For easyJet, this is the second emergency they have had this week so far.

As well as today’s incident on the Lisbon-London flight, another flight from Madeira-Gatwick did the same.

This incident happened on February 26 in the late hours of the evening during descent into destination.

On that particular emergency, it was due to smoke in the cabin.

What Was The Reason for Today’s 7700?

As per @FlightEmergency on X, the reason for today’s emergency is due to a medical emergency onboard.

The nature of this medical can vary and is hard to determine usually, for the correct reasons.

easyJet flight U28512 will no doubt continue on to London from Lisbon via Nantes tonight.

There will be a delay to the arrival due to the need to offload the affected passenger off the airplane.
