It's been a tough week on the Miami-to-London route. Passengers aboard two Britain-bound airliners discovered to their horror earlier this week that not all fatalities are caused by accidents. On Monday a 19-year-old woman aboard a Miami-to-Heathrow Virgin Atlantic flight died just before landing. No cause of death was immediately released. The day before, a British Airways flight diverted to Halifax for a sick woman who later died. After that flight resumed a male passenger became ill and died just before the plane reached London. So far, the incidents are considered to be a string of unrelated (other than the flight) events amounting to horrible coincidence.
