Norwegian Sweden B738 at Gothenburg on Feb 2nd 2023, balls
Last Update: February 4, 2023 / 13:21:02 GMT/Zulu time
The aircraft remained on the ground in Copenhagen for about one hour, then continued the flight and reached Alicante with a delay of about 95 minutes.
A player of IFK Gothenburg reported the captain became aware of the balls in the cargo during climb out and told the passengers in what the captain named an "odd announcement", that they had about 30 balls on board, he was concerned the pressure differential might cause those balls to burst and cause damage, hence they were diverting to Copenhagen. After landing all air would be released from those balls and they'd continue. After a review of the now uninflated footballs by the captain himself the aircraft continued to Spain.
