Singapore Airlines flight SQ308 from Singapore to London hit some rough air last week, resulting in a loss of altitude that sent coffee up to the ceiling and meals all over the cabin.
The turbulence that quickly followed as “like being in an elevator with a cut cable or free-falling from some amusement park ride.” Passengers said the flight attendants quickly came through the cabin to check for injuries and then began cleaning up the mess. The flight continued as normal for the next 10 hours, but the flight was met at Heathrow by paramedics. The passengers were given boxes of chocolates as they deplaned.
Singapore Airlines told Australia News, “Eleven passengers and one crew member sustained minor injuries when the aircraft experienced a sudden loss of altitude and were attended to by medical personnel on arrival at Heathrow Airport. Seat-belt signs were on at the time and meal services had already been suspended.”
Of course, turbulence occurs on countless commercial flights each day, though Singapore’s chocolate response is another example of their great service. Check out the full story here.
