Plane passengers bled from their noses, ears on Jet Airways flight

Helios Airways

Pilots on the flight from Mumbai to Jaipur forgot to switch on the system to maintain cabin pressure, the Directorate General of Civil Aviation said.

This led to an imbalance in the cabin pressure and oxygen masks were deployed with which most passengers breathed.

Aircraft Accident Investigation Bureau is conducting an enquiry into the incident.

The airline said the flight's cockpit crew was removed from scheduled duties pending an investigation.

An airline statement says the flight with 166 passengers and five crew members landed normally in Mumbai on Thursday. When air pressure is lower, there is less oxygen available, and the air becomes thinner and drier, which can cause bleeding from the ears and nose.

All patients have since been released from the hospital.

The flight turned back "due to loss in cabin pressure", according to a statement from the Indian worldwide airline.

He also directed that the safety audit must start forthwith and the report submitted to him within 30 days and corrective action taken immediately on deficiencies found during the audit, an official said.

The airline later arranged an alternate flight for the 144 passengers to travel onward to Jaipur. "Thirty passengers had nosebleed, a few bled from the ear and some had headache", the official said. "I saw a passenger sitting next to me bleeding from the nose". "I took off my oxygen mask for one second and felt so stuffy and hot in the cabin.

Several others complained of extreme pain in their ears", Mumbai-based professional Prashant Sharma, who was in the flight, said in Jaipur.

Man City suffer surprise home loss to Lyon in Champions League
City suffered a 2-1 defeat to Lyon at home in what was arguably the biggest upset of the first matchday. When a pass by the Brazilian midfielder was intercepted around the halfway line, Lyon charged forward.

Satish Nair was one of the passengers who suffered a nose bleed.

In 2008, 16 passengers on a Ryanair flight from Bristol to Barcelona-Girona had to be taken to hospital after a drop in cabin pressure caused an emergency descent and diversion.

Taking a flight is the preferred mode of transport when we need to travel long-distance and generally, it is a safe and faster way to reach our destination.

The Ministry of Civil Aviation said the crew of flight 9W 697 had been taken off duty and an investigation had begun.
