A flight was diverted after a woman, identified as Desislava K, gave birth to a baby boy mid-air on July 26.
A Lufthansa flight from Bogota, Colombia, to Frankfurt, Germany, was diverted to Manchester following the mid-flight delivery.
According to Lufthansa’s press release, the crew moved several passengers to the front of the airplane to make the rear an ‘impromptu delivery room’.
The delivery took place with the help of crew and three doctors.
The baby boy was named Nikolai after one of the doctors.
“I’ve never experienced anything like that in my 37 years of professional experience. The entire crew did an extraordinary job. This was great teamwork, with everyone doing their part,” said Kurt Mayer, the captain of flight.
Same incident happened in jet airways recently.
People wonder if little Nikolai would get a lifetime of free air tickets .
Lufthansa replied saying that they don’t have this policy but will think of something nice for the baby.
When asked about the baby’s nationality, they said he would always be a little Lufthanseat for them.
According to Lufthansa’s press release, this has been the eleventh birth on a Lufthansa flight since 1965.
