A Jet Airways flight with 166 passengers from Mumbai to Jaipur had to turn back shortly after take-off this morning, allegedly over a bizarre mistake by the crew.
Over 30 passengers have suffered ear and nose-bleed after the crew on flight 9W 697 reportedly forgot to select a switch that helps maintain cabin air pressure during take-off.
Many passengers have complained of a headache as oxygen masks were deployed.
All the affected passengers are being attended to by doctors at the airport.
The Directorate General of Civil Aviation said that the crew has been taken off duty and the Aircraft Accident Investigation Bureau has started an investigation into how the incident happened.
