Compared with some recent incidents where it was commented on, it looks like pax didn't take their bags with them during evacuation, which is good.

This is why both Stansted and Gatwick need second runways instead of Heathrow needing a third.

Going to AirFleets, this is an ex-Niki A320 circa 2007. I couldn't confirm for the exact airframe, but the other Niki had V2500 engines:

FWIW I think, STN, LGW, and LTN all need 2nd runways, but I think LHR needs a 3rd and 4th! :devil:

Seriously, all the other hubs are growing outside of the EU, time to grow the London airports.

Not taking the bags is progress of a small sort.

I think if you've ever lived or worked near Heathrow, or even tried to just drive on the M4/M25 there at peak times, you would think that the idea of expanding LHR is utterly insane. The airspace and ground infrastructure around it can barely cope now, let alone with more traffic.

It's madness. I think that the costings for the three were that both STN and LGW could have new runways for the price of one at LHR too.

And if this happened at Heathrow, people would say this is why Heathrow needs a third runway: one of worlds busiest airports down to one ingle runway, madness!

BTW, my take: a one-in-five-year incident doesn't qualify as a particular good reason to add (another) runway to an airport system.

Probably true. But then again, the returns from a new runway at LHR would easily outstrip those of STN and LGW combined . . .

Its an ex Citilink (Indonesia) A320. I flew with the plane on 20.02. , on the F/A display in front, it was still showing the Citilink logo and a few placards inside the cabin also still referring to its origin. Noticed that some overhead luggage bins also were unserviceable. Seat covers were worn Eurowings color scheme.
