My BA Flight Last Year

Thu Aug 17, 2000 3:17 am

Last year i went to JFK from LHR and i was slightly dissapointed because we were on a 747-100. However everything was great, we had a bumpy landing and the captain used the brakes EXTREMELY hard.

Brief but concise trip report!

As for the landing, well there could have been countless reasons for why it was a firm landing; as my Biology teacher once said "everything varies", and as Lauryn Hill says "everything is everything"!

The hard braking was most probably due to an ATC request for the Skipper to get the plane off the active R/W fast, to avoid the approaching jet behind him from doing a GA.
