“An airhostess on the verge of tears came and said that they had a technical problem,” said passenger Mattias Sonngård, to the Sydsvenskan newspaper.
“All we got to know was that the plane had been given permission for an emergency landing and that we should get into the emergency position with our heads between our knees.”
While it turned out that it was a broken television that caused the smoke, 23-year-old Sonngård explained that this information was never given to the passengers and that chaos ensued.
“It was total panic. People sat and screamed out that they didn’t want to die. The man in the seat behind me fainted and got help with the oxygen from another passenger. I asked an air hostess if we would crash on water or land. All I could think was that I didn’t want to drown – I wanted to die right away.”I hope the flight crew was pretty and smiled nicely when they greeted the passengers, because they were worthless as teats on a boar hog during this emergency.
When the plane eventually landed safely in Mallorca, flight staff still did not explain to the passengers what had happened, but rather, “sat on a bench and cried” according to Sonngård.I wonder if they were blondes. I know that's snotty...sue me.
