In a distressing incident on 20 May 2024, Singapore Airlines (SIA) flight SQ321, en route from London Heathrow to Singapore, was forced to divert due to severe turbulence.

The Boeing 777-300ER, carrying 211 passengers and 18 crew members, made an unscheduled landing at 1545hrs local time in Bangkok on 21 May.

Posting this unfortunate news on its Facebook page on Tuesday evening, the airline has confirmed one fatality and several injuries among those on board, sparking immediate response efforts.

“Singapore Airlines offers its deepest condolences to the family of the deceased,” said SIA .

The focus now turns to the well-being of the remaining passengers and crew as the company mobilizes resources to assist.

A team from Singapore Airlines is en route to Bangkok to coordinate with local Thai authorities, ensuring that necessary medical assistance is provided.

The airline has committed to maintaining transparent communication, promising regular updates through its social media channels on Facebook and X.

It’s a BOEING! 737 max – MCAS problems. Other Boeings – problem of plug doors flying exploding out mid flight. All within the past 5 to 1 years. I wonder if other readers here read international news?

Its Not a pilot error…/fault.
the “Big Boss in the Sky ” who controls the earth’s weather is responsible😇😁

Not many people CAN REMEMBER the Obscene Bonuses ANNOUNCE by SIA pay out when many numbers of people CRYING FOUL on SIA pocketing money originally from tax payers BAILING them OUT.

God seems to have a hand.

U BETTER WATCH OUT, U BETTER NOT Cry. Let me tell U why….

Report outside the 158th media indicated more could die, as about 7 are critically injuried!
No mention on the nationality of pilot or identity.
But I guess you ppl here …CAN ALREADY MAKE THAT GUESS!😆😆😆😆🤣🤣🤣🤣

Injuries increases but death still 1 only??

Even the skies are not friendly to SIA now. LawlanWong just got another shxt on his plate, hor.

Joke:is sq planes bcome like titanic?

The insurance and compensation payouts will eat into the profits..
Will staff still be getting that 8months bonus after this?

Really bad luck once LW took over.
Turbulence seldom if ever gets fatal.
Pilot must be so inexperieced?
Cannot be.
Must be greedy swallow all the profits now, when it was the ppl who were dying from Covid then that this airliner was saved with money from the state and they should return this money!

Air turbulences with death is not often heard of. It’s very fortunate the plane is intact and the rest of the passengers and crews are back to ground safely
