“The aircraft landed safely, and customers disembarked using steps after a technical issue on the taxiway,” they added.

“The safety and security of our customers and crew are always our top priority.”

A spokesperson for British Airways said a technical issue occurred after the flight landed, the Huffington Post reported.

In a related incident, G-EUPM became stuck on a taxiway at Manchester Int’l Airport after the nose wheel became stuck at a 90 degree angle.
