British Airways Flight Attendant Found Dead in Hotel Room After Failing to Show Up For Work

A flight attendant was found dead in her hotel room, in full uniform, after she didn’t show up for a flight.

British Airways flight attendant Emily Dunn, 22, was found dead in her Angola hotel room. Dunn was reportedly in full uniform when colleagues, who were worried because she had not shown up for a return flight to London, discovered her. The flight from Quatro de Fevereiro Airport (LAD) to London Heathrow Airport (LHR) that Dunn was scheduled to work was subsequently cancelled and the aircraft was later flown back to the U.K. empty.

Although Dunn’s body was found on July 16, news of her passing only came to light this week. British Airways released a statement that Dunn had a suspected heart condition. She had only been working for the airline since May.

“We were deeply saddened to hear of the death of our colleague, Emily, from a suspected heart condition,” a British Airways spokesperson told the Telegraph. “She was an enthusiastic member of our cabin crew team who enjoyed working for BA. Our thoughts are with her family and friends.”

Dunn is remembered as a girl with lots of potential, pleasant, and a devoted family member.

“I was only thinking before the news about when I turned 60 and Emily did the waiting on at the party,” family neighbor Lyn Lucas said. “She was such a lovely girl. She had loads of potential … She was just a go-getter, she always had a smile and a wave and was such a pleasant girl.”

@thebug622 Possibly asking the remaining crew—likely close friends—to work at a safety critical function so soon after a close friend's death would be a bad idea.

Why would the return flight be cancelled and the plane return to LHR empty?
