Newborn flying high…33,000 feet high

Finnair says a Swedish woman gave birth to a girl 33,000 feet over Kazakhstan on a flight from Bangkok to Helsinki.

The Finnish national carriers spokesman Christer Haglund says mother and baby are fine. They were met at the airport by a medical team.

Two doctors and two nurses were among the 227 passengers on the 11-hour flight aboard the MD-11 aircraft. They assisted the birth Thursday with the aid of a satellite link to a medical service.
