Flight makes emergency landing after flight attendents become ill
(CNN) — A US Airways flight en route from Italy to the United States was diverted to Ireland after flight attendants became ill, officials said Saturday.
Responding to the medical complaints, the pilots switched gears over the Atlantic Ocean, making an emergency landing Saturday afternoon at Dublin Airport.
Several flight attendants aboard US Airways Flight 715 complained of “nausea, running eyes and dizziness, while traveling from Venice to Philadelphia,” according to US Airways spokeswoman Michelle Mohr.
Medical professionals were evaluating the flight attendants at a local hospital.
“There are no reports of illness from pilots or passengers and we are reaccommodating our customers on other flights to Philadelphia,” said Mohr.
The aircraft remained at Dublin Airport. According to flightaware.com, the plane is an Airbus A330-200.
