No, I don't mean the passengers...

BBC NEWS | UK | Leaking mushroom soup halts plane (http://news.bbc.co.uk/1/hi/uk/7585234.stm)


A Ryanair plane was forced to land in Germany after a passenger had an allergic reaction to mushroom soup.
The soup leaked onto the man from a jar in an overhead locker on a flight from Budapest to Dublin on Monday, the airline said.




I'm sure there are some really good punchlines for this one, as well as a more serious one about having leaky containers in overhead lockers.

PS - well done the crew for sorting it.

Or, as my then 8 year old daughter told me when Mum had an allergic reaction to some tranquillisers - "Daddy, come quick, Mummy's illuminating!"

Soup, fly, is this some sort of a joke?

Good job it wasn't fish soup, would have given this thread fins...

Overhead lockers full of toadstools, there won't be mushroom up there then

As he said to his brother following his release from hospital, "That wasn't much fun, Gus."

Okay, okay ... coat ... door ... :(

When I saw the headline to this I assumed it was another thread about the Girona flight and the pax whinging about their near death experience in a controlled descent.

Now seriously folks how did a container of soup get through security?





At least it was in the dark if in an overhead locker

Well, there would have been no problem if the soup tin had been placed in a little plastic bag like it was supposed to ;).

So these apparently daft security rules regarding liquids clearly have a point after all - they were introduced in case passengers smuggle on mushroom soup then stow it over a passenger who happens to be allergic to the stuff.

Now that is foresight! :D;)

Apparently it was a gag that went wrong, perpetrated by MoL. A slightly pissed customer had complained to him in person saying "There isn't mush room on your plane", so MoL ordered that all flights must carry a fungus-based snack/drink product.

Sorry people, I'm not familiar with the operations of your UK airlines.

Would the passenger be charged extra for carrying his allergy with him in the cabin?

If so, would the airline be required to feed it ?

Just wondering !

Your flight crew today is captain Heinz Campbell and first officer Ena Baxter. We are currently cruising at FL330 inbound to our next waypoint KNORR. The weather at destination is fog, it's a real pea-souper so we will be diverting to Covent Garden.

Just poked my nose up in Rumours & News, and there's a similar thread up there.
A couple of posters having a hissy fit over peeps making fun of allergies. :ugh:

Peeps are funnier when they are being serious than peeps who are trying to be funny. :{

That's why I posted it here in the first place, to save the mods from having to move it (I think the R&N thread has been moved now). It was always going to degenerate so we might as well start at that level and save on the descent time.

I wonder what mushroom soup looks like when viewed by an x-ray scanner?

I wonder what the odds are?

1. Someone is allergic to mushroom soup.
2. Person boards an aircraft containing said item.
3. Person sits in seat directly underneath container of same.
4. Container leaks.

Not only that, frostbite, but I recall a time not so long ago when it was rare to have an allergy to anything. Now folks seem to be allergic to everything!

I'm allergic to budget airlines...
