Well pee, any YouTube shots of this scrum? Don't you just despise all that rushing?

I'd imagine it probably reinforces ones insurance claim if one somehow manages to hurt oneself on the escape slide and no doubt one or two did so.

Aircraft was EI-ENB, which was a fairly new machine. Here's a report from the Aviation Herald:

Accident: Ryanair B738 at Kerry on Dec 21st 2010, evacuation injures 2

Residual fluid from previous deicing entering the APU perhaps?

Without wishing to prejudge. . . . last thing one should do on a Ryanair thread seems at the outset perhaps a bit keen initiating an evacuation via slides for some fumes in the cockpit / or indeed cabin. Smoke or fire hell yes, but fumes

How many evacuations have Ryanair had over the last few years?

How about with all this grit and sand lying on the runway...short as Kerry is there can be a tendency to be over -exuberant with the Thrust reversers including late stowage and didn't this happen to Ryanair a few years ago in Torp??. Point me to Paddy Power I need odds on this one

I am not the worlds biggest fan of Ryanair by a long way but this thread is turning into another anti-Ryanair rant and this is only post number eight!

Insted of the "evacuation in error" that you all seem to be pointing to have any of you considered that the fumes were an electrical problem? or an air conditioning problem?..................... I only offer these as an alternative to the hints of a Ryanair cock up above, simply because at this stage I don't have a clue what sorce the smoke/fumes came from and nor do any of the posters above.

Like me you will all have to wait for the authoritys to investigate and report, but by then it will be old news and we can all move on to the next anti-Ryanair story.

Just for the record I to think that MOL is the worst thing to happen to aviation in the last thirty years but that is no reason to start slagging his pilots with not a shred of evidence.

The worst thing to happen to aviation in the last thirty years is that Bin Laden character ..... MOL comes second place but I stand to be corrected!

It was a STN plane that had the incident with a very experienced and popular training CP in LHS. It was apparently the last day at work for the poor unfortunate purser. I don't think it was anything like the JetBlue incident. Electrical smell is word is crewroom. Air accidents people on site with the aircraft.

Bin Laden is the worst thing to happen to the world with his perverted form of thinking that tricks the young, uneducated and vunerable to commiting acts of terror for him.

MOL is just a selfish business man with no morals what so ever, he is an aviation problem, the Bin Laden problem is much wider than aviation.

How much were the SLF charged to use the emergency slides rather than waiting for steps to arrive?
Seasons greetings everyone

The Ryanair jokes weren't funny 10 years ago, they are just tedious, predictable and boring now.

The smoke/fumes could have come from residue from a runway de-icing procedure. A lot of salt/grit powdery residue is present on the runway surface which can be ingested into the aircraft bleed air system on landing when reverse thrust is initiated.

.....fume/smoke in cabin: switch off packs and wait a bit. see what is going on with the fume in the cabin. its imho better than rush into a obviously not required evac.

one is airmanship and experience the other one is just blindfold rush into proecedures - like a monkey
- pay peanuts treat your crews like monkeys as and that is what you get then..
anyway let's wait and see for the outcome then, if there is any

Airbus you have no idea what actually happened, so why don't you just shut your hole until you do?

Can't vouch for the reliability of the report but "Black smoke" mentioned...

Air passengers evacuated after smoke fills cabin - National News, Frontpage - Independent.ie

Passenger Richard Hartnett said there was "panic" on board when passengers saw "black smoke" coming from the cockpit. He said people fled the scene in terror after firemen told them to "keep running".

"The whole cabin filled up with a fog and it felt like five minutes had passed before anyone did anything," Mr Hartnett told the Irish Independent.

It's unfortunate that any topic in any way related to RYR instantly gets sabotaged with the type of drivel seen above. There's little to say without knowing the facts, but that doesn't seem to some who jump straight in guns blazing.

Latest reports of black smoke in the cabin would point to this evacuation not being an unneccesary one, and I wouldn't expect an experienced LTC to pop the chutes lightly.

As for the 'humour', it's pretty stale by now and not very constructive on a serious thread. In fact, perhaps the mods could sticky a new thread in which they can just dump all that crap.
