The individual received immediate assistance from the flight attendants and onboard medical personnel. Around 7:30 p.m., the traveler landed at an airport in London and was given basic medical attention before being taken to a hospital for additional care.

Officials states

The incident on the BR67 Bangkok-London flight on March 15 was confirmed by EVA Air, while the name of the London airport in question remained undisclosed. Taiwanese airline EVA Airways Corporation has its main office in Taoyuan City. Together with China Airlines, a state-owned airline, it is one of Taiwan's two biggest carriers. In January, however, Taiwan's EVA Air and Airbus completed a formal contract for the acquisition of fifteen single-aisle A321neos and eighteen long-range A350-1000s. As a result, the airline becomes the most recent international carrier to decide to use the A350-1000 for its foreseeable long-haul needs. In addition, the carrier's regional network will see new levels of efficiency thanks to the A321neo aircraft.
