IT WILL BE second time lucky for almost 300 Aer Lingus passengers this morning as they make their second attempt to fly to the US.

The Boston-bound flight with 280 people on board had to turn back yesterday and return to Dublin Airport after a number of cabin crew members reported feeling unwell.

Flight EI139 had left Dublin at 4.23pm yesterday when two hours and fifteen minutes into the flight, the decision was made to return to Dublin.

The plane landed at Dublin at 8.40pm and was met by medical officers, which Aer Lingus said is normal procedure.

Passengers were put up in a hotel for the flight and are due to be flying to Boston later today.

Aer Lingus is investigating the incident.
