“I’ve never seen anything like this in my life,” said Marc Stanley. “I fly all the time, usually you can adjust.”
Passengers say the plane dropped without warning during the meal service and lasted for 45 minutes.
Four passengers and one flight attendant were hospitalized for their injuries. None were life threatening.
"All of a sudden there's just a big drop and food and plates and everything started just flying all over the place," Stanley said.
The plane landed in Tokyo around midnight local time.
