Last Update: September 15, 2019 / 18:09:07 GMT/Zulu time
A passenger reported flight attendants advised they were needing to make an emergency landing at Dulles Airport, the passengers would need to adopt the brace position for landing and explained the procedures in case of evacuation. After holding for about 45 minutes flight attendants instructed the passengers to put window shades up and put the seats into their upright position, then nothing was heard anymore. The aircraft landed, a number of fire engines attended to the aircraft. The passenger commented: "It was truly bizarre, and a pretty terrifying experience for those on the flight, and the airline never told us why we went through it."
