Just a day after Jet Airways made a mid-way home return due to crew’s carelessness of not maintaining the air-pressure, Mumbai Police on Friday, September 21 booked the airline for ‘attempt to murder’.
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 Mumbai-Jaipur flight was carrying 166 passengers and five crew members on board. The Boeing 737 aircraft returned to Mumbai from half way because the crew had forgot to switch the ‘maintain cabin pressure’ button.
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.
