Qatar Airways Boeing 777 diverts after severe turbulence


Last Saturday a Qatar Airways Boeing 777 from Washington DC to Doha had to divert to the Azores, Portugal after it was hit by severe turbulence. 3 of the passengers were injured.

Forum discussion:

Journalist Azad Essa tweeted how some passengers -not wearing their seatbelt- were tossed around in the cabin. 3 passengers were taken to hospital, 2 of them were released after a period of observation.

After the diversion, Qatar Airways sent a replacement aircraft to the Azores to pick up the stranded passengers. Some passengers started to get upset as they felt “abandoned by Qatar Airways”.
