Incident at ZRH Airport Last Week (15.03)

A "close encounter" between two departing Swiss planes last Tuesday.

Two Swiss A320 given simultaneous takeoff clearance on runways 28 and 16 (the two runways cross). One plane was forced to brake heavily and stopped just before the intersection with hot brakes.

I'm guessing it would have been a bit nerve wracking for those on board the Madrid flight (and those on the Moscow flight that could see the Madrid plane).

Was the three-hour delay to cool down the brakes or for passengers to get their bags and change their underwear?
