  • Flight Crew Forgets to Regulate Cabin Pressure Over 30 Passengers Suffer Bleeding From Ears & Noses- WORLD OF BUZZ

There were screaming and cries and many of his co-passengers suffered nose and ear bleeding as the crew of the Jet Airways flight "forgot" to turn on a switch that controls cabin air pressure.

Releasing a statement, Jet Airways said, "Jet Airways Mumbai-Jaipur flight today made an air turn back due to loss in cabin pressure".

A video has emerged showing the crowd on the flight from Mumbai in western India to Jaipur in the north using oxygen masks that we all hope we never have to use while up in the air.

The Ministry of Civil Aviation has taken cognisance of the incident and asked aviation regulator Directorate General of Civil Aviation (DGCA) to immediately file a report.

A passenger said that there were no warnings or instructions even as the oxygen masks were deployed.

The airline said in a statement that the flight turned around "due to loss in cabin pressure" and "regretted" what happened.

This forces a drop in cabin pressure.

"Scores of passengers including me bleeding from nose".

Audi presents electric SUV e-tron in San Francisco
Audi's new e-tron, which hits the market next spring, has been heralded as a game changer by leaders of the German automaker. Performance specs weren't given, but the e-tron should have about 400 horsepower and almost 500 lb-ft of torque.

The incident took place onboard the flight 9W 119, a Boeing 777 that had 324 passengers and 14 crew members onboard.

One middle-aged male passenger was brought to the Dr Balabhai Nanavati Hospital in suburban Vile Parle by Jet Airways officials.

Incredibly, cabin crew failed to pressurise the cabin of the B737 aircraft, which landed safely with 166 plus five crew on board. Oxygen masks were deployed but I'm not sure if there was any oxygen.

"The crew announced that the plane will return.it then circled half-an-hour before landing".

Recently, Jet Airways was also pulled up by a Bengaluru Consumer Court for overcharging a passenger for an economic class ticket and for losing another passenger's bag. Jet announced the passengers would be accommodated on the next flight at 9:30 am.

The reason behind it was that the crew forgot to maintain the cabin pressure due to which the passengers fell sick and also several complained of a headache.

"All guests were deplaned safely and taken to the terminal", the carrier said. Some of the passengers documented their "terrifying" experience online, with one noting passenger safety was "completely ignored", per the Times.
