The commander advised air traffic control that the plane was being operated by one pilot, and together with the cabin crew managed to perform a safe single pilot landing of the Airbus A319-111.
The day before, the co-pilot and commander had flown from Glasgow to Palma de Mallorca and back, and upon approaching the landing strip to the resort city's airport, a change in wind displaced the aircraft, during which the commander took over and executed a go-around. ■
