Jet Airways flight from Riyadh to Mumbai that aborted takeoff last week at the Riyadh airport was not even on the runway when the incident took place, Saudi officials said today.

The flight, a Boeing 737 aircraft carrying 141 passengers and seven crew members, attempted taking off on a taxiway that ran parallel to the runway, the Saudi Aviation Investigation Bureau (AIB) has said in a new statement. A taxiway is a pathway that links terminals, parking bays, runways and other facilities at an airport.

[post to be read to the sighing silence of eyes rolling up] This dear petro-heads is the motor car equivalent of driving on the pavement thinking it is the main road.

But then our national characteristic is to walk on the road thinking it's the pavement!

While the Goa Incident report which the original poster who was travelling on the flight and has shared here has not yet made to the DGCA website, yet another Jet Airways scary "incident" on a B777 departing London Heathrow for Mumbai in August 2016 has just been put up on the DGCA website.

Conclusion - Crew Error - As simple as that !

Are India's airlines growing too fast for its own good?
