Extreme Turbulence Spoils Day of Business Class Fliers

15 people were injured by flying things as turbulence battered an American Airlines flight over Japan, with one poor lady suffering a bang on the head from the real plates used up front in the expensive seats.

Here's a man's video of the aftermath inside American Airlines Flight 280, taken shortly after the biggest bumps had rocked the plane. God knows how many minutes it's going to take to pick up all those pillows:

The plane, which was supposed to be flying from South Korea to Dallas, diverted to Tokyo so those battered both physically and emotionally could get treatment. [YouTube]
