is the reporting that Mr. M. survived the landing, there were about 87 other people on board who survived it as well and let's all be glad about that. Mr. M. will survive my remark as well, he is an expert at making similar statements.
Flight must have been LH288, they circled for about an hour over STR. Contact Air flies tor LH and LX, I happened to be on a Contact Air F100 last year ZRH-WAW.

The plane involved, D-AFKE, entered LH Regional fleet only at the beginning of September this year. It is former PT-MRT (TAM) and B-12296 (Mandarin). Why was it acquired by LH, actually? I thought they are getting Embraers fro their regional fleet.

I am curious why the aircraft was allowed to land at STR....fuel was not an issue nor was time as it is reported as circling for an hour and the runway was foamed. Why would this potential incident be allowed to land at a basically one runway airport probably closing the field to future operations indefinitely? (FRA and MUC are close by just for starters and with far larger amounts of emergency rescue vehicles due to the larger airport size in case something went wrong. ) Luckily everything went well....aside from the airport being closed....
