Jet Airways flight makes emergency landing as 30 passengers suffer bleeding

Over 30 Jet Airways passengers bleed mid-air by crew negligence

"The 9W 697 Mumbai-Jaipur flight was turned back to Mumbai after take off as, during the climb, crew forgot to select switch to maintain cabin pressure".

Subsequently, Oxygen masks were deployed for the passengers on board.

"Thirty out of 166 passengers experienced nose and ear bleeding, some also complained of headache", Lalit Gupta, deputy director general, Directorate General of Civil Aviation (DGCA), said. "The flight's cockpit crew has been taken off scheduled duties pending investigation".

Raj Sivakumar, senior vice-president for sales & distribution said the decision comes from the fact that guests, especially the millennials, wish to be empowered and exercise their right of choice and globally service models in the airlines' space change every day. It added that 144 of the original flight's passengers have been transported to Jaipur on a different flight, and 17 decided "to travel at another point in time".

For example, the average fare between Mumbai-Delhi, which hovers around Rs 3,000-3,500, will now be Rs 300 to Rs 500 cheaper if the passenger prefers not to have his/her meals on board. The crew is being derostered.

As Jet Airways Flight 9W697 took off from Mumbai on Thursday, something terrifying quickly became clear: The cabin was not properly pressurized.

The Ministry of Civil Aviation said in tweet that 30 of the 166 people on board were affected and provided with medical treatment.

A similar incident was recorded in April 1988, when an Aloha Airlines flight between Hili and Honolulu in Hawaii Islands suffered huge damage after an explosive decompression, but managed to land safely at Kahului Airport in Maui.
