    British Airways flight from LAX to Heathrow was forced to divert to Iceland after off-duty cabin crew worker 'slit their wrists'

    A BRITISH Airways plane was diverted after a member of airline staff tried to kill himself at 38,000ft.

    The cabin crew worker is understood to have slit his wrists in a cabin toilet on BA Flight 282 from Los Angeles to London.

    There was horror on board the giant Airbus 380 when staff made the grisly discovery of their colleague.

    It is not known what he used to cut himself. He was found slumped on the toilet seat after executive passengers noticed the cubicle had been locked for a long time.

    Emergency medical help was given to the off-duty steward and the plane diverted to Iceland.

    One British Airways worker told The Sun: “This was a terrible incident, everyone was upset.

    “There was blood and tears. It was truly shocking.”

    The plane was full of Hollywood executives headed for the Cannes Film Festival.

    Stan Rosenfield, a publicist whose clients include George Clooney, told how one of the toilets was locked for ages.

    He said: “Earlier, I remember going to the bathroom and it said occupied.

    “I didn't feel like going to another section. A little while later, the same thing happened, so I just went to another bathroom.

    "Then there were a series of beeps — I've never heard anything like it. All the flight attendants converged in the galley where the bathroom was and drew the curtain."

    A flight attendant told the passenger sitting next to Rosenfield – in Cannes to join Clooney for the premiere of his movie Money Monster – that a man had been found slumped in the toilet.

    He was said to have locked the door before cutting his wrists.

    The aircraft took off 20 minutes late from California at 3:50pm local time (11:50pm GMT) on Monday and was due to land at London Heathrow at 10am Tuesday.

    But the plane was forced to make an abrupt turn north shortly after 7am after the dramatic suicide bid.

    The Airbus A388 eventually landed in the Icelandic capital Reykjavik at 7:44am.

    The BA worker was immediately rushed to hospital.


    The London bound flight left LAX 20 minutes late and was carrying several Hollywood Exectutives Alamy
    The plane then departed Reykjavik just over two hours later and was en-route back to London where it landed at around 1:20pm.

    Film and music executives from US giants Fox and Sony were on the flight.

    Mr Rosenfield told the Hollywood Reporter: "It's very upsetting in retrospect when you consider what was going down.

    "Apparently, they knocked down the bathroom door when there was no response, or they had a key."

    Mr Rosenfield, along with other business-class customers, was interviewed on touchdown by police about anything they might have seen.

    He said: "I asked the officer if he was okay. He said he had been discharged."

    British Airways declined to comment on the man's condition and insisted on referring to him as a “customer”

    An airline spokesman said: "Our Los Angeles to Heathrow service was diverted to Iceland so that a customer could receive medical assistance.

    “The customer was taken to a hospital locally and the flight continued to Heathrow after a two-hour delay."

    This. Sounds like somebody had a beef with their employer and of course, it would have been too easy to just deal with the company or an attorney directly. Now hundreds are involved and inconvenienced.

    Me me me me... it's all about me.

    If I had to be on a flight longer than about 2.5 hours, I'd be thinking about slitting my wrists or jumping.

    It's good you think that because I don't want the secret to get out that it's a really fucking good gig. I would rather females join me at my job than guys. So guys need not apply. More pussy for me.


    But I'm sure the real reason he slit his wrists was because TSA confiscated his pint of vodka, he got a middle seat in the last row that didn't recline, his entertainment system was inop, his meal choice was gone by the time they got to his row, he got charged a fee because his bag was one pound overweight, they had to gate check his carry on to baggage claim which had his passport inside, and finally, the baby next to him didn't stop crying the whole flight.

    Oh yeah, and there was this band on board who thought it would be cool to play their music live for the other passengers...<slit slit slit>.
