From CD Media:
On Saturday evening, KHOU-TV Houston reported that the airport spokesperson told that news organization that the flight was diverted “due to a technical issue.”
UAL’s CEO Scott Kirby has prided himself for making mandatory covid vaccinations part of UAL’s branding since August 2021 when he first mandated the shots.
At that time, UAL employees could apply for a religious or medical exemption. Kirby has claimed publicly that 99% of their employees have been vaccinated.
But, there is more to Kirby’s proclamations. If a religious exemption was granted, employees were put on “unpaid leave.” They did not have access to any of their benefits, including medical, vision, life, and their 401(K) accounts. If they wanted to continue with their medical insurance, they had to make payments which was burdensome because they were not receiving paychecks. It was only in March 2022 when those put on unpaid leave were invited back to work.
This is the third such incident this month where an airline pilot reportedly had a medical emergency.
The first officer of a Virgin Australia regional flight from Adelaide to Perth reportedly became incapacitated after suffering a heart attack 30 minutes into the flight, according to an incident report by The Aviation Herald.
