    Medical emergency Malaysia airlines

    Medical emergency Malaysia airlines 4th Oct 17 at 11:14 AM
    Can anyone please tell me where I stand,
    I flew out on Malaysia airlines mh003 on September 15 this year,
    During the flight a medical emergency occurred during which a illegal immigrant was being deported,
    The deportee had smuggled a razor blade on board and slashed his wrists, in the toilets after takeoff, despite having 2 security officers with him,
    We returned back to Heathrow, and was told that a new crew would be called for, and we would fly at 6 pm that night, no problem with that just a long delay,
    But as 6 pm was almost near, we were informed that we were not going as they could not get a new crew, where do I stand claiming compensation for not the medical emergency delay , but for the airline saying we were flying, then not hope someone can help, many thanks

    When did you fly, the next day? did they provide overnight accommodation?
    What a desperately sad story.

    Firstly put your flight details into bottonline & EuClaim and see what they say.

    We flew the next day and they did give us accommodation, it was very sad, but so much for security at Heathrow!
