Flight SU2606 of the Russian airline Aeroflot from Moscow to Lisbon was urgently deployed halfway in the skies over Poland. This is reported on website Flightradar.
The plane was returned to the airport of departure. Previously, the reason was the strike of ground services workers who are unhappy with the terms of wages and demand that the transshipment company, which is experiencing financial difficulties due to the pandemic, pay back wages and vacation pay to employees.
Now the work of the air harbor is paralyzed. The strike is supposed to last two weeks. By this hour, about 200 flights have already been canceled at the Lisbon airport, and this figure will continue to grow until the end of the promotion.
According to the latest information, the plane flying from Moscow to Lisbon returned to the airport of departure. The Sheremetyevo scoreboard reported that flight SU2606 departed from Moscow at 17.21, and returned there at 21.31.
Earlier, the flight from the US state of Nevada to the neighboring state of California was called a “flight to hell”. It took 17 hours instead of one. At first, the plane was unable to land due to the lack of people at the control tower – the pilots were unable to obtain the weather report required for landing. The board had to be turned back to the airport of departure. However, there, too, the liner was denied landing due to a thunderstorm and lack of visibility. As a result, passengers had to spend the entire night at the Los Angeles airport without food, water or toilets.
