Reply To: BA 777 Vegas-Gatwick on fire – passengers safe

Back to Forum


I have just called BAEC to register my concerns about pax taking baggage with them in exiting the plane: this delays evacuation, could potentially damage the emergency escape chutes and is a flagrant breach of the instructions given to all passengers during the pre-flight boarding process. Consequently, I have urged BA to identify those passengers who ignored lawfully given instructions and ensure that they are subject to criminal sanctions because of the potential endangerment of other passengers. An example has to be made.

Can I ask that anyone else who is a BAEC member, and who takes onboard safety seriously, to do likewise?
