This week, an American Airlines flight en route from London to Philadelphia was diverted to Ireland after cleaning chemicals leaked in the aircraft cabin.
Katie Phillips, a passenger on board the diverted flight, tweeted that a “chemical spillage” led to a “sickness outbreak” on the plane:
She says: “Ok, so this hasn’t quite gone to plan. Chemical spillage has led to sickness outbreak and an emergency landing in Dublin. #firecrew #paramedics #police”

According to CNN, medical personnel met the aircraft to evaluate if any crew members might need assistance.
While this is far from ideal, this is not the only plane that has been diverted for a crazy reason in recent days. There was a truly bizarre reason why this Air Canada plane was diverted.
Frankly, I would take either of these two causes of diversions over the terrible turbulence experienced and videoed on this Delta flight.
