AAL2045 Evacuation at KSFO
« on: July 12, 2024, 05:02:07 PM »
Earlier today, AAL2045 was just about to depart from KSFO enroute to KMIA when the aircraft was evacuated via the slides due to smoke in the cabin.  It appears the aircraft was still on the ramp when this occurred.  So far no injuries have been reported.

Apparently a laptop battery in a passengers bag began to smoke prompting the evacuation...
