Twice in a row

Financial Mirror (Cyprus) - - FRONT PAGE -

Af­ter last month’s hi­lar­i­ous hi­jack of an Egyptair flight that was di­verted from Alexan­dria to Lar­naca, the big­gest air­planes in the world, the Air­bus A380 op­er­ated by Emi­rates, also made an un­ex­pected visit twice in a row.

Mon­day’s flight from Dubai to Manch­ester made an emer­gency land­ing af­ter a pas­sen­ger suf­fered a heart at­tack and was later taken to Lar­naca hospi­tal. Within 24 hours, a sec­ond Emi­rates A380, this time headed to Dus­sel­dorf, also made an emer­gency land­ing on Tues­day, af­ter a pas­sen­ger felt un­well.

Air­ports op­er­a­tor Her­mes posted on its Twit­ter ac­count: “Twice in a row could be an omen! Look­ing for­ward to a fu­ture sched­uled #A380 op­er­a­tion!”
