Well, it's pretty clear, isn't it?

Has anyone thought to source the FACTS of this post?
I have no clue, no axe to grind.

Isnít the first thing to do is shut down , carry out emergency drills to fight fire using engine or APU fire extinguishing systems as required and then evacuate the passengers?
Simple huh?

Many assumptions for a critical situation that may be or may not be. A jumpseater, a fire alarm not triggering in cockpit, a ground staff telling him there wasnít a fire (or the other way around). I personally donít judge this kind of situations with my butt sitting on the couch. Itís quite easy to blame when your life and others are not at risk under your responsibility. Firefighters were advised by the captain btw.

It would definitely not suit this forum overall, but a LIKE button would have surely been pressed in this case.

Birmingham is hosting the Commonwealth Games, starting in a few days. Do keep up.

Where I work the FO is explicitly given the duty of coordinating evacuation from the outside and directing the passengers upwind of the fire, away from the flames, etc while the FAís and CA make sure the plane is evacuated and coordinate from the inside.

Why do I feel like the Sun would blast a FO for simply doing the job the company and CA told him to do? Thereís also plenty of reasons for a 4 bar CA to be in the right seat, LCA duties or a airline that allows/forces CAís to fly trips as a FO.

Bottom line, inappropriate to roast someone with the word of a few drunk Brits on holiday and a zoomed out picture or two.
