The crew decided to make an emergency landing after a passenger became critically unwell.
The Airbus A380 (reg. VH-OQJ) was planned to resume its leg to London with a takeoff at 8.55 (local time) from Athens.
But the flight is delayed and passengers are stuck in the plane on the tarmac, waiting for updates.
Can’t get through on any numbers to arrange other flights, stuck on the plane on the tarmac with no updates
