    That being said: looks like plain old overfill.

    Nothing in FlightGlobal or AvWeek daily digest, so it must be a simple overfill – a common occurrence.
    My most bizarre fueling experience was at your good old SLC many years ago. I was departing on a Frontier DC-9, we taxied out to the runway hold, whereupon they turned the plane around and started back to the terminal. Seems the ground crew forgot to fuel-up the a/c and the flight crew sort of overlooked the fuel load until moments before entering the runway for take off. Did not inspire confidence.

    I’d still fly on it–wasn’t there a training manual about pilots being trained to “not use the rudder,” with the tailfin popping off and such?

    The most amazing thing, however, is that the article fails to spell “Norwegian” right even once!

    The only time it’s right is in the copy pasta.
