A passenger and six cabin crew members on a Brisbane-bound Cathay Pacific Airways flight were injured when the Airbus A350XWB hit severe turbulence.
Flight CX157 left Hong Kong International Airport at 12.49pm for the eastern Australian city and reportedly encountered the bumpy conditions about an hour into the journey, as staff were serving meals.
The cabin reportedly shook for 10 minutes, during which crew members were thrown up and hit the ceiling.
The crew subsequently decided to divert to Manila where the aircraft landed safely about one hour after entering the hold.
The aircraft remained on the ground for about 3 hours, then continued the journey and reached Brisbane with a delay of 4:15 hours.
