On 19 October 2012 a Jet 2 Boeing 737 headed for Alicante from Glasgow airport was forced to make a high speed emergency stop during takeoff due to smoke in the cabin. During a panicked evacuation, a total of 20 passengers were injured, 6 of whom attended hospital. This was the second of three incidents in October 2012 involving reports of smoke in the cabins of Boeing aircraft. Irwin Mitchell is representing passengers injured in all 3 incidents. Cabin smoke can be dangerous when inhaled, and it is therefore important to determine what the cause was to improve flight safety. Irwin Mitchell is investigating the cause of this accident, as well as questioning the airline’s handling of the evacuation.
