    Singapore Airlines ‏@SingaporeAir1h
    Flight SQ317, from London to Singapore, diverted to Baku in Azerbaijan on 6 Jan 2014 due to cabin depressurisation.
    The aircraft landed uneventfully at Baku airport at 01:03 (local time). There were no injuries to passengers and crew on board.
    We are seeking clearance from local authorities to transfer affected customers to a hotel until a replacement aircraft arrives (3 of 3)

    Data from Flightaware shows that this is an A380-800.

    I wonder what caused the depressurisation (or if it is a fault in the indicator)?

    .....and here I am thinking SQ was stingy with their stop-over rules.

    Last I heard, they pax hadn't been able to leave the plane. Anyone know if they were ultimately let off the plane...and if so, to where? I saw some chatter about SQ trying to line up hotel rooms....but visas would be an issue for many pax.

    I guess one's willingness to leave the plane might also depend on the cabin that you're seated in! ;)

    Glad all are OK.

    Saw photos on Twitter that they were all sitting around the airport secure area just waiting.

    I think the problem may have been caused by a Sky Marshal. ;)
