I’ve only ever been in one landing where there was clapping.
I think it was mostly just relief for those of us who hadn’t been screaming on the final approach that started it.
Even the cabin crew joined in which I took to mean that I could stop being stoic for a moment and add my own contribution.Posted 10 months agofreeagentMember
I flew home to London from Aberdeen a few years back, on an Easyjet flight full of Scottish football fans travelling to an away game.
The flight was awful, high winds and lots of turbulence.
When we landed the whole plane started clapping, and most of the footy lads broke into a rendition of Spandau Ballets ‘Gold’
I’ve got no issue with people clapping when planes land – surely we have bigger things to worry about than this??Posted 10 months agoflanagajMember

If the odds of reaching your destination were really slim then I could understand it, but given it’s the safest form of transport …
Maybe I’ll start clapping the next time a taxi driver gets me to my destination.Posted 10 months agopaulosoxoSubscriber
I flew with TAP air last week and it was bonkers. Both pilots were out of the cockpit together at one point, but they did leave the door open, so it was fine. I also had a little plastic glass of Pepsi poured from a 2 litre bottle and little drop of red wine too but you couldn’t actually order or buy a drink.
The crew left the seatbelt signs on for most of the flight, ignored the call button of the fella in front of me, and in the end, everyone who wanted a tinkle just got up and used the loo, seatbelt sign still on, and the crew made no fuss about it.
The seatbelt thing must have been universal, as it was on all the way back too.Posted 10 months ago
