This led to much travel chaos onboard the flight.


Finally, the flight was capable of making an emergency landing and none of the passengers or crew members was injured.


The passengers of the flight BA 143 that had departed from London on 18th March and had arrived in Delhi on 19th March had caught sight of dense smoke close to the pantry area.


Naturally, the passengers were all terrified and felt that the plane was on fire. So, they immediately alerted the crew members that conveyed the information to the pilots of the aircraft. Then, the pilots informed the air traffic control and requested for a priority landing.


An emergency was declared onboard BA143 and the arrangement for ambulances and fire tenders were made successfully.


Thereafter, the authorities gave clearance to the flight and it made a perfectly safe landing, according to an airport officer. Once all the passengers had left the aircraft, the food was shifted to an isolated bay for the purpose of inspection. During this time, it was discovered that some food had actually burned inside an oven inside the pantry.


The spokesperson of the airline sad that the aircraft had landed normally after their highly-trained cabin crew had dealt with the burnt food in an onboard oven.


Then, the crew members reassured the travellers that there was no danger to the aircraft.
