Discount flight to Florida has problem over the Carolinas

by

GRAND RAPIDS (WKZO)-- Some extremely anxious moments aboard an Allegiant flight that took off Sunday from Grand Rapids and had to make an emergency landing in Greenville, South Carolina.

A sudden drop in cabin pressure put everyone on the oxygen masks that drop from the ceiling.

It happened about two hours into the flight bound for Florida.

It was seven anxious minutes before the pilot came on the intercom to explain that the plane had lost cabin pressure, and 8 more minutes before the plane was safely on the ground.

Passengers got free lodging overnight, a refund and a $200 voucher for a future flight.

They arrived in Florida the next day.

The airline has not said what caused the loss in cabin pressure.
