Passengers and flight attendants were shocked when water flowed from the ceiling of the aircraft cabin on Friday during a British Airways flight last week. Towards the end of the BA292 flight from London Heathrow to Washington DC, hundreds of liters of water suddenly began to rain from the cockpit of an Airbus A380. One of the passengers managed to capture the haunted scene in a video. This was pointed out by the news.com.au portal. The deck staff tried to wipe off the water, putting towels and blankets on the floor to soak up the water. The incident turned out to have a simple explanation. A British Airways spokesman confirmed that the leaked water was the result of a faulty valve on the internal clean water supply. When the aircraft landed in the USA, the defect was repaired and the aircraft resumed operation. “Although there was no security problem, the area was quickly isolated and the flight continued as planned,” the spokesman said. During the incident, the water was concentrated mainly around the stairs in the front of the aircraft leading from the first class cabin to the Club World seats. The passengers were quickly moved to the dry areas of the plane, and the flight crew laid rugs on the floor to stop the flow of water along the aisle. “Waterfall during the flight is not common in British Airways. Several people have already started to give up Zdravasy, but the staff was professional all the time, “said the airline employee. British Airways said the safety of passengers and crew was not compromised during the incident. A similar incident occurred on board British Airways’ Airbus A380 for the first time.
