Thunderstorm: Woman Dies Onboard Delta Airline’s Plane.

Breaking: A female passenger died inside Delta Air Lines after a thunderstorm caused the flight from Lagos to divert to Lome.

A passenger who has not yet been named died in midair on Monday while traveling from Atlanta to Lagos on a Delta Air Lines flight. Three hours prior to the flight’s scheduled arrival in Lagos, it was discovered that she passed away as a result of a medical issue that transpired in midair. The pilots had to divert the aircraft to Lome, Togo due to strong thunderstorms in the vicinity, even though the crew had decided to go on to Lagos. Some people close to the development claimed that the weather and refueling caused the flight to have an extra delay at Lome. There were 215 passengers on board the Delta Air Lines A330-200 aircraft.

Nevertheless, after almost eight and a half hours, the aircraft made a safe landing in Lagos. The original plan was for the flight to arrive on Monday by 10 a.m. It was discovered that the travelers were paid.

In a statement, Delta Air expressed regrets for any difficulties or delays it may have caused to its customers’ travel plans while they were in flight. “Delta flight 54 ATL-LOS has safely landed in LOS following an onboard customer medical situation and subsequent diversion to LFW due to weather,” the announcement stated. We really regret any difficulty and delay caused to our customers’ travel arrangements. On social media, a few travelers as well as Nigerians commented on the flight and the thunderstorm situation which caused it delays.

He mentioned that the plane ran out of fuel, forcing the passengers to make an emergency landing in another nation and the thunderstorm situation contributed.
