OMG, I just read this in the news…
About 275 passengers were on the London Heathrow to Hong Kong flight on Tuesday evening when the automated message went out, ‘We’re about to crash’. The plane was flying over the North Sea at the time.

Cabin crew quickly realised the error and moved to reassure the terrified passengers.

How awful! God, I’m so glad I wasn’t on that plane. I hate flying. I think I would have had a heart attack.

“We apologise to passengers on board the flight for causing them undue distress,” he added in a statement.

Undue Distress – is that what you call it?
Jeekers oh, someone could have died…then what… ‘I’m sorry for causing your death.’

Terrible.
