Passengers to United States stranded after emergency flight landing




November 20 (Reuters) – Dozens of people were stranded in Europe for a second night on Saturday after their flight to the United States made an emergency landing in Dublin following an engine failure, have declared passengers.

Brussels Airlines flight 102 was en route from Brussels to New York on Friday when the pilots issued a “pan-pan” message, which indicates an urgent but manageable problem, less serious than a “mayday”, during a flight westward 37,000 feet above Celtic Sea, aviation media and tracking websites said.

The 12-year-old Airbus A330-300 pilots requested a diversion to Shannon, western Ireland, but moved to Dublin on instructions from the airline, according to Aviation Herald, an independent website that follows aircraft incidents.

The Lufthansa (LHAG.DE) Brussels Airlines unit did not immediately respond to a request for comment.

Passengers praised the crew but said they had been accommodated in hotels in Dublin before being flown to Paris on Saturday, where many were subsequently unable to board overcrowded flights to destination of New York a few days before Thanksgiving in the United States.

Among them is Maja Schmidt, 18, from Germany, who was traveling to New York to work as an au pair.

“They didn’t have anything vegetarian so I ate bread and a cookie,” she told Reuters via her cell phone.

Also on board was 22-year-old Oliver Sommerburg, from near Hamburg, Germany, who took only the second flight in his life.

“It was crazy, I don’t know what’s going on. They’re not telling us anything,” he said.

Bernard Vidick, Belgian judicial officer, declared that he had been refused a connecting flight in Paris because the plane bringing back stranded passengers from Dublin had also been delayed.

“It means we are stranded in Paris when we should be in New York. We are losing two of the few vacation days we have,” he told Reuters.

Carriers serving the United States are bracing for congestion and delays next week as the Thanksgiving holiday straddles airline labor shortages.
