    I like a pilot who knows when not to push his/her* luck. Passengers may not like it, but sometimes diverting is a good call. Far less convenient than crashing.

        Fair play to the Aer lingus pilots who landed us in from Frankfurt last friday night in similar bucketing high winds,

      The worst thing you can get is a pilot who absolutely must get the passengers to the destination. Been a factor in many accidents.

      I’d say it would be a fun day to be plane spotting at the side of the airport though.

          Really?
          This has always intrigued me on the old airport road. There are clearly parents with their kids showing them ‘de plaaaaanes’, plus there has to be some genuine spotters there. Are you saying that the remainder are up to funny business in a Pope’s Cross sort of way?

        I was on a flight that landed in Dublin at about 9 last night. It was the most stomach churning landing I have ever experienced and reminded me of being on a boat in very choppy water. The plane was still shaking considerably after we landed and we had to wait the bones of an hour to disembark due to the conditions.

          It gets worse when flights are diverted. You may be able to land somewhere else, but a number of unexpected arrivals causes nightmares for ground handling crews.

    As my ol’ granpappy used to say “better to arrive 12 hours late in this life than 30 years early into the next.” I love pilots who put safety above schedule.

    Nothing as bad as touching down only for the place to immediately take off again for another 20 minutes of airborne hump back bridges.

    Love how everyone here is a total f**in expert on flying. I don’t have a clue if this was a difficult landing or not, but having watched this I think the pilot’s a bit of a wuss (my old boss was on on of these flights. The pilot said after they landed that he enjoyed this landing much more. It was interesting unlike what they have to do most of the time).
