British Airways jet forced to make emergency landing after over-powering smell of weed fills plane

A British Airways plane heading to Crete, Greece was forced to make an emergency landing on Thursday after a strong overpowering stench of Cannabis/weed filled the cabin causing cabin crew to even fall sick. The plane was diverted over Paris and passengers spent an hour before a new plane and crew were organised to fly at midday costing the airline £50,000 after passengers...




Stuart, his wife Susan, and daughters Rosie, ten, and Olivia, nine were among 174 passengers on flight BA2552 who paid up to £700 for a return trip.
 Stuart, from Cardiff, said: “There was a faint smell when we got on. We were told that they hoped when they put the air conditioning on it would clear, but it got even stronger. You could tell straightaway what it was. Everyone at the back of the plane was saying it smelled of cannabis. We’ve been to Amsterdam and we know what it smells like.
“Our daughters could smell it but didn’t know what it was.“BA have been very quiet at giving us an explanation. All they said was the cabin crew was ill from a pungent smell at the back of the aircraft.”
“We were four rows from the back and the whole back of the plane stank. The smell was unmistakable.“We have no idea where it was coming from. All the passengers said it smelled like weed.
“We were quite concerned about what it was and the crew seemed quite alarmed as well which put panic among the passengers. My daughter is afraid of flying anyway and the crew didn’t do much to make us feel better.”
The cause and source of the smell remains unclear.

Title-crazy civil servants to go

Title-crazy civil servants are scared of being sacked, The Nation learnt at the weekend. Officials, who violated the Public Service Rule banning titles until after retirement, may be retired in the coming civil service reforms.
Only those whose titles were traditionally inherited may be spared but their postings and conduct will be put under watch.
According to sources, the government is disturbed that most of the top civil servants with honorary awards actually bought them at high fees.
The affected civil servants violated the rules which grants them the right to such honors only after retirement.
Besides committing the resources of Ministries, Departments and Agencies (MDAS) to such awards, most of the civil servants used the window to “grant favour to groups, persons, and communities in violation of their oath of office.”
