BA 433 Bird Strike on Previous Landing. Engine Failure on Next Flight. Video.

BA 433 Amsterdam to London.

A friend of mine was a passenger on this flight.

Reported that the flight was delayed due to a bird strike on the previous landing. After inspection, the flight was allowed to go ahead, only to suffer an engine failure shortly after take off.

She captured this video from the passenger cabin.

Praise for BA crew, but quite damning regarding the corporate response.

Regrettably the fierce and unrelenting competition from the likes of Ryanair and other low cost carriers has forced the established airlines into a race to the bottom.

We see ground staff outsourced and, in cases like the one above, those outsourced ground staff just telling people to fend for themselves. Much the same as the low cost carriers do.

It grieves me to see my former employer being slagged off for a poor response to an unexpected event but that is the way it is now with no money available to offer the kind of service once paid for by higher fares.

It's possible that the two events were entirely unconnected.

I now see why people keep querying on here if you actually do have any professional credentials or just an irritating student. **** off and troll elsewhere.

You name it he/she will have a pop at BA, even if it means trying to take the thread off at a tangent. It happened recently in the thread about EasyJet's TV programme, and then again on a thread about a hypothetical engine out on a four holer. I suppose an appearance here was a given.

Must be a reason for the obsession.....but it is getting to appear unhealthy.

In EASA, land I'd argue that BA's safety reporting culture is second to none, and that comes from having a lot of dealings with various areas of BA on different safety matters. I used to work there and remember how strict they were that reports had to be made and followed up.

Certainly there are carriers in the UK and the rest of Europe who concern me, but BA have a very honest and open policy, its' the ones you don't hear about you should be most worried about. Aeroplanes and airlines are big, complex things, If nothing is going on safety report wise then either no-one is noticing, or they are deliberately not reporting.

One major EU flag carrier who suffered a number of incidents in previous years, finally recognised their shortcomings. I am told by an insider that they turned to BA for guidance on how to improve.
