Ethiopian 787 Emergency Landing in Dublin

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.
