Jet Airways passengers suffer nasal, ear bleeding due to cabin pressure issues

Nosebleeds on Indian flight after crew forget to pressurise cabin

Nosebleeds on Indian flight after crew forget to pressurise cabin

A shocking incident took place after at least 30 passengers onboard a Jet Airways flight were started bleeding from nose and ears onboard a Jet Airways.

An official at the DGCA told the Press Trust of India: "During the climb, the crew forgot to select a switch due to which cabin pressurisation could not be maintained".

The flight heading to Jaipur, Rajastan state, was forced to returned to a Mumbai airport, with 30 passengers needing medical assistance.

The Aircraft Accident Investigation Bureau (AAIB) is conducting an enquiry into the incident, the statement said.

In the Jet Airways plane to Jaipur on Thursday (Sept 20), BBC reported that the 9W 697 flight from Mumbai to Jaipur turned back to Mumbai shortly after take-off.

The letter's contents leaked last week and Ford identified herself in an interview with the Washington Post published on Sunday. The president said he was "totally supporting" Kavanaugh and rejected calls for the FBI to investigate the accusation.

"No staff to help.no announcement on board to wear the oxygen mask". Passengers with respiratory troubles were the ones immediately impacted by this until the pilots chose to turn back and land in Mumbai. "As a result, oxygen masks got deployed", Lalit Gupta, joint director general working for the Directorate General of Civil Aviation, told Newsweek.

Five of the passengers were diagnosed with "mild conductive deafness" which is caused due to a change in air pressure. Quartz notes Jet Airways has been contending with other recent troubles as well, including debt and tax woes. However, passengers on board the plane have said that the airline crew were completely insensitive to the situation, with no warning being given about the drop in cabin pressure, even after oxygen masks descended from the overhead areas. "Oxygen masks came out but no one gave us warning or instructions".

One tweet read: "Scores of passengers including me bleeding from nose". The flight landed safely largely because of the skill and presence of mind of the pilots and the air traffic controller. The airline will also cooperate with the DGCA on the investigation, Jet said in a statement on Twitter.

According to PTI, another unnamed passenger said that the plane "circled overhead for around half-an-hour before landing". The cockpit crew has been derostered, pending investigation, said Jet Airways.
