Singapore Airlines’ meals take flight during bumpy ride

Passengers weren’t the only thing up in the air during a recent Singapore Airlines flight to London Heathrow as heavy turbulence caused customers’ meals to fly around the cabin. The aircraft hit turbulence just after breakfast was served on-board, causing passengers’ meals to be thrown about the cabin.

Coffee cups and cutlery were tossed about the cabin during the bumpy flight, as well as a few passengers, according to Singapore Airlines customers on-board the messy flight. "Singapore Airlines flight SQ308 experienced moderate to severe turbulence en route from Singapore to London on 26 May," commented Nicholas Ionides, airline spokesman.

"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," he added.

Photos have emerged of the damage caused on the flight on the Instagram account of one of the passengers onboard the flight. Images show a coffee stain on the ceiling of the cabin, caused by a coffee cup which was thrown in the air and meal trays scattered across the cabin aisles. “I remember thinking that that his tone was a bit odd,” Alan Cross, who was on the flight, told ABC News.

“The cabin crew was amazing in the aftermath, as were fellow passengers who helped everyone around them then in a calm and efficient clean-up,” he added. “And the chocolates were a nice touch from the airline. That’s why Singapore will remain my favourite carrier in the world.”
