Three die on flights from Miami

Three people have died on planes from Miami to London in separate incidents over the past two days.
A woman and a man died on British Airways (BA) flight 208 on Sunday - the company said the deaths were not thought to be linked.

And a 19-year-old woman, who is thought to have had an existing medical condition, died just before a Virgin Atlantic flight landed on Monday.


Hope I'm just being paranoid....but isn't this kinda weird/suspicious?
With all the crap we've been seeing lately It makes me wonder...
bio-weapons???

Yes, out of the hundreds to thousands of people who flew MIA-LON in those couple of days, three died so it must have been bio-weapons.

If you read the article posted by Fabrice, you'll see the causes of those 2 deaths..

It's just a coincident I think. All three passengers died of different reasons.

One of the pax on the BA flight died of a hard attack, the other one was a suspected case of meningitis (not at all related with bioattacks). Yes its a weird and scary coincidence but it had nothing to do with bio terrorism.

First, a heart attack certainly could be related to a viral factor, I would think. Not common, but certainly feasible. Unusual diseases are often missed by doctors. A woman who went insane and died in my city was not diagnosed by any of the top neurologists here with having CJD. Only once she went to the Mayo Clinic was she diagonosed with CJD. At least her case does not appear to be vCJD, the slight variant linked to BSE(Mad Cow Disease). She died, since there is no cure for any strain of CJD, and yes they call variations of prionic diseases, strains.

Having one passenger die of viral menigitis, and another of a heart attack on the same flight is suspicious,especially given the fact that they were young people. People jump to the conclusion of bioterrorism, and I doubt that very much. However, people really badly underestimate the danger of natural outbreaks of very deadly diseases.

I guess the good thing is our immune system is pretty good at fighting most things, except when the germ doesn't look like at all what we've already seen. Typically, people who die from these things are thought to have some immune issue. Maybe the two people who died on that plane had some sort of lifestyle issues: drugs, alcohol, extreme lack of sleep,... For that matter, I guess transatlantic travel probably doesn't exactly help our immune system, I would think.

Statistically speaking it is certain that every so often there will be a clustering of in flight deaths. Given the total number of in flight deaths globally this cluster of three is not outside the normal statistical range. If you get to 5 on the same route by tomorrow - THEN you can start talking conspiracy theories without flouting the laws of mathematics.

I wonder if some types of a "jet set" lifestyle can be unhealthy to the point where unusual death is more likely.

After all, isn't that part of the reason we see clusters of a number of diseases in college dorms? Usually, it is things like meningitis, but from time to time, it is more unusual things. Smoking, drinking, lack of sleep can take its toll when in excess. The dry air on a jetliner can't help. Throw in people's tendency to remain confined to their seats for hours, and it is no surprise to see problems develop from time to time. Usually, you would expect to get people generally healthy otherwise on transatlantic flights, and perhaps less likely to have serious illnesses than the general populations. I remember a study fairly recently that found that cellphone users had longer and healthier lives than non-cellphone users. I would imagine that the cellphone community shares common attributes with jet set community.

I'm assuming that autopsies will be done and we will find out if any ballons were ingested and burst from the long flight and connection times in MIA.

Just a guess born of the headlines
