On July 26, a Lufthansa flight scheduled to fly from Bogota to Frankfurt was diverted to Manchester following a mid-air delivery.
According to Lufthansa’s press release, the crew created space for the delivery in the flight and three doctors who luckily were on board helped the woman deliver a baby boy. The baby boy was named Nikolai after one of the doctors.
“I’ve never experienced anything like that in my 37 years of professional experience. The entire crew did an extraordinary job. This was great teamwork, with everyone doing their part,” said Kurt Mayer, the captain of flight.
IN January, Jet Air hasd similar mid-air delivery and it had declared that the child will get lifetime free travel in the airways, when asked the same to Lufthansa, the airline replied saying that they don’t have this policy but will think of something nice for the baby.
According to Lufthansa’s press release, this has been the eleventh birth on a Lufthansa flight since 1965.
