A Delta flight was forced to make an emergency landing. Passengers say there was a loud boom and smoke coming into the cabin Passengers were praying and even tried to text family members moments before a Delta Air Lines flight was forced to make an emergency landing in North Carolina. "After we heard the boom we just saw all this smoke come up into the cabin, and that's when we really started freaking out," passenger Avery Porch told CNN affiliate WMAR. "It started slowing down a little bit, it started getting hot (and) air cut off." Nearly 150 passengers on Delta Flight 1425 were headed from Atlanta to Baltimore on Monday when one of the aircraft's engines had a problem, the airline said.

A scary flight incident took place this morning. An Air Canada flight made an emergency landing in Honolulu, Hawaii and several injuries have been reported. The plane landed at the Daniel K. Inouye International airport, according to the airport duty manager.

The Air Canada flight was completing a standard route from Toronto to Sydney. After a short stop in Vancouver, the aircraft was reported to have experienced ‘severe clear air turbulence’ while it was flying over the Pacific Ocean.

According to reports, Flight 033 was just west of Hawaii when it encountered severe turbulence over the Pacific Ocean. The aircraft was forced to turn around, before requesting an emergency landing in Honolulu. The pilot managed to land the plane at 6:50 AM Hawaiian time.

CTV News reports that between 20-25 passengers and at least one crew member have been injured as a result of the incident. Many of these people are reported to have head and neck injuries. The severity of the injuries are not known at this time.

An Air Canada spokesperson confirmed to CTV News that there was approximately 25 people on board who sustained minor injuries. She also noted that, "medical personnel are on standby to examine the passengers in Honolulu."

In a series of tweets, CBC News reported that there had been 269 passengers, and 15 crew members on board the Air Canada Boeing 777-200. Airline spokesperson, Peter Fitzpatrick said that the airline was in the process of arranging hotels and meals for all of the passengers that were on board the grounded-flight.

Dozens injured aboard Air Canada flight after plane hits turbulence

Dozens injured aboard Air Canada flight after plane hits turbulence MONTREAL — About three dozen passengers and crew were injured Thursday when an Air Canada flight travelling from Toronto to Sydney, Australia, hit severe turbulence and was forced to divert to Honolulu. Flight AC33 was about two hours past Hawaii over the Pacific Ocean early Thursday morning when "unforecasted and sudden turbulence" caused "minor injuries" for about 35 travellers and triggered a turnaround, Air Canada said in an email — though local emergency services highlighted nine "serious" injuries and 30 hospitalizations.

They will remain in Honolulu until a new flight to Australia can be arranged. All passengers that were injured during the turbulence and subsequent emergency landing are receiving medical treatment in Hawaii.

This comes only weeks after another Air Canada flight was forced to make an emergency landing in Vancouver, after one of the aircraft’s engines failed shortly after take-off. The flight had barely left the airport when the pilot was required to make an immediate landing. Fortunately, nobody on board was injured.

Supreme Court won't hear WestJet appeal in harassment case.
OTTAWA — WestJet Airlines has lost a legal bid to put an end to a proposed class-action harassment lawsuit. The Supreme Court of Canada refused today to hear WestJet's arguments to quash the suit launched by a former flight attendant. Mandalena Lewis alleges she was sexually assaulted by a pilot while on a stopover in Hawaii in 2010 and that the airline breached its anti-harassment promise in her contract. Her lawsuit proposes to represent all current and former female WestJet flight attendants whose employment contracts included the airline's pledge. The airline failed in the B.C.
