VIDEO: Water pours into cabin of British Airways A380 flight at 30,000 feet | Secret Flying

A380 flooded as water pours from ceiling on BA flight.

 

A video captured the moment that water poured through the ceiling and into the plane cabins on a British Airways flight as it made its way to Washington DC.

 

The incident occurred onboard flight BA292 from London Heathrow to the US capital on June 10 towards the end of the seven-hour transatlantic crossing.

 

Flight attendants rushed to get towels and blankets to soak up the water flowing along the stairs, aisle, and floor of the Airbus A380.

 

In the video, the stairs at the rear end of the plane leading from the first class cabin up to the Club World seats appear to be drenched by the water leak.

 

According to reports, hundreds of litres of water poured into the cabins.

 

The airline said the issue occurred due to a fault with a water storage unit at the back of the jet, and emphasised that passenger safety was never compromised.

 

In a statement, British Airways said:Β ‘There was no safety issue at any point, this was from the clean drinking water supply.

 

“The flight continued safely to Washington and landed as normal.

 

“A faulty valve was replaced and the issue fixed.”

 

The leak was fixed upon arrival atΒ Dulles International Airport and the aircraft was in service again the same day.
