Agreed that the gear seems to be down, at least partially. If they did a gravity - assisted lowering, does that mean we should also be looking for open gear doors? Since the RAT deployment photo shows gear up, I'd assume that was the only way to do it. Maybe they were better off belly landing it aga...Jump to post

Photos circulating of allegedly the aircraft in question after 1st approach, black marks under the engines, RAT deployed.
Sad News If they had so little fuel, I Wonder why they didn't try to land without the front gir deployed... It has been done before ... My guess is if the fuel starvation is true that they were so focused on the landing gear they were not paying attention to the fuel, or even considering that they ...Jump to post

Alleged footage of a survivor being pulled out. Being reported Zafar Masud.
Leaked passenger lists (while I don't agree with them being released so soon) shows someone with that name sitting in 1C.
Which ATC station would have control over this flight at the time of the crash? Transcripts are already online courtesy of VASaviation; https://youtu.be/B0pQfgi9ZqU Absolutely telling. I'm completely against jumping to conclusions, but I will not bat an eye if it's revealed to be CFIT. Truly awful.Jump to post
Was sitting at my gate for my flight from LCY-AMS this morning when I first read the news. Glad my flight was unaffected but I'd hate for them to go away!

Shame on those of you claiming it was all a fake and the overwhelming evidence was photoshopped and faked literally right up until the moment Iran admitted it. I have to agree with you on this.

Reminder to fellow members that even if you end up being right about the missile, it's still not ok to jump to conclusions in the future. "Told you so" messages expected to flood in any time now It’s not jumping to conclusions when the evidence is staring you right in the face. It still i...Jump to post

First, my condolences to the family and friends of those who perished. May the dead rest in peace. Think folks. It's the same exact flight that he flew on a few months ago. And that flight just ended in a crash.. I would find that a bit scary too. Why is that a scary thing? How many times have you ...Jump to post

We all stand with you, HA!!
Having a retractable landing gear will give them a bit more airspeed too since they won't have the drag of the gear hanging down. If I'm not incorrect, the savings in not having to maintain the gear system outweighs the savings (in time and money) of retractable gear on the short flights they opera...Jump to post
The silver is a nice touch if not purely just out of relief that it's not EXACTLY the same as others.... but it doesn't quite look too special in any way.

If the old WOW Air model did not work, why should it work now? It arguably *did* work, until the A330s and overexpansion happened. I think if they let things stew for a few years like how they initially did they'd see better results. Lord knows Iceland's economy could use it, and so could my wallet...Jump to post
AMS has been in the (local) news time and time again, they're really dropping the ball and as a passenger the experience has only gotten worse. I really hope they manage to get things on track because this has been going on for years.Jump to post

Last night I was traveling on a DL A321, and noticed that at door 2L and 2R the seats in the row in front of the exit (I believe row 12) were partially blocking the door.

There also seems to be a lot of passengers who were allowed to travel one way with the bag and then told on the return that it’s too big. Either use the rules or don’t. My wife fell victim to this.

Absolutely no sympathy for Boeing for sitting on this for too long when they writing has been on the wall for the past decade.

The original in-cabin video of the right side may very well be the view of one of the last people to get out given how far back they were. Really scary thought.

Anything to bring a cheatline back is decent in my book.

Would this be a perfect opportunity for a carrier like easyJet to start a transatlantic hub using KEF as a 'halfway' base?
