Qatar Airways Flight Stranded in Lagos For Five Hours; No Information Given To Passengers, Who Remain in Seats
A Qatar Airways plane has been stranded in Lagos for five hours with the passengers in their seats.
Flight QR593 was supposed to have departed for Doha at 2:55pm Nigeria time but up till the moment of filing this report, it has neither done so, nor have the passengers, some of whom have begun to panic, been informed as to the reason for the delay.
One theory is that the aircraft has a faulty door that is inoperable, but it is unconfirmed, and the uncomfortable passengers remain in the dark.
Updates to follow.
