How can RYR be 'the safest airline in the world' when the management advise the Captain not to evacuate in the future because the warning turned out to be spurious?

News also coming in that a call centre operation has been inundated.

That is the 'no win no fee' legal helpline

Don't tell me the UK is as bad as the USA when it comes to lawsuits?

nice video of the evacuation from the BBC

BBC News - Plane evacuated at Glasgow Airport
The passenger who filmed that is an idiot. Why get so close to the slide? Just because you wanted to get your "YouTube moment", you get in the way. Nice one

<<We were careering up the runway and smoke started belting out of all the air vents with a smouldering smell. >>

Presumably a professional eye witness? I'm familiar with most take-off techniques but "careering" is new on me...

It's from the same flying school that teaches you to "plummet" next to a primary school

Well nobody knows the real cause of this incident yet, but in view of previous similar incidents surely (shirley?) a first step would be a basic re-design of passenger aircraft cabin air circulation?
In other words stop using engine bleed air for this purpose.

good idea but then you're going to need another compressor if you take it from outside = more weight = less $$$$$$$$

Glasgow Airport - JET 2 smoake in cockpit - emergency services called

I think Mr Boeing disagrees with the last poster, as that is exactly how the 787 is pressurised.

indeed as people said I was thinking de-iceing fluid, it can cause smoke in the cabin,,,, but at 9deg I guess not the case

after building thousands of others that use bleed air - sounds like its beginning to sink in that it may not be a brilliant idea then

Due to the fuel shortage at Glasgow, airlines were tankering fuel into Glasgow. It was possible the wing was cold soaked and they may of had to de-ice.

Quote of the day:

"One or two passengers, including myself, had our reading light on and when I looked up to the lamps and the ceiling, I could actually see smoke swirling around and I thought, oops, there's something not right here."
