British Airways Message Terrifies Transatlantic Passengers

What: British Airways Miami to London

When: Jan 14 2012
Why: Passengers got the fright of their lives aboard the British Airways flight when a tape warning passengers to brace for an emergency water landing played in the cabin. The incident occurred three hours into the flight, and caused passengers significant psychological trauma. The fight attendant responded within thirty seconds, but the captain never came on with an explanation of how the pre-recorded message was activated.

A flight attendant came on the intercom and apologized for the mistake. This is the second time (that we know of) the recording has been played on a British Airways flight.
