Or stupid mistake from cabin crew. When I was still working at Citybird soo long ago, we had a 737-800 technical somewhere in Egypt with a slide deployed because the cabin crew forgot to disarm the slide before opening the door.

Cheers,

How do you forget such a thing? On all flights I've ever been on, this action is explicitly requested and confirmed to have been performed.

also a white 'slide' indicator will come on at the door when the slide is not disarmed. if you don't notice this, you are getting blind. opening the door from the outside would disarm the slide, so door has been opened from the inside. as for training, this would be strange, because these are things which aren't done in view of public.

A pity this did not happen to an Irish 737 at Charleroi ... it would have been much more fun !
Not a poor 5 comments, and mild ones at that - but at least 5 pages, and not like "it can happen to everyone" !
IF IT AIN'T BOEING, I'M NOT GOING.

Human Error is possible.
Certainly nowadays with pairings from hell. we tend to work:
EARLY-LATE-LATE-EARLY-LATE-NIGHT-WEEKEND
or whatever horrible combination you could come up with concerning changing biorhythm, we do it. And to the effect we are having more people making errors, due to fatigue... funny enough the fatigue system that checks the pairings never seems to find a (legal) problem with them... maybe it's time to change the legal limits....?
What do you prefer, a well rested crew member, or an exhausted one....

(in the US they are finally getting this...)
