Did you poorly phrase that or do you truly think the OCC makes that call?

The crew reported that they were expecting to vacate the runway normally, but ended up in the grass.
There was an emergency evacuation, but no indication of an immediate hazard to the pax on the plane.

surely those could be answered by you?

Been there; itís not as straightforward as I suggested. Of course final decision is with the crew. OCC doesnít have all the info. EWR is just short on real estateó that was my point. All in all a good outcome

While it quickly became obvious there wasn't a fire, the actions the crew took properly ignored any consideration of inconvenience to flight ops at EWR. I'm surprised by the comments criticizing the their decisions.

also; the brake pins look fine to me; walk around complete..

More inline with the way it works and a far cry from your original post.

Is there a correlation between a[n] hydraulic leak and a pair of wheels that refuse to turn?

I know itís blatant thread drift but it is amazing to have a first hand account from someone who was actually onboard an aircraft that suffered a very serious accident.

Do you mind me asking how it affected your confidence in air travel afterwards?

Did it scar you forever or was it a case of Ďlightning doesnít strike twice in the same placeí?!

Did you forgive the crew (Captain) for what appeared to be a pretty poorly handled emergency?

Of course I understand if you donít wish to discuss it.
