BA emergency landing - fuller report now expected

The report has made the following safety recommendation and a fuller report is expected later in the year:

"It is recommended that Airbus formally notifies operators of A320-family aircraft of the fan cowl door loss event on A319 G-EUOE on 24 May 2013, and reiterates the importance of verifying that the fan cowl doors are latched prior to flight by visually checking the position of the latches."
