Meanwhile, British Airways has downplayed the incident, according to MailOnline.
The airline said smoke was spotted coming from the plane due to ‘hot brakes’ at around 8 pm as the plane was at the gate.
“All customers and crew disembarked the BA820 safely. We would never operate an aircraft unless it was safe to do so,” a statement by British Airways reads.
