  • Nosebleeds on Indian flight after crew forget to pressurise cabin

A Jet Airways flight from Mumbai to Jaipur was forced to turn back Thursday after around 30 passengers complained of nose and ear bleeds due to low pressure in the cabin.

A video shared by passenger Darshak Hathi shows oxygen masks drop into the interior of the cabin as air pressure dropped. "Thirty passengers had nosebleed, a few bled from the ear and some had headache", the official said. The crew, meanwhile, has been taken off duty and Aircraft Accident Investigation Bureau (AAIB) has started an investigation.

"The airline is making alternative flight arrangements for guests on its flight", the statement added.

"As a result, oxygen masks got deployed", he said while confirming the number of injured passengers.

Aircraft cabins are pressurized to replicate conditions that our bodies are used to on the ground.

Rapid decreases in air pressure cause air inside the middle ear and sinuses to escape the body in an attempt to equalise with the surrounding environment - usually experienced as a popping sensation. According to DNA sources, 30 passengers had nose bleeding.

The incident took place onboard the flight 9W 119, a Boeing 777 that had 324 passengers and 14 crew members onboard.


Sadly, this isn't the first controversy to plague Jet Airways.

And a third claimed: "Due to the negligence of cabin crew of #Jetairways.my four-year-old son suffered bleeding from the nose".

Incredibly, cabin crew failed to pressurise the cabin of the B737 aircraft, which landed safely with 166 plus five crew on board.

"When the oxygen masks were deployed, there were no announcements from the crew about what the passengers must do".

"All guests were deplaned safely and taken to the terminal", the carrier said. Following the incident, Civil Aviation Minister Suresh Prabhu ordered a sweeping safety audit of every Indian airline, airport, training school, and fix company.

After doctors attended those who were affected, five had to be admitted to Mumbai's Nanavati Hospital.

Jet Airways also added that they are, "extending full cooperation to the DGCA for the ongoing investigation of the event".
