Flight Diverts Following Suicide Attempt By Crew Member


According to the Sun, a British Airways plane was diverted after a member of airline staff tried to kill himself at 38,000ft. The cabin crew worker is understood to have slit his wrists in a cabin toilet on BA Flight 282 from Los Angeles to London.


There was horror on board the giant Airbus 380 when staff made the grisly discovery of their colleague.


It is not known what he used to cut himself. He was found slumped on the toilet seat after executive passengers noticed the cubicle had been locked for a long time.


Emergency medical help was given to the off-duty steward and the plane diverted to Iceland.


One British Airways worker told The Sun: “This was a terrible incident, everyone was upset.


“There was blood and tears. It was truly shocking.”


The plane was full of Hollywood executives headed for the Cannes Film Festival.


Stan Rosenfield, a publicist whose clients include George Clooney, told how one of the toilets was locked for ages.


He said: “Earlier, I remember going to the bathroom and it said occupied.


“I didn't feel like going to another section. A little while later, the same thing happened, so I just went to another bathroom.


"Then there were a series of beeps — I've never heard anything like it. All the flight attendants converged in the galley where the bathroom was and drew the curtain."


The aircraft took off 20 minutes late from California at 3:50pm local time (11:50pm GMT) on Monday and was due to land at London Heathrow at 10am Tuesday.


The Airbus A388 eventually landed in the Icelandic capital Reykjavik at 7:44am and the BA worker was immediately rushed to hospital.

Wow! Stunning! Hilton seems to be taking Africa by storm. Just a couple of years back, they opened the first ever in Eswatini.

Good location astounding but the staffs are rude and they make me wait so long for the service. They charge me more than what is on the website and did not refund me the manager is not helping with the issue

I am really tempted to book the next ethiopian airlines ticket and relive your journey. The pictures shared with the post also reflect that you truly enjoyed the travel. Great post! I also like the fact that you have covered nuances about the food and entertainment service through the pictures. It helps people know what to expect on their travel by this airline.
