I was in Dublin airport today (availing of their one day before check in and bag drop) when I heard about this, quite shocking really. One of two emergency landings in Irish Airports today.
Any idea why it turned to Dublin? A diversion doesn’t always mean “emergency”.
One of the engines lost all power,
It was described on RTE news as an emergency landing, I guess they and I jumped to conclusions a bit😄.
Yeah that’s an emergency indeed ;)
I wish it went to Belfast cause Belfast was closer
@Belfast_spotter Belfast Intl. also has a slightly longer runway, I guess it’s because Dublin has better emergency services and possibly because it would be easier for the passengers and/or to find accommodation.
