This is another timely reminder to wear your seatbelt when seated. Holding you close to your seat will protect you from the sort of injuries sustained on this flight, when unsecured passengers flew to the ceiling of the aircraft, and then came crashing down once the ‘drop’ ceased.

The hope will be that this is an anomaly – a ‘freak accident’ in casual parlance. If it is a systemic error either mechanical or electronic, then this is a larger concern for the airlines that fly Boeing Dreamliner 787 aircraft. Let’s hope it isn’t. If it is, it will pile on the woes to Boeing’s existing stack.

Strangely, they rather closely echo airlines that are generally highly regarded for their operations and service standards. No surprises there. It’s also interesting to note that in normal times, the top 10 or so, service Australia.

The odd thing is to co-list Virgin Australia and Virgin Atlantic, when Virgin Australia shares very little other than a branding license with the Atlantic namesake, and hasn’t flown internationally since around April 2020.
