Airbus suffered another pre-delivery testing incident last week, when this Air Mauritius A330-200 depressurised, after this photograph was taken, on a customer-acceptance flight from Toulouse. "In the cruise there was a sudden decompression," says Airbus. "It was so sudden there was no time for [those in the cabin] to grab oxygen masks. Some became dizzy and unconscious." Seven of the 10 people on the aircraft were taken to hospital as a precaution. This follows an accident the week before in Toulouse involving an Etihad A340-600.
