Due to turbulence, passengers of the German airlines Condor and Lufthansa suffered injuries. The Lufthansa plane, which according to the plan was to fly from the USA to Frankfurt, had to land early in Washington. The turbulence of the Condor flight to Mauritius brings 20 injured passengers as a result.

The Lufthansa flight to Frankfurt experienced turbulence 90 minutes after taking off from Austin. This is known as clear-air turbulence, which can occur without any visible cloud phenomena. Trained personnel were able to look after and care for the injured passengers. According to the FAA, seven passengers were taken to the hospital. Ultimately, the decision was made to land early at Dulles International Airport.

A similar fate befalls the Condor flight to Mauritius, two hours before the scheduled landing turbulence was detected. There are 20 reported injuries in said aircraft. There is no precise information on the severity of the injuries, some suffered bruises and one person is even suspected of having a fracture. The return flight from Mauritius will not take place for the time being, the plane will be subjected to a technical inspection before a return flight is approved.
