easyJet Emergency?

Anyone know why EZY7204 (G-EZIU, an A319) was squawking 7700 descending over north London on her way into Liverpool from Barcelona about half an hour ago?

Emergency services were called to Stansted Airport when an airliner had to land after developing a possible technical problem.
The Easyjet Airbus A319 from Barcelona to Liverpool made a precautionary landing at the airport on Tuesday.

None of the 78 passengers and crew on the flight were injured and the plane was expected to continue its journey to Liverpool once checks had taken place.

Easyjet said fire crews were on standby at the airport as a precaution.

No big deal, aircraft was only a tad over 2 hours down landing at Liverpool.

So, what was the problem? Let's try and learn something instead of all the usual "I'm smarter than you" journo bashing twaddle.

What caused a normal landing to necessitate a 7700 sqk? How did ATC coordinate the scenario? After the recent thread about EZY PAN/Mayday/Fuel emergency into LPL due short fuel and the ensuing debate about what call to make to ATC, this event might have some educational value.

I have gained some inside information, and I can tell you that the crew had indications of a double engine failure and declared a mayday. There was no engine failure and the aircraft landed safely, so just another tech problem.

There were no indications of engine failure. They were getting high EGT readouts on both engines which apparently didn't correlate with all other readouts. Both engines were operating as normal and the landing was made as a precaution.

It's no big deal, it was a fairly standard event.

Scuzi,
Don't know where you have got that information from but you are incorrect. As Brooker 100 says, the crew had Double engine failure indication on their ECAM, but both engines still running.

This is a part of a mail that I have received on the EZY intranet: "The flight from Barcelona to Liverpool was interrupted when the aircraft displayed a double engine failure indication."

As far as I'm aware, what I said is what they told ATC, although I wasn't actually handling the emergency so I may be wrong.

L-Band why do you think sbs recievers should be banned?While I am not an "aerosexual" I am a professional pilot who has an interest in computers and radio and have such a device.Gives me hours of fun as well as giveing me an appreciation of atc.
By the way well done you lads at Easy.

I'd like to know that as well. As a PPL I have found it extremely useful in understanding ATC procedures. What's the harm?

Well that's the thing, you can't go using that information to understand ATC procedures as you will have no idea what is going on apart from what you can see. You'll only be able to see aircraft which are ADS-B equipped. On top of that, what you see on the radar and what you hear on the R/T is only half of what is going on.
The only way to understand what goes on in ATC is to organise a liasion visit and sit, watch and listen to what is going on. If you're lucky an ATCO might even try to explain what happens

There is also a security issue. Besides, we don't want people watching when we cock up!

I've done the visit and it was extremely useful, but there's a limit to what you can learn in such a short time.
Watching the SBS screen while listening to the RT has been invaluable to me. Yes, 40% of the flights into a major airport don't appear on the screen. That might be a disappointment to an anorak, but to me it's actually a benefit! Working out where they are on the screen from the ATC instructions, and mentally interpolating them into the traffic flow, is an excellent way of developing a sound understanding of 3D airspace.
I assume your point about cock-ups was not serious since they will be picked up by more reliable means and by more important people than me.
