Air Transat Emergency Landing

Tue Mar 13, 2001 11:33 pm

Does anyone have details on the Air Transat flight from Cuba to Halifax that had to make an emergency landing in Florida a couple of days ago? I heard it briefly on the news, but I can't seem to find any details. From what I understood, the American authorities would not let the plane land at first (because of the embargo); when they finally did, the passengers had to stay in the a/c for five hours.

More info please. Anything in the papers about that?
