No, it did not skid and it was not on a runway but the BBC did accurately identify Heathrow.

Good grief. Don't give even more air-time to these air-heads.

The French authorities should be ashamed of themselves. Unfortunately from a safety perspective, they won't be: they are French.

A330 Comparison

Exactly. The main point of legitimate comparison between the two accidents is they both involved Airbuses. That's it until the investigation into the A320 crash is concluded.

Remember the A330 accident at Toulouse...?

What? Are you seriously suggesting there is any logical reason to draw even the most tenuous of comparisons between the A330 test-flight accident and this A320 crash? How irresponsible.

Unfit for Purpose

The A380 is not a "new" aircraft... It's a hugely late and over-budget white elephant that is just "unift for purpose". That's what happens when you let ego get in the way of common sense.

"It's called customer service and it's perfectly safe." Ridiculous comment. This was neither safe nor sensible, especially in an aircraft like the A340.
