Flight Diverts Because Passengers Feeling Sick

Dear American Airlines: A Novel

Apr 1, 2011 — An American Airlines flight from Virginia to Chicago was diverted to Dayton, Ohio Friday morning after passengers and flight attendants complained of being dizzy and feeling ill. At least four passengers fainted before the plane could land.

A passenger who spoke with the Dayton Daily News said that before the flight left Reagan National Airport an announcement was made about a problem with the airplane's air condition and the cabin pressurization system. But eventually the flight took off.
