30 suffer nosebleed due to Jet Airways' staff negligence

Govt directs DGCA to start comprehensive safety audit plan

The flight crew forgot to select the "bleed switch" that normalises cabin pressure, leading to nose and ear bleeding of 30 passengers.

Nanavati Hospital's chief operating officer Rajendra Patankar said their health condition was stable and they did not require admission.

The official said the DGCA would look into the incident first and then a decision would be taken on whether the matter should be referred to the AAIB. And though most of the times it is a much more efficient mode of transportation than any other, the number of things that could go wrong on a flight is a scary thought.

Some of them experienced temporary mild deafness. The airline didn't apologise for the incident. It was suffocating inside.

Experts said fluctuations in air pressure inside aircraft cabins is not unusual but it is rare for cabin pressure to change drastically because of human error.

A video shot inside the cabin showed passengers sitting with the masks on. "There was no announcement from the pilots or crew whether we were going ahead or landing".

"Suddenly, we smelt like a wire was burning".

The President also ordered the release of 21 pages of material related to FISA warrant applications surrounding his former campaign staffer Carter Page.

He claimed that after take-off the air-conditioning malfunctioned after which the air pressure system malfunctioned and oxygen masks dropped down.

The crew acted "unprofessionally" and the staff on the ground was "clueless" as to what happened, another unlucky traveler said. "I put on the mask, but blood from my nose collected into the mask and dripped on my clothes", he added.

"All the passengers were panicking, those sitting at the back and who were unable to wear the masks started bleeding from their mouths and noses". Only half of the people stranded at the airport got refreshments after repeatedly asking for it.

The rest were given treatment at the airport hospital.

Speaking to media, the spokesperson also said the aircraft, with 166 passengers and 5 crew landed normally in Mumbai and all passengers were deplaned safely.

The plane carrying 166 passengers landed safely.

Several commuters complained of severe headaches and at least 30 reported bleeding from their nose and ears.
