From Babak Taghvaee (whose Twitter account is partially blocked after he correctly reported that Iran shot down PS752):

135 lucky pax and crew, and an M83 airframe available for parting out, by the looks of it...

Lucky indeed - and lucky to find a taxi without going through airport controls - lucky to have their hand baggage conveniently with them...

Interesting that no slides are deployed on this one, and that the arrival is managed as a "disembarcation" rather than an evacuation.

As they say, any landing you can walk away from with your hand luggage is a good landing

Not even a need for a set of stairs - efficiency indeed.

BBC reports that main gear not present and correct during the landing - but it's not clear if that was prior to touchdown or as a result of it. State TV says they touched down long...

Both front slides activated but it looks like L1 has either not fully deployed or been punctured - not sure it would have been steep enough to slide down anyway!! And kudos to flight attendant supervising evacuation at L1, screaming for PAX to get clear - well done girl!! I might not want to fly with your airline, but happy to fly with you looking after me
