Everybody off! Plane unloaded as passenger is carrying extra baggage – a baby!

A Bangkok bound plane was unloaded of passengers in Hat Yai yesterday after the captain discovered a heavily pregnant woman was on board.

The woman, seven months pregnant, did not have a letter from a doctor to say she could fly so the Air Asia captain ordered everyone on flight FD 3109 to Don Muang back into the terminal.

Following a delay the passengers were reloaded minus the pregnant woman and her friend who were allowed to take a later flight.

International regulations state that pregnant women carrying babies of 28 to 34 weeks duration must have a certificate from a doctor to fly and need to sign papers on board an aircraft too.

This had not happened in this instance and so due to safety concerns not only for the mother and child but for the rest of the passengers they were off-loaded.

Thai Rath did not explain why the passenger concerned was allowed to board a later flight.
