Arik London Flight Declares Emergency At Heathrow Airport by zik4ever: 11:42pm On Mar 25, 2016
Arik Air Flight W3101 to London from Lagos yesterday declared an emergency and landed safely later, 30 minutes behind schedule.
According to mailonline.com, the flight that was operated by Airbus A330-200 aircraft was scheduled to land at Heathrow in London at 18:30 but touched down at 18:57.
Official statement from the airline explained that the Airbus A330-200 developed technical problem while on ground at the Heathrow Airport and was therefore declared AOG (Aircraft on Ground), which means it was no more airworthy until the technical problem was corrected.
This has prompted the airline to reschedule its flight from London to Lagos that ought to leave London on March 24 night, to Lagos, so it would now leave on Friday morning.
However, Arik said the incident would not affect the airline’s Lagos to London flight on Friday, March 25 that was already schedule to operate by 12:45p.m.
THISDAY gathered that the flight took off from the Murtala Muhammed International Airport, Lagos for a six hours, 45 minutes flight to London and landed at Terminal 4, Heathrow.
Arik Air, the largest Nigerian carrier, has operated for 10 years without any major incident both in its domestic, regional and international flights and in September 18, 2012 it airlifted its 10 millionth passenger on a flight between Johannesburg and Lagos.

It's not much of a big deal. All airline carriers experience this at one point or the other.
There's not a 100% safety record with air travel.

My cousin and I were in the said plane. The reason for the delay was untechnical, but human. The actual cause of the delay was caused by a Ghanaian teenage girl with a big backside who complained that an old man beside her took picture of her and touched her booobiez 3 times while she was sleeping.

The man got a slapped twice that everyone in the cabin heard and it turned to a big turmoil while crusing on air. Some other people started fighting which lead the pilot to reduce the cruising speed. Some people even threatened they would jump out if the pilot didn't make an emergency landing, but the pilot claimed it was not in the Standard Airbus Navigation Policy to make an emergency landing for such reason anywhere at latitude 9degree North of the equator and beyond.

So, if you read all this and thought I was making sense. You just wasted 2 minutes of your life. I just made everything up.

actually you are wrong. they don't happen all the time and it is a big deal.

air transportation is the safest means of travel statistically. there is 1 in 29million odd of being in a plane crash. That's a lot of odds.

some airlines have a 100% safety record

You are correct.

Aviation safety is actually based on the Probabilistic Safety School of Thought or view point. The permissible risk for aviation safety is actually 1 accident per 1 million flying hours i.e. 1E-6 per flying hour. This rate is based on historical accident rates. So the failure rates (reliability and availability) of all critical equipment must meet this. In other words things like this happen but on extra rare occasions.

However, airbuses are now being improved by the Europeans, that there could be a possible review of this probability to make it even more stringent and make failure nearly impossible without human factors and/or poor management/maintenance contributing to it. In the end, what we would have to watch out for are the humans and not the machines and parts.

Aircraft on Ground(AOG) is at least better than Aircraft in air (AII), if there is anything like that. Journey mercies to all travellers. cheesy
