EI FA Reportedly Suing Over "Bad Landing"

Would be interesting to hear the other side of the story, but it doesn't sound like anyone was injured at any rate.

I'm confused....the co-pilot (assume they mean FO) is responsible for Captain's bad landing?

Fair use excerpt:

"...alleging that the flight's co-pilot failed to adequately supervise the landing by the plane's captain."

We discussed it on the previous Irish thread too. For anyone interested here is the link :

I do wonder how much use she would be in a real emergency.

And in that discussion of the incident we've found that the senior FA on board claimed it was the scariest event of their lives, they thought they were goners. I'm not too sure that would make this simply a bad landing. Is the court still in session at the moment? I'm not finding anything mentioned of it in the press online at all today, though that is probably due to the recent attacks that have been all over the news this past week.

Best,

Case withdrawn.

That is crazy. I don't know what to make of this at all now. Is this woman just completely crazy? Based on what I had read up until now it seemed like what she had been alleging was more or less being verified by her witnesses with respect to what she had claimed up until now. How strange.
