According to, TUI Airways Flight 1714 was en route from Newcastle, England, to Larnaca International Airport when several passengers reported seeing the pilot on the ground of the cockpit just 16 minutes into the journey.

The fear among the passengers only increased as flight attendants were seen transporting oxygen tanks to the front of the plane. A person onboard at the time of the incident said the pilot could be seen collapsed on the floor with coffee spilled all over the cockpit.

An American Airlines pilot became incapacitated and later died during an early red-eye flight from Phoenix to Boston on Monday. Despite these precautions, mid - flight health emergencies and deaths are by no means unprecedented.

The pilot who collapsed and died on an American Airlines overnight flight from Phoenix to Boston has been identified. Cpt Michael Johnston, 57, was flying the plane with 147 passengers and five crew on board when he "passed away while at work", the airline said.

Due to the quick thinking of the flight crew and the co-pilot, the plane called for an emergency landing and touched down safely at Sofia Airport in Bulgaria. The pilot was transported to a local hospital for examination.

“We can confirm that as a result of one of our pilots feeling unwell, the decision was taken to divert the Newcastle to Larnaca, Cyprus, flight last night. A priority landing was requested at Sofia, Bulgaria, which was the closest airport and the pilot was taken to a nearby hospital to be assessed,” a TUI Airways official told

“We would like to thank all of our customers for their patience and we are working to get them on their holiday as quickly as possible. The welfare of all customers and crew traveling with us is our priority at all times.”

Passengers on the plane were forced to stay at a hotel in Sofia before continuing their flight Monday to Cyprus. As a result, several people took to social media to complain about the lack of information being provided to them by TUI Airways officials.

Yeah we are stuck in Sofia - Bulgaria for the night! Don't know anything about the return flight back though
