Airline experts allege negligence of Jet Airways crew

Narrating the horrific incident, a passenger, Darshak Hathi, said, "After we took off the AC malfunctioned, then air pressure system malfunctioned too and oxygen masks came out". The aircraft turned around and landed in Mumbai, where doctors attended to the injured. "Out of 166 passengers on board, 30 are affected who have nose bleeding, few have ear bleeding and some are complaining headache", the official said. "All guests were deplaned safely and taken to the terminal".

An official with the Directorate General of Civil Aviation (DGCA) told CNN affiliate CNN News 18 that the crew allegedly forgot to press a button to pressurize the cabin.

Facing strong financial headwinds, full-service carrier Jet Airways on Wednesday said it will be stopping free meals on its economy class from bookings done from September 25.

Civil Aviation Minister Suresh Prabhu Thursday ordered a safety audit of all scheduled airlines and airports, amid recent incidents related to safety of passengers. "First aid was administered to guests who complained of bleeding nose etc".




The crew has been taken off duty and Aircraft Accident Investigation Bureau (AAIB) has started an investigation into the incident. "The airline is making alternative flight arrangements for guests on this flight", he said in a statement.

A complaint was lodged against Jet Airways staff and crew members of Mumbai-Jaipur flight No. 9W 0697 for dereliction of duties amounting to attempt of murder of travelers on board.

"The revised offering will now allow guests to enjoy more value for money, by letting them choose a travel plan based on their preference, travel requirements and budget", said a Jet airways spokesperson.
