THY A332 near Hanoi on Jul 5th 2016, bread flambe
Last Update: August 24, 2016 / 22:59:31 GMT/Zulu time
The aircraft remained on the ground for about 3 hours, then departed again and reached Istanbul with a delay of 3.5 hours.
A passenger reported the aircraft was climbing out of Hanoi when flight attendants suddenly began to run from the front of the cabin towards the aft cabin carrying fire extinguishers, smoke became visible in the back of the aircraft. The aircraft turned back towards Hanoi, flight attendants hinted that the bread oven in the aft galley had caught fire, which was now extinguished.
Following the commotion on board the passenger, who needed to be taken to hospital, began to vomit, suffered from nausea and complained about serious head ache. The passenger was taken to a hospital and was admitted to the intense care unit with the diagnosis of brain haemorrhage (bleeding). The passenger recovered and was discharged from hospital on Jul 15th, the passenger was declared fit to fly home on Jul 19th.
Due to medical history of the passenger medical advisors to The Aviation Herald can neither rule out that the occurrence on board was causal for the passenger's deteriorating health nor establish a causal link with sufficient certainty (hence the AVH rated the occurrence an incident).
The airline did not respond to an inquiry by The Aviation Herald.
