I saw this on the evening news.  Engine failed, smoke entered the cabin, my guess would be through a cabin environment control bleed.  It looks like the crew did a good job with keeping the passengers informed and calm.  Nice landing, especially considering it was done on one engine.  Conclusion:  things can and do go wrong, crews making the right decisions and doing it quickly, then executing correct procedures can make the difference between a safe ending to the event versus a disaster.

Anyone recognise where it landed? Was not sure if that was Perth,WA.

Did you notice the decent angle after the notification? He must have had to drop quickly. Great job.

I read an article that described the smoke in the cabin as being so thick that "you were unable to see the passenger sitting next to you." Then I saw the video...

My bad. I was getting mixed up with Jetstar with whom I flew Singapore-Perth, and Jetblue.

 

Thanks for the clarification anyway.
