  1. It is sad that an aircraft caught fire and I am sure the aircraft has been insured for all types of calamities.

    However, a major disaster is averted and, thanks God, all the passengers are safe and hopefully there is no loss of baggage. This is the most important thing. For the crew and passengers this must have been quite a fearful and nerve-racking experience.
