Upset Pax in Thomas Cook Landing at Leeds Bradford

I see that the BBC have captured an 'interesting' crosswind landing by Thomas Cook at Leeds Bradford. My own view is that you win some and you lose some - the pilots aborted the landing and everyone lived to fight another day. Make your own minds up -

I agree. They gave it ago and aborted with a divert......happy pilots, happy engineers and management got the keys back with no problems!
I thought the Concorde landing was worse!
