Two flight attendants were injured on February 17 in separate onboard incidents. A Russian Ural Airlines attendant fell from an open cabin door during ground servicing in Dubai after a service vehicle struck the aircraft. Reports said the truck struck with enough force to move the aircraft 10 feet on the ground. In another incident, three United Airlines attendants were injured after their Boeing 737 encountered severe turbulence on approach to Billings, Mont. One attendant was critically injured, while the other two were treated and released from a local hospital.
