“Close call” Airbus A320 landing at Hamburg RWY 23 ….The pressure for the darn ON TIME PERFORMANCE combined with the lack of positive judgement and/or poor preventive guidance from dispatch/ATC …JAA syllabus and in house flight training should be closely revaluated in order to avoid future tragedies.
Notes from a European Airbus Driver;

Wind was 290/33 gusts to 49 (time ~ 13:55)
happened on flight LH 044 (D-AIQP) a A320 from MUC
runway for landing 23 LOC-DME (ATIS gave no other option)
after g/a, pilots elected runway 33 also LOC-DME approach and landed safely…

Airbus recommeded limits;
T/O 29 kts gusting 38 kts
Ldg: 33 kts gusting 38 kts

for non-contaminated runways – goes down for flooded runways, snow, ice etc.

The crosswind limit is defined as the crosswind at which no pilot input is required in yaw until the nosewheel is down in a normal landing (same for any commercial jet). Yes you can land with more of a crosswind if you are a good pilot but you are exceeding the certified limit and will be hung in any aaib investigation that arises.
