Caroline was on the BA624 flight heading to Rhodes, ギリシャ, from London on Saturday but the incident forced the pilot to perform an emergency diversion to Athens.

彼女はツイートした: “A big ‘thank you’ to the @British_Airways pilot who got us safely diverted to Athens after our plane’s windscreen broke … terrifying.

Now happily waiting for another not so dramatic flight to Rhodes!”

The airline arranged for a relief aircraft to transfer passengers to Rhodes later the same day.

A spokesperson for British Airways said: “Due to a technical issue, the flight was diverted to Athens and landed safely.

We apologised to the customers and a replacement aircraft was arranged to get them to their final destination.

It remains unknown what caused the windscreen to break.

It comes as a passenger captured the shocking moment a window on the plane he was travelling on appeared to crack sparking panic onboard.

チクタク user Tristan was 飛行 onboard a ポーランド Airlines flight from Warsaw, ポーランド, に ニューヨーク‘s John F Kennedy Airport when the horror incident took place.

Last month a woman was shocked to find she was sitting next to a “壊された” plane window during her flight.

Thankfully it was not all as it seemedalthough some people said they would still be terrified.
