Music Star relates nightmarish South African flight experience
In a new report, Deborah Cox is so disappointed with South African Airlines after a nightmare flight experience. The Canadian singer was in Ghana for the Ghana World Music Festival and she boarded the flight to return to the United States.
According to Cox's social media post, there was a fire in the cockpit and the plane had to make an emergency landing. She said it was the scariest situation she had in recent times, there was a fire in the cockpit and the passengers were in the air for about 15 minutes and had to turn back around and went back to Ghana. "That was the scariest thing I've been through. I just want to go home", she tweeted.
All in all, she says that there had been a three-hour delay prior to the flight due to a broken door that was being fixed. Although she was in Ghana and boarded a flight there, she kept mentioning the words "South African Airlines, Fire in Cockpit, God Help Us". The videos that were posted showed the lights inside the plane had been switched off as the pilots performed emergency landing, with some travellers screaming, and others could be heard praying.
The singer complained about the attitude of staff and also expressed her disappointment with the way the airline allegedly handled the situation. She accused the airline of not taking the safety of passengers into account when it insisted on flying a 'damaged plane'. by saying "No answers as to when another plane will be coming in, or whether or not it will be a new plane. Passengers disgruntled. Kids vomiting. Scared. Shook. Terrible way they handled the situation."
In addition to all these, her luggage was left behind in the U.S. on her flight to Ghana last week - and was only delivered to her two days after her arrival.
