An Aer Lingus flight from Dublin to
Chicago was forced to turn back today
when a suspect package was discovered.
Flight EI125 was 30 minutes out from
Dublin Airport when a member of the
cabin crew heard a noise from a box in
an overhead bin.
The pilot decided to turn back as a
precautionary measure and the plane
landed at Dublin Airport at 4pm.
The box contained a number of in-flight
magazines and the noise came from a
piece of medical equipment stored
behind the box. The plane is due to
depart for Chicago later this evening
It could have been a bag shifting in the bin during flight. Why didnt she just open the overhead bin and check instead of turning the aircraft around? There's being cautious but that was a bit extreme I think.
