Qantas to compensate passengers for plunge

October 09, 2008|From the Associated Press

SYDNEY, AUSTRALIA — Qantas Airways said today that it will financially compensate all passengers from a plane that made a terrifying plunge Tuesday, tossing people around the cabin and injuring dozens.

Each will receive an airfare refund and a travel voucher equal to the cost of a flight between Australia and London, a Qantas spokesman said. The airline also planned to help pay medical expenses.

Investigators said Wednesday that instruments aboard the A330-300 warned of a glitch in the stabilization system just before the accident.
