Does The Sun not have anyone there who knows anything about aviation? It makes us wonder just how accurate are any other stories in any other field;... medicine, law enforcement, politics, science, etc.

AC864 uses A333s, the story is wrong.

If you look at the picture that is part of the story, it is clearly not a 777. All the way at the bottom they say it was a A330 which is more plausible based on the picture.
