30 passengers ‘bleed’ in Jet Airways flight

Jet Airways plane on runway

According to an official statement, the incident happened after the crew forgot to switch on the system that maintains cabin pressure. "As a result, oxygen masks got deployed", said an official at Directorate General of Civil Aviation (DGCA). 30 out of 166 passengers experienced nose & ear bleeding, some also complained of headache. "I believe, Jet, the Mumbai airport staff and even the regulator are to be blamed", said Nair.

"Jet Airways regrets the inconvenience caused to its guests", it said in a Twitter post.

The Aircraft Accident Investigation Bureau has started an investigation.

After Jet Aiways' Mumbai to Jaipur's mid-air horror, 13 passengers who were among the 166 onboard during the incident refused to fly on an alternate flight arranged by the airline. When air pressure is lower, there is less oxygen available and the air itself becomes thinner and drier, which can cause bleeding from the ears and nose. The plane had to turn back to the Mumbai airport. Footage from inside the plane also shows that oxygen masks were deployed. As many as 30 passengers said they suffered from nose-bleed. It went on to add that the plane landed normally as guests "deplaned safely" and taken to terminal.

Passengers on board took to social media to share their shocking experience and frustration.

President Trump said Wednesday that "tremendous progress" was being made toward North Korea giving up nuclear weapons. Before this year, two South Korean presidents had visited Pyongyang, hosted by the late Kim Jong Il in 2000 and 2007.

The issue is said to have occurred after the crew missed activating what is called a "bleed switch" before take-off. "There was no announcement (related to the problem) from the crew".

Other passengers complained that they were forced to sit in the aircraft for long, no breakfast was served and there was no information from the airline.

And in January, the BBC reported, the airline "grounded two pilots following reports of a fight inside the cockpit of a flight from London to Mumbai". The flight later took off for Jaipur at around 10.40am with a changed aircraft.

"Panic situation due to technical fault in @jetairways 9W 0697 going from Mumbai to Jaipur", he tweeted, adding all passengers were safe.
