Italy to Philly flight diverted by sick attendants

  • May 11, 2014

PHILADELPHIA (AP) – A US Airways flight from Italy to Philadelphia International Airport was diverted to Ireland after several flight attendants fell ill.

The National Transportation Safety Board is investigating Saturday’s incident involving Flight 715 from Venice, Italy to Philadelphia.

Federal and airline officials have yet to say what caused several flight attendants to become nauseous and dizzy, and caused their eyes to water. Officials say none of the 185 passengers on board were injured or sickened.

The flight landed at Dublin Airport in Ireland Saturday afternoon.

The airline says doctors were examining the flight attendants while the airline arranged for the passengers to get to Philadelphia on other flights.
