An Air New Zealand flight suffered severe turbulence that required guests to seek emergency help when the plane landed.
The plane was flying into Invercargill Airport from Christchurch when the flight was hit by 111-mile cross winds. One passenger claimed “about 20 percent” of passengers were throwing up from the rough air. Once the plane safely landed at the airport, passengers were helped by emergency services. Air New Zealand reportedly contacted all passengers on the flight later that evening and apologized for the situation, as well as offered a refund.
