Mushrooms cause mid-air emergency
In the time straight after an air disaster such as the Spanish air crash last week that killed 153 passengers flyers of a nervous dispostion feel more nervous and even seasoned flyers might have some underlying fears so the last thing you want is a mid-air emergency especially when its caused by mushroom soup! For Ryanair the mushroom incident was one of two mid-air emergencies it had and Thomas Cook and Thompsons also had emergencies. Not a week for those with fear of flying!
A Ryanair holiday jet was forced to make an emergency landing after a jar of mushroom soup leaked from an overhead locker onto a passenger causing a freak allergic reaction.
The incident, on a flight from Budapest to Dublin, came as staff from the airline were dealing with an emergency on another flight which was forced to land in France after a sudden loss of cabin pressure at 37,000ft.
It emerged on Wednesday that staff at the budget carrier, which has never had an accident, had to activate emergency procedures almost simultaneously in the two mid-air dramas.
The twin incidents came as British holidaymakers were caught up in a series of other mid-air alerts at a time of nervousness for flyers, less than a week after a Spanair aircraft crashed in Madrid killing 153 people.
