Friday’s BA762 from LHR to Oslo made an emergency landing back at LHR. Both engines on the A319 having lost part of their casings, one engine on fire. Fortunately all passengers exited safely, however both LHR runways were closed for up to 2 hours, the southern runway for longer.
We await the findings of the AIIB, though experts are currently at odds as to the likely cause.
Meanwhile BA is denying compensation resulting from the many cancellations and delays
as it deemed the cause to be “extraordinary circumstances”. One would expect a class action being taken through to the European courts to clarify the situation. However it could well be influenced by the outcome of the investigation.
