Only 20 on a plane that can carry 126... That flight need to be significantly downgraded at least to a CRJ even a CRJ200!

What is really intersting besides the low PAX count, is the fact that it took off from LaGuardia, just like the US Airways Flight 1549, and they are building the new garbage transfer station adjacent to the Airport, BUT IT IS MODERN AND CLOSED IN AND WON'T ATTRACT BIRDS.
Yea, right
I agree with Mr.Wayne, La Guardia is definitely a problem with birds, but the problem is NY is so populated and everyone cares about the stink of a garbage dump except for birds and airports. So they need to do something and fast, and it doesn't entail expanding it.

a local resident, was working in his backyard when he heard what he described as a “loud bang.” “My wife thought it was an afterburner,” he said via Twitter.

Holy damn people are dumb. lol

Mike: what do you expect when it makes National Headlines when Michelle's plane has to make a simple go around. Everybody did their jobs as they were supposed to but the non flying public thinks we live in a perfect world. As Richard said earlier, well trained crews, stuff happens, they landed the plane. Sully put his in the Hudson. This captain was able to make JFK just fine. What's the problem?

@Wayne, the difference between the Delta flight and US Airways Flight 1549 is that the Delta flight only lost ONE engine, enabling it to continue flying, not BOTH like Flight 1549. Capt Sully's aircraft was effectively turned into a glider amongst all of the buildings in NYC. Had the Delta pilot lost both engines like Capt Sully, the result may have been the same......or worse...

Didn't you understand that she was referring to the afterburner of her oven (LOL)

This is what well trained crews do. They Fly the airplane, they assess the situation, then take appropriate action. Seems to work, and doesn't require a huge news breaking response.

I had 1549 flashbacks reading this. Glad all the PAX and pilots made it :)

Airbus loves them NY birds.

is there a way we can blame Airbus for repeatedly ingesting birds?

@ Markus Pradel, indeed Airbus can be sued over the grounds that you mention which is further aggravated because the hunting season is not opened yet LOL
