Re: Updated: Aeroflot 1492 SSJ100 fire at Moscow (SVO) - 40+ confirmed dead

Judging from a lot of these comments here, I'd say that the people proposing to ban cabin baggage have an pre-existing axe to grind against cabin baggage, and they're using SU1492 as a pretext to push their agenda. Some of us traveled in 90s and we know that passengers can easily split the luggage ...

The cost of putting everything in the hold would be massive. Why are we arguing about things that 20 years ago were a non-issue? Bulky stuff in the hold, one SMALL bag 3-5 kg (containing valuables) in the cabin. If it is small enough, goes under the seat and you can take it with you, if larger (e.g...

It is plausible - the aircraft was overweight since it had just taken off. As such, it had a very hard landing that caused the main gear to puncture the tanks. Fuel poured out from the tanks and onto the hot engine exhausts. A huge fireball engulfed the aircraft and by the time it stopped, the fire...
