Singapore Airlines has made changes to its in-flight policies following a recent turbulence incident.

The SQ321 London-Singapore flight, which experienced turbulence, has since changed its route. The new route avoids the area where the turbulence occurred. The incident resulted in one fatality and several injuries, with 46 passengers and two crew members hospitalized. Singapore Airlines is known for its excellent safety record and has not had any major incidents in recent years.
