Just a routine emergency. Outstanding Job. Enjoy the extra overnight in Vegas chaps.

Oh, you know. Just a massive jet engine bursting into flames right below several thousand pounds of fuel. No biggie.

It better not be if you're a professional pilot. Rejected takeoffs, for numerous reasons, are one the most trained emergencies. Including evacuations. Nothing short of perfect is considered acceptable performance. This is why we expect to be well paid.

Emergencies are not. Routine.

However, in this case, it was handled as if it was routine.

Yes, it was handled as if it were routine, the sign of a pro. However, things well executed, i.e. things requiring technical training, rehearsal, and proficiency........pilot, flight attendant, a virtuoso on the piano, a top level golfer, etc., appear routine and easy to do to the casual observer. The responsibilities and consequences, however, are orders of magnitude different among the groups.

Just another day at the office for KLAS Twr! And I wish someone would slap the media for sensationalizing this event. If the events unfolded like they said (10 min. before fire crews got there!?) Hell in 10 min this WOULD'VE BEEN a disaster! Well done by all!

Don't know if I would call it routine, but the pilots and flight crew did a terrific job. It's always good to see en emergency well handled.

I'm curious if the aircraft has Rolls Royce engines. The BA 777 that crash landed short of the runway at Gatwick several years ago had Rolls Royce engines which, if I recall correctly, were deemed the cause of that incident.

Actually the cause was the fuel lines were iced up and as a result were blocking the flow. Two different things here.

Don´t draw silly conclusions, firstly the Vegas BA 777 was powered by GE engines whereas the BA belly landing at Heathrow had RR engines that froze due to fuel lines freezing.

General Electric GE90-85B's apparently

Actually it happened on Final to Heathrow and the accident was attributed to icing

Ice crystals in the fuel were blamed as the cause of the accident, clogging the fuel-oil heat exchanger (FOHE) of each engine. This restricted fuel flow to the engines when thrust was demanded during the final approach to Heathrow. Boeing identified the problem as specific to the Rolls-Royce engine fuel-oil heat exchangers, and Rolls-Royce subsequently developed a modification to its FOHE; the European Aviation Safety Agency (EASA) mandated that all affected aircraft were to be fitted with the modification before 1 January 2011. Boeing 777 aircraft powered by General Electric or Pratt & Whitney engines were not affected by the problem.

And the filters on both sides froze up at exactly the same time causing both engines to quit at the same exact moment.
