British Airways B744, medical emergency times 4.

A British Airways Boeing 747-400, registration G-CIVL performing flight BA-85 from London Heathrow,EN (UK) to Vancouver,BC (Canada), was on approach to Vancouver about 55nm from the airport, when the crew reported that three passengers had become seriously ill and a fourth passenger became unconscious. The airport alerted the Health Canada Quarantaine Station, three medical units and the fire department responded. The airplane landed safely 13 minutes later and taxied to the gate, where medical services received one unconscious and three vomiting passengers. All passengers and crew were kept in the aircraft for some time.

The aircraft was able to depart for the return flight BA-84 with a delay of 2 hours.

Wow. That is a lot of people to get sick on an airplane. Maybe they got sick on some food???

Long flight…3 passengers vomiting, one unconscious? sounds like a good ole fashioned game of quarters broke out on board.

For some reason, I’m reminded of the movie “Airplane”.

The should ask if they all had the fish for dinner. :smiley:

Ah yes, I remember, I had the lasagna.

I wonder if all four pax were travelling together…

They travelled together on the way to the hospital I bet. Glad to see you’re still around and survived your comment on the “interior of Playboy’s DC-9”.

I haven’t been banned for any such transgressions (yet). I do push the envelope sometimes, but always manage to cheat death. I have prompted the locking of one or two threads in my time. Having reviewed the game film, perhaps posting my comment would’ve been better served in the Banter Thread…

It didn’t bother me, but then again, my speech can be rather colorful at times too. Water under the bridge, IMO - you just said what everyone else was thinking. And “transgressions”, huh? That word really is taking off (pun intended)!
