October 10, 2014 - Not a good idea to shout out
you have the Ebola virus as a joke on a
commercial airline, on Wednesday a passenger
onboard US Airways Flight 845 did just that.
Flight 845 had departed Philadelphia
International Airport (KPHL) for
Punta Cana International Airport,
(MDPC/PUJ), on its final approach for Punta Cana
the passenger said "I have Ebola. You're all
screwed" the passenger further stated he had
recently been to Africa.
Flight 845 had departed Philadelphia about 10 AM and landed at Punta
Cana about 1:15 PM, upon its arrival the carrier
and Dominican officials decided they were not
going to take any chances. First responders
which included heath officials and police met
the Boeing 757 at its arrival gate (Gate A26)
dressed in protective HAZMAT gear.
