Airline experts allege negligence of Jet Airways crew

In the four-pager, Patel has accused the crew of Jet Airways of "dereliction of duty" and "poor crisis management" leading to the incident on September 20 on its Mumbai-Jaipur flight No. 9W-0697.

As a result, oxygen masks got deployed.

Over 30 Passengers on board complained of bleeding nose and ears while five of the passengers were diagnosed with "mild conductive deafness" which is caused due to a change in air pressure.

"After an hour of high-altitude flying, the flight had to make an emergency landing and about 30 passengers had blood (in ears and nose) and the rest were suffocating, putting the travelers in death-bed situation and condition", said Patel.

In the statement, Jet Airways said Flight 9W697 "made an air turn back due to loss in cabin pressure". The plane was heading to Jaipur, a tourist destination and the capital of Rajasthan state. As per initial information, few passengers had nose bleeding. "I took off my oxygen mask for one second and felt so stuffy and hot in the cabin".

The minister has also ordered a probe into the Jet Airways flight incident, which is being investigated by the Aircraft Accident Investigation Bureau (AAIB), an official statement said. Many passengers demanded compensation for the incident. He complained that the safety of passengers was being ignored. "There was no announcement by the crew and nobody knew what to do". All passengers are safe including me.

This comes at a somewhat tense moment for the airline - according to Reuters, it is "struggling to cut costs and embroiled in a pay dispute with pilots".

Those affected were given medical attention while alternative flights were arranged, Jet Airways said.

And in January, the BBC reported, the airline "grounded two pilots following reports of a fight inside the cockpit of a flight from London to Mumbai".
