Incident involving ceiling panel on Delta flight causes concern among passengers

A Delta Airlines Flight from Honolulu to Minneapolis encountered an unexpected problem on Saturday when a ceiling panel came loose during flight. The Boeing 767-332 (ER) took off under normal conditions, but the situation changed as cabin crew rushed to fix the problem. Passenger Marissa Walton captured the alarming moment on video, showing the panel hanging dangerously over a passenger's head. Walton shared the footage on social media platform X via the account @fl360aero, where it quickly gained attention, reaching over 121,100 views.

In her post, Walton expressed her concern: “I'm no expert, but this doesn't look good,” MSN reported. Fortunately, no injuries were reported, but the incident left many passengers unsettled.

Reactions on social media were mixed, with some users criticising Boeing. One commented: “It's a Boeing, what else do you expect from it,” while another joked: “I don't know, man. Has Boeing never heard of electrical tape?” Another user, who identified the problematic part as the Passenger Service Unit (PSU), said: “PSU. I think he's installing it wrong. You have to remove a slit panel on the front or back of the PSU, snap the panel into the groove on the sides and align it, then install the removed slit panel.”
