Cabin pressure drop sends Brits to Athens, not Egypt
A charter flight bound for Egypt made an emergency landing in Athens when cabin pressure dropped. The flight originated in Manchester, England and carried 192 passengers. Five passengers complaining of ear pain were taken to a local hospital as a precaution, according to the Greek state television station. No other injuries were reported.
Jet2.com, the low-cost carrier operating the flight, has said through a spokesman that it was sending another plane to Athens to pick up the stranded passengers and complete the journey. When's the plane coming?
"Sometime during the night" ...
Reports have included no mention of whether the passengers received free meals, like those aboard a flight that crashed at London's City Airport last month. One can only hope that stomach contents lost are going to be replaced.
