Jet Airways flight number 9W 0697 was turned back to Mumbai after half of the passengers on board experienced bleeding from their noses and ears.

A Jet Airways flight from Mumbai to Jaipur turned into a nightmare when passengers started experiencing disgusting injuries due to a cabin pressure fault.

Mr Sharma said, "I was sitting on an aisle seat when suddenly air pressure in the cabin dropped and oxygen masks came down. Thirty passengers had nosebleed, a few bled from the ear and some had headache", the official said.

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

In a statement, the airline said the flight landed safely in Mumbai and first aid was given to affected guests.

As a result of this lapse, the cabin pressure could not be maintained and oxygen masks were deployed.

As you can see in the footage, the travellers involved in the incident remained pretty calm while the cabin crew turned the plane around. Cabin pressure is thus maintained by the aircraft in order for it to be comfortable for humans. I was seated in 16 C and saw the passenger in 16 D bleeding from his nose. Aircraft climb at a rate of about 1,500 feet per minute and so the Jet aircraft would have crossed 10,000 feet altitude within 5-6 minutes, which was when the cabin altitude aural warning would have gone off.

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

Oxygen masks were deployed.

In a statement, Jet Airways said the B737 aircraft landed normally in Mumbai.

One middle-aged male passenger was brought to the Dr Balabhai Nanavati Hospital in suburban Vile Parle by Jet Airways officials. All guests were deplaned safely and taken to the terminal. As per their examination by ENT doctors, the five passengers suffered "barotrauma" of ear, which is caused due to a change in air pressure, Patankar told reporters here. Civil Aviation Ministry has taken cognizance of the matter and have asked DGCA to file a report immediately. "But he has sought escalation by way of compensation and upgrade in travel class", another source added.
