Just saw on CBC that there was an LH emergency landing in YYR but doesn't specify the aircraft type. Could be a 744 or 343/346. Anyone got more info?


The engine is the heart of an airplane, but the pilot is its soul.

A343, smoke/fire indication in the crew rest.

Could a crew member sneaking a smoke in the crew rest area cause this kind of circumstance? Sort of like a cigarette smoldering in a sofa before it fully ignites?

Definitely, the smoke detectors are very sensitive. You can even set one off by getting really close to it and continuously blow air for about 30 seconds. (The carbon dioxide from your lungs will set it off)

It could, but you'd have to be an absolute moron to try it. Not only are the smoke detectors extremely sensitive, if things go wrong it would be quite easy to find out who it was that caused the problem simply by looking (or rather smelling) for the crew member who reeks of smoke. It's not worth risking your job for a dose of nicotine.



Public service announcement: "It's" = "it is". To indicate posession, write "its." Looks wrong, but it's correct grammar

Of course the picture is of an A380. Gotta love the media.

Another common one is deodorant spray, it also is responsible for setting off the ones in the toilets a lot of times.

Okay, but what's this constant deal and it's only a photo to go with a news story for reference so what on earth difference does it make to some on here? Indeed, if you actually read it correctly it clearly stated "In this May 19, 2010 file photo, a Lufthansa plane takes off in Hamburg, Germany"......it makes no claim whatever to anything else. So what exactly is your point? And likewise, yeah you gotta love those who don't bother to read!

Note the comment on the Telegraph article that seems to be from a passenger:

""As I speak"--now 20 hours after deplaning--we've not received a single word directly from Lufthansa other than a sign posted on the military barracks we've been staying in telling us to be ready to head to the airport at 4:00. No doubt there are a myriad factors to consider in situations like this where safety is concerned, but I should think that communication and updates would have been a prime concern once it was determined we were going to stay on the ground. There's been a lot of goodwill among the passengers and good treatment from the locals. Could've been much more unpleasant."
