Paramedics Called To Aer Lingus Plane As Crew Members Become Unwell On Flight


An ambulance was called to Dublin Airport earlier today when the crew reported feeling unwell during a flight from San Francisco to Dublin.

Paramedics were waiting for Aer Lingus Flight EI146, as it landed just before 1 pm today. The passengers were kept on the plane as a precautionary measure while the seven crew members who said they were unwell were checked.

In a statement to Lovin Dublin, Aer Lingus said, ” a number of cabin crew aboard the EI146 flight from San Francisco reported feeling unwell during the flight, and as a precautionary measure, guests were not disembarked until HSE assessed the situation as per normal protocol.”

The airline also said the pilots were not affected and were able to land the plane as normal.

Aer Lingus added: “The HSE has now completed its standard review and all guests are now disembarking the aircraft.”
