That just cost UA about $25K for someone with a nicotine addiction.

The article said that the smoke may have came from an APU.

It was caused by a faulty pump in the lav. As usual,the media blew it way out of proportion.

A United Airlines Airbus A319-100, registration N819UA performing flight UA-769 from Rochester,NY to Chicago O'Hare,IL (USA) with 127 people on board, was climbing through 11000 feet out of Rochester, when the crew reported smoke in the cabin and decided to divert to Buffalo,NY (USA). While on final approach the crew reported, that the fire was out and they won't evacuate the aircraft. The airplane landed safely on runway 23 about 10 minutes later, vacated the runway and stopped on an adjacent taxiway to have emergency services examine the aircraft.

Buffalo's Niagara Airport reported, that a water pump sparked a small fire in the rear lavatory, which was put out by a flight attendant. Emergency services did not need to intervene anymore.

Flights usually will not divert due to someone smoking in the lav. The flight will continue to the destination then the police will deal with the offender.

Actually, it was pretty accurately reported. Smoke, lav, landed as a precaution, passengers boarded another A/C to destination. No reports of terror and wimpering, screaming passengers praying for their lives. Just a technical fault. That's what the article says.

   I am not a pilot, but I know that a potential fire is definitely a "get on the ground now" situations. Up there you have flight attendants with axes and fire extinguishers. On the ground you have professional firefighters with specialized training and equipment.

I agree with you, even though the fire department can do more damage than the fire itself, just imagine someone with an ax and fire extinguisher with minimal training swinging it around on a plane. I can picture in my mind what the plane would look like when they got done.

If my memory serves me right, they delayed landing because they thought there wasn't a problem anymore. Maybe if they had landed sooner everyone could have survived.This could have easily been a repeat of that flight.



Long live the 757!

I think that the firefighters know enough not to just run up and start hacking and stabbing a potentially burning airliner. It is also worth pointing out that some places where a fire may be present are not even accessible in flight.

Source....? If I recall the Airbus has a vacuum system and there is no pumps in the laves.

Sorry, that was a poor attempt at humor. I've seen our local department do some major damage to houses and such, tearing out walls and ceilings that didn't need it. You do what you gotta do in them situations to get the flames out.

Systems I work with have no pumps there either. The water tank is pressurized with bleed air.

Some are, not all..... it's always funny to watch a newer mechanic dump the potable water. You open the drain cap, flip the valve to dump and watch out. If the system has a charge it sprays out....!!
