"Both aircraft were Boeing A320..."

Is this the aviation equivalent of non-binary?

Ha Ha! I missed reading that. The reporter obviously thinks A320 is a Boeing aircraft.

And this could be scary..
The article reports ..
- the Nepal Airlines aircraft descended to 7,000 ft

(Nepal has an average elevation of 10,712 feet)

Landing at Kathmandu (elevation 4,400 feet) is quite difficult if you can't descend below 7,000 ...
