Passengers bleed mid-air after Jet Airways crew forgets to maintain cabin pressure

A Jaipur-bound Jet Airways flight was turned back to Mumbai on Thursday after several passengers suffered ear pain and nose-bleeding during take-off because of loss in cabin air pressure. The oxygen masks were deployed to the affected passengers on board. The Mumbai-Jaipur flight with 166 passengers and five crew members on board landed safely in Mumbai and all the passengers were deplaned. Subsequently, first aid was given to the passengers who complained of ear pain, bleeding nose etc, a spokesperson of the airline said. Narrating the incident, Darshak Hathi, a passenger said, "The flight landed at Mumbai airport after an hour and we were told that we will be shifted to a different flight. This is an unfortunate incident. After we took off, the AC malfunctioned, then air pressure system malfunctioned too and oxygen masks came out. Some of us experienced nose bleeding and headache".
