Finnair seems to be doing refuelling stops in Bordeaux or Lisbon for flights out of Lanzarote. With its 2400m runway, the Lanzarote-Helsinki flights with Finnair's A321 (IAE engines) is at the limits of it's range (depending on payload and prevailing winds). Sometimes it is non-stop, sometimes it is with an half an hour technical stop at LIS or BOD.

Travellers were informed by airport staff in Brest that another plane had been dispatched from Stansted to continue their journey to Faro.

A passenger initially reported there was a fire outside the aircraft, then corrected the fire was inside the aircraft.
