Oceanic Airlines Flight 815 was a regular, timetabled trans-Pacific flight from Sydney, Australia to Los Angeles, California. Roughly six hours into the flight, the plane began suffering several instrument failures. These failures prompted the pilots to attempt to land in Fiji, taking the plane 1,000 miles off course at the time of the crash. En route to Fiji, the plane violently tore apart in midair, breaking into three pieces which fell onto a mysterious, uncharted Pacific island. The reasons for the crash are presently unknown.

In Season 3 episode 18, Naomi mentions that Oceanic 815 was found, and there were no survivors.

Flight StatisticsEdit

Departing on September 22, 2004 from Sydney Airport, flight time was expected to be 13 hours, 52 minutes. The plane could hold a maximum capacity of 361 passengers. There were 30 First Class, 45 Business Class and 286 Economy Class seats.

Likely Causes of the CrashEdit

During the Season 2 finale, Desmond Hume surmises that the electromagnetic field built up by not "pushing the button" in DHARMA's Swan Station was to blame for the plane crash, as, according to the computer log printouts from The Pearl, the "system failure" happened on September 22, 2004, the date on which the crash took place.

Hurley Reyes believes the plane crashed due to the bad luck which seems to accompany him following his lottery win with "the numbers".
