After Jet Airways Passengers Bleed Mid-Air Doctors Say Few May Suffer'Mild Deafness

At least 30 passengers on the airline's Mumbai-Jaipur flight suffered nasal and ear bleeding and headache as the Boeing 737-800 aircraft returned to Mumbai within minutes of take-off.

The drop in cabin pressure forced the pilots to return to the Mumbai airport, where five passengers underwent medical examination.

In a statement, Jet Airways concedes the plane had to return to Mumbai "due to loss in cabin pressure" and that it "regretted" the incident, per the BBC.

"The B737 aircraft, with 166 guests and 5 crew landed normally in Mumbai", Jet Airways said in a statement. A spokeswoman refused to confirm the claim that the crew forgot to press the button. "First aid was administered to guests who complained of bleeding nose etc". Passengers with respiratory troubles were the ones immediately impacted by this until the pilots made a decision to turn back and land in Mumbai. "As a result, oxygen masks got deployed", an official at Directorate General of Civil Aviation (DGCA) said.

Rapid decreases in air pressure cause air inside the middle ear and sinuses to escape the body in an attempt to equalise with the surrounding environment - usually experienced as a popping sensation.

"I saw many people having nose bleeds", passenger Joel D'Souza told CNN.

Passengers on a flight from hell began bleeding from their noses and ears when a knucklehead pilot "forgot" to flick a switch regulating cabin pressure, a report said.

"All the passengers were panicking, those sitting at the back and who were unable to wear the masks started bleeding from their mouths and noses".
