During Thursday’s Bellingham, Washington – Honoulu flight a passenger’s iPhone apparently burst into flames.
An Alaska Airlines passenger’s phone burst into flames on a flight en route to Hawaii, and the airline and the FAA say they are investigating.
Anna Crail was watching a movie on her flight to spring break when flames began shooting out of her iPhone 6, she told ABC affiliate KOMO-TV in Seattle.
“When it started I thought we were going down,” Crail told KOMO-TV.
An Alaska Air spokesperson said a passenger’s cell phone caught fire Thursday night after flight 807 had left Bellingham, Washington, and was about 90 minutes away from landing in Honolulu, Hawaii.
All she had been doing was watching a movie.
Anna Crail says she was watching a movie on the way to spring break when flames started shooting out of her iPhone 6.
“When it started I thought we were going down, and I was like, ‘oh my god, there’s a fire on the plane,'” Crail said.
No word if she was watching Backdraft.
The passenger reported eight inch flames coming out of their phone.
“And I flipped it off onto the ground and it got under someone’s seat, and the flames were just getting higher and a bunch of people stood up.”
Flight attendants put out the fire and the plane continued to Honolulu.
