Turkish pilot considers aborting landing due to vomiting passenger
A vomiting passenger was about to force a Turkish airliner to abort landing in Istanbul on Oct. 8.
The Turkish Airlines TK1820 flight from Paris was given permission to land in Istanbul’s Sabiha Gökçen Airport.
But the pilot considered to abort the landing at the last minute because of the sick passenger, according to Demirören News Agency.
“Our passenger just got sick. He is vomiting and needs to use the restroom. We may be forced to skip the runway,” the pilot was heard telling the tower five minutes before the landing.
The passenger felt better before the landing was aborted, according to the report, and the plane landed at 16:55 without any problem.
