DELTA AIRLINE: A Hellish Flight To Lagos?

Passengers onboard a Delta Airline flight to Lagos, southwestern Nigeria, emerged from the plane half nude on Friday night following a hellish heat on the aircraft, witnesses said.
It was not clear what caused the air-conditioned system of America’s first class airline to collapse but witnesses described as hellish the last minutes of the flight from New York to Lagos.
It was learnt that about six people collapsed under the terrible heat, a source said.
“Passengers said the heat was unbearable. Many people removed their clothes, men and women were naked,” a source who saw and spoke to some passengers said.
“The cooling system failed and the heat was terrible,” the source said.
Many Nigerians prefer to travel with foreign airlines because of the comfort and safety record, but the latest incident may leave many passengers wary.
Meanwhile it was learnt that Ethiopian Airline flight to Nigeria’s south-eastern city of Enugu was cancelled because there were only three passengers onboard.
Nigeria’s embattled minister of aviation, Stella Oduah, who is enmeshed in a corruption scandal, designated Enugu airport as an international airport this year, but many airlines find the Enugu route not viable.
