This is just outrageous.
A Boeing plane (must be 737?) readying for departure from CDG Paris to St Petersburgh, Russia caught fire from a bag in luggage compartment. Reportedly, a passenger (whatta prick!) was transporting a bunch of signal flares in it, in violation of rules on flamable items in luggage.
Pax had to be moved to another pane and took off 3 hrs behind schedule.
