|Cabin crew cause panic on Malmö Aviation flight|
|Wednesday, 11 July 2012 17:58|
The smoke coming from the Malmö Aviation flight from Malmö Sturup to Palma de Mallorca was nothing more than a blown fuse on inflight TV, but it got passengers and crew panicking.
The crew, in tears, announced there is a 'serious problem' and asked passengers to adopt the emergency 'brace' position.
The plane landed with no serious damage to the aircraft or the passengers, but passengers received no explanation as to what happened. Newspaper Metro says the crew just 'sat on a bench and cried'.
Metro also quoted a 23-year-old passenger, Mattias Sonngard, saying: "It was total panic. People screamed that they didn't want to die. The man in the seat behind me fainted and got help with some oxygen from another passenger.
"All we knew was that the plane had been given permission for an emergency landing. It later emerged that the pilots knew the plane was fine and the smoke was from a broken TV, but noone told us this."
Cabin crew panicking and crying during an emergency is a 'human thing to do'. Agree/Disagree? Leave a comment.
