Airline thanks fliers for patience in turtle delay: 'They aren't the fastest-moving creatures'

Airline thanks fliers for patience in turtle delay: 'They aren't the fastest-moving creatures' Jetstar Airways had the cutest reason for a flight delay: A small turtle was crossing the tarmac. Suffice it to say, he took things slow and steady. A flight Thursday from Australia's Gold Coast to Adelaide was delayed for four minutes after First Officer James Fuller noticed a turtle on the tarmac, where his plane had just begun taxiing for departure. "They aren’t the fastest-moving creatures," he told USA TODAY in a statement. "I’ve seen rabbits on the runway before, but in my four years flying with Jetstar, I’ve never seen a turtle on the tarmac.

A Delta plane’s engine failed and glowed orange mid-flight, as horrified passengers watched

A Delta plane’s engine failed and glowed orange mid-flight, as horrified passengers watched That sight was captured amid panic and potential final goodbye texts among the 148 passengers on a Delta flight from Atlanta to Baltimore on Monday, when the engine failure prompted an emergency landing in Raleigh. Some passengers reported hearing a loud noise.

Delta Air Lines Inc. (DAL) on Thursday, Oct. 11, 2018, reported third-quarter earnings of $1.31 billion.

Chloe Haines, 25, sparked hijack fears 45 minutes into the flight from Stansted to Turkey and was accused of trying to open one of the doors mid-flight.

Witnesses said she sent one flight attendant 'flying across the plane' before she was restrained by passengers and was arrested by police when the flight landed back at the airport.

Mom gets apology from Sun Country Airlines after she had to pay $75 to sit with her toddler

Mom gets apology from Sun Country Airlines after she had to pay $75 to sit with her toddler Sun Country Airlines apologized to a mother who claims the airline wouldn't let her sit next to her toddler unless she paid extra money.

The incident saw two RAF Typhoon fighters intercept the aircraft over Essex and guide it back to Stansted, with the jets creating a sonic boom that could be heard for miles around.

Now, Jet2 has confirmed today it has billed the Costa Express worker for £85,000 for the 'extremely disruptive behaviour' and said she 'must face up to the consequences of her actions', while also handing her a lifetime ban.

Chief executive Steve Heapy said: 'Miss Haines' behaviour was one of the most serious cases of disruptive passenger behaviour that we have experienced.

'She must now face up to the consequences of her actions, and we will vigorously pursue to recover the costs that we incurred as a result of this divert, as we do with all disruptive passengers.

'As a family-friendly airline, we take an absolutely zero-tolerance approach to disruptive behaviour, and we hope that this sobering incident, with its very serious consequences, provides a stark warning to others who think that they can behave in this fashion.'

Haines, of Maidenhead, Berkshire was arrested on suspicion of assault and endangering an aircraft and Mr Heapy confirmed Jet2 was assisting police with inquiries.

She has been an operations assistant at Costa Express since 2017 and went to Newland Girls' School in Maidenhead.

It was previously revealed she had been banned from the roads for 28 months for drink-driving just two weeks before the incident.

How Jet2 are able to bill 'disruptive passenger' for £85,000

Jet2 have today confirmed they are billing passenger Chloe Haines for £85,000 (NZD 157,000) for her 'extremely disruptive behaviour' on a flight last month.

They have invoiced her for the amount, which covers the costs incurred through wasted fuel, diversions and delays after the flight from Stansted to Turkey had to turn around and was escorted back to the airport by two RAF Typhoons.

If Haines does not pay the money, Jet2 may pursue the claim through the civil courts, although the airline has not confirmed whether it will yet.

Meanwhile, Haines still faces a criminal investigation over the incident having been arrested by Essex Police.

Flight 73 pilots ignored alerts in fatal Air Niugini crash, report finds

Flight 73 pilots ignored alerts in fatal Air Niugini crash, report finds Air safety investigators find two Air Niugini pilots ignored as many as 13 alerts before their plane crashed into a lagoon in the Federated States of Micronesia. © AP: Zach Niezgodski/US Navy Investigators found the sole passenger who died in the crash wasn't wearing a seatbelt. A passenger was killed and six seriously injured when the Boeing 737 crashed into the water 460 metres short of the runway at Chuuk International Airport.

She was arrested on suspicion of assault and endangering an aircraft and was released on bail until August 21.

Police have not yet charged her with any crime but she could face defending her actions in court.

She has also had community ordered for three assaults and been fined £450 at Slough Magistrates' Court.

Speaking about the incident, witness Steven Brown, from Romford, London, told the Sun: 'She bolted to the front of the plane and threw one stewardess from one side of the aisle to the other. Another was clinging onto her but lost her grip and the woman ran towards the door.

'She was punching, kicking and screaming at the stewards, they were trying to stop her but they had no chance.

'She was only petite but she had the strength of a fully-grown man. The only time I've seen anything like that was when someone had just dropped acid, she had super strength.'

Mr Brown was helped by other passengers and crew who pinned Haines to the ground while the aircraft returned to Stansted at around 5pm.

Passengers onboard the aircraft said the woman tried to run to the front of the aircraft and storm the cockpit.

Jet 2 said in a statement: 'We are now liaising with the relevant authorities to support their investigation, and we will not hesitate to prosecute.

'For years we have been highlighting just how serious the consequences of disruptive passenger behaviour can be.

'These consequences include huge fines, lifetime bans and court action.

'They now also include the authorities having to scramble fighter jets to escort commercial aircraft, proof that this behaviour must stop now.'

Police across Essex received numerous 999 calls reporting an explosion following the sonic boom.

The incident caused delays of up to half an hour at Stansted Airport with several aircraft forced to hold until the all-clear was given.

The Jet 2 flight between Stansted to Dalaman in Turkey left the Essex airport shortly after 4.50pm.

It was forced to turn around shortly before it reached the Dutch coast, at 5.15pm.

The jet was then intercepted by the pair of RAF jets and escorted back to Stansted where it landed at 5.49pm.
