An EasyJet flight had to make an emergency landing after a Champagne Cork caused damaged to the interior…
The flight was flying from Britain to Turkey.
A stewardess on flight EZY8845 accidentally popped the cork into the roof of the plane. This resulted in damage to the plane and oxygen masks to come hurtling down.
The pilot then told the members of the flight not to panic as they landed in Milan.
One passenger told The Sun:
It wasn’t very funny at the time but I can see the lighter side now. All that hassle, delay and money wasted by easyJet — all over a champagne cork! No one on the flight could believe it and people I have spoken to have found it hilarious.
The passengers suffered a seven hour delay.
A spokesperson for EasyJet said:
EasyJet can confirm that flight EZY8845 from London Gatwick to Dalaman on August 7 diverted to Milan Malpensa as a precautionary measure due to a technical issue with the cabin crew oxygen masks. In line with safety procedures the captain took the correct decision to divert so that the cabin crew oxygen masks could be reset. The safety and wellbeing of our passengers and crew is always easyJet’s highest priority. We would like to apologise for the delay and any inconvenience caused.
