Turkish Airlines plane evacuated over ‘unattended bag’
ISTANBULA Turkish Airlines plane was evacuated after the crew believed there was an unattended bag on board on April 28 in Istanbul's Atatürk Airport.
The crew wanted all passengers to handle their bags, after thinking there was an extra passenger on board.
The plane was evacuated due to the unattended bag, which turned out to belong to a passenger who didn’t hear the crew’s announcement because of headphones.
The passengers were taken to the plane after security checks.
The North Cyprus-bound plane took off 3.05 p.m., with a one and a half hour delay.
