Earlier this month, I wrote about how a US Airways Plane Diverts to Dublin After Entire Crew Gets Sick. It turns out another US Airways flight from Venice bound for Philadelphia diverted to Dublin.


Per CBS Philly, It is the second time in less than two weeks that a plane from Venice that was bound for Philadelphia had to be diverted because of crew members feeling ill.

U.S. Airways Flight 715 was scheduled to depart from Venice and land in Philadelphia Monday.

However, during the flight, several flight attendants became ill and the plane was forced to land in Dublin, Ireland.

It was not immediately known what caused the crew members to become ill, but fumes are believed to have played a role.

After landing in Dublin, the crew members were evaluated by medics and were allowed to return home.

This took place onboard a Airbus A330-200 with 238 passengers and 12 crew members.

Bottom Line

Does anyone else find it strange that this same flight diverted twice in two weeks for the same issue?

  1. Interesting. I have no idea but I’ll guess and say it’s one of a couple things. Fumes from the aircraft (is it the same plane?). Food or drink they consumed both times that made them ill.
