What i did:

 I read a newspaper article from the Straits Times titled ‘ SQ 317: Passengers who were stranded in Azerbaijan arrive in Singapore’ and checked out the words i didn’t know previously, and summarized the entire passage to improve on my summarization skills.

What i learned:

eargerly: (wasn’t found in the dictionary) 

Summary:

Passengers on a flight that made an emergency landing in Azerbaijan finally arrived in Singapore. They were put up at a hotel for around 4 hours in Baku, were served food and drinks by the crew for the rest of their time in Baku. Many felt that the flight crew handled the emergency well, but the airline could have given them more information.
