The pilot was considering just buying a miniture, instead he opted for a micky? Then he headed for the bathroom to down it

I wonder if the plane was circling waiting to see what to do. Should it go back should it continue. If there was a problem on board they could have definitely been told to cut the trip short. I didn't realize there were airports there. Sometimes I feel grossly uninformed.

Seems like they could have landed at Tasiilaq airport.
Although with the feed cut we can't be sure right now.
They are either still flying, landed, or (hopefully not) crashed.

The only one they could have gone to though is Nuuk airport, and they seemed well past that before it disappeared.
Here is a link to one the pictures i mentioned earlier...

You're right. Tasiilaq seems to be a heliport, not a very good place to land a jumbo jet...

Wouldn't flying higher and faster then expected affect the amount of fuel they had available to complete the trip?


Higher you go, the less fuel you burn;. when heavy you may start out at a lower altitude but you step climb when weight and winds are favorable....Fairly simple calculation with the numbers available to the crew (or) today the flight management system (FMS) does the numbers for them.

Just joined this and don't know how up to date these reports are. Is the plane still airborne? Sorry if I have missed something! I can't find it on Flightradar24 and latest tweets don't say anything more than possible hi jacking...

I do not know any more than what I have read here...However the 7500 is not a good sign although it could have been inadvertent; however not likely with the 0000 following code.

Now...... (if) there was a disturbance in the back of the airplane that looked like it could not be handled by the cabin crew.... (if) the aircraft has not reached the point of no return then it would make sense to RTB (return to base) or the closest alternate airport...

After the initial 180 the cockpit crew gets another call that says everything in now under control...another 180 turn is made to continue on to the destination....People paid allot of money to get there etc etc..

London is a flight I would assume they would have had an international relief officer on board...(just another pilot who can fly from either seat to relieve the assigned crew). However from what I have read posted in this thread it would appear not all was settled in the back of the bus, like once thought.(just a possibility)..And god forbid one of the cockpit crew members went to the back to check it out. We used to do that all the time before 9/11..

One of the scenarios we were trained in was...There is a disturbance in the back.... Captain, after the dust settles goes back to check on passengers and crew...Unknown to the captain and other crew members the real Hijackers were seated in first class...When the secure cockpit door is opened two or more B.G.s rush the door and take over the flight...Not saying this has happened only speculating (absolute worse case scenario) with the available information at hand...Hopefully they will land safely and it will be all sorted out .....

It was just a twitter post from that feed. Officially nothing has been said by the airport itself.

If they are requesting military intervention then it would be the RAF that handled that right?
