This is Emirates first major incident since inception, isn't it?

 

EK's FB is fast. Already in grey logo.

 

Per my EK spies:

 

Crew hebat dapat selamatkan semua considering this flight is a 2 class B77W long night-turnaround Indian flight.

Per my EK spies:

 

They have a very well oiled machine and contingency plans in place. I actually noticed the change of FB logo first. Even the people commenting on their page were clueless about that. Only a short while after that did the news came flooding in. Just a few minutes ago the man himself, His Highness Sheikh Ahmed Bin Saeed Al Maktoum posted a video statement through the Emirates FB page. And this is the latest media statement from them

 

 

Emirates Media Statement 5:

11 - UAE

2 - Malaysia
2 - Thailand
1 - Croatia
1 - Egypt
1 - Bosnia & Herzegovina
1 - Lebanon
1 - Philippines
1 - South Africa
1 - Switzerland
1 - Tunisia

The Boeing 777 aircraft, departed at 10.19am from Trivandrum International Airport and was scheduled to land at 12.50pm at Dubai International Airport.

Won't be surprised to see Boeing looking into the 777's go-around performance in 49c heat.

Two days after EK521, details remain sketchy what actually happened. Both blackboxes have been discovered.

 

Meanwhile. EK took delivery of two brand new B77W A6-EPO and A6-EPO on 28th and 29th July 2016 respectively. With one aircraft down, shouldn't be a big issue for EK.

I think Julius meant it to be:

 

A6-EPO Boeing 777-31H(ER) MSN 42334 LN 1415

 

A6-EPP Boeing 777-31H(ER) MSN 42335 LN 1418

Thank you flee for the correction. Sorry Albert for the typo.

 

DXB is back to normal operation with dual runway in use.

Possibly a failed go-around, due to windshear.

The images are somewhat an eerie reminder of the ill fated SQ6 that crashed in TPE
