Not to be rude, but please check the correct information before making such posts. The captain of the aircraft was a decorated ex-IAF officer with 40+ years of flying experience. All of these 737NG incidents (such as this year's Pegasus Airlines crash in Istanbul and 2019's SpiceJet overshoot in Mumbai) seem to be correlated to inclement weather and poor runway maintenance, especially in the case of IX1344.
ok, but the issue is, given the circumstances, is the Boeing 737NG more septical for wet runways than the A320? So do you need more skill to land a 737NG than an A320 under the same circumstances.
The 737 isn't a difficult airplane to fly or land. It does require basic fundamental stick and rudder pilot skills, much like a Cessna, which an A320 does not.
If you notice there aren't many (if any) 737 flying issues in Europe or the USA.
I'd be curious to see the FOQA data from A320 operators in these developing countries.
I had a post listing the half dozen overruns of 737s in America... but some people can keep spreading false statements unopposed?
