Some people suffered nose bleeds, hospitalised
At least 30 passengers were left bleeding after the crew of the Jet Airways forgot to flick a switch regulating cabin air pressure.
Some people suffered nose bleeds, while others bled from the ear.
The plane was carrying 166 passengers from Mumbai to Jaipur. It had to turn back after people required immediate medical attention.
A total of five people were taken to hospital after the flight landed.
Darshak Hathi, one of the passengers, also posted a video of the aircraft on social media.

“All guests were deplaned safely and taken to the terminal. First aid was administered to few guests who complained of ear pain, bleeding nose etc,” said the Jet Airways in a statement.
The cabin pressurisation system ensures the comfort and safety of passengers by controlling the exchange of air from inside of the aircraft to the outside.
