Jet Airways plane turns back after passengers suffer nose, ear bleeds

Nosebleeds on Indian flight after crew forget to pressurise cabin

The Jet Airways flight from Mumbai to Jaipur turned back after passengers experienced symptoms, including bleeding from their ears and noses.

Some of the people who claimed to be on board Jet Airways flight 9W 697 took to Twitter to describe their experience, with many being critical of Jet Airways for not providing information and assistance after the flight landed.

The plane's crew "forgot to select switch to maintain cabin pressure", Lalit Gupta, senior official at the Directorate of Civil Aviation, explained. The Boeing 737 aircraft returned to Mumbai safely.

According to the NDTV, as soon as the pressure in the Jet Airways flight dropped, the oxygen mask came down and some passengers started to feel dizzy, and some complained about a headache. "First aid was administered to few guests who complained of ear pain, bleeding nose etc", it said.

Passengers also said that some airport workers tried to prevent them from recording videos.

Jet Airways suspended two pilots for five years in January after a male pilot slapped his female co-pilot during a flight from London to Mumbai.

The flight's cock-pit crew has been taken off-duty and an investigation has been initiated by Aircraft Accident Investigation Bureau (AAIB).
