Passengers hurt in AI turbulence

Passengers hurt in AI turbulence

Videos of an air hostess trying to fix the fallen window back, and comforting the passenger who got hit by it, has been going viral.

One passenger, who possibly did not have his seatbelt fastened, hit and injured his head on the overhead cabin while two other passengers suffered minor injuries.

A probe has now been launched by aviation regulator the Directorate Basic of Civil Aviation (DGCA) and the Plane Accident Investigation Board (AAIB) into the Air India incident.

A passenger on a recent Air India flight learned this the hard way (quite literally) when her window panel popped out of its frame and knocked her "upside the head" while the aircraft was at 15,000 feet.

"The duration of Amritsar-Delhi flight is about 35 minutes and on April 19, the flight was full with over 240 passengers", another official said.

On 20 April, a senior government official said that private equity (PE) and venture capital (VC) funds with adequate net worth and capability can bid for Air India. The turbulence continued for 10-12 minutes and the passengers had a mid-air scare as the overhead luggage bins opened and some baggage tumbled out.

Baker said her friend's motivation to help others was "never about herself" but rather about giving support to others in need. After she died, Obama and his wife praised Bush "for the generosity she showed to us throughout our time in the White House".

It lasted nearly half of the 30-minute journey with the strongest tremors lasting 10-12 minutes, according to officials.

She was rushed to hospital immediately after hero pilot Tammie Jo Shults took the plane into a sharp descent and made an emergency landing at Philadelphia International Airport at 11.27am.

While the window panel broke, there was no damage to the outside window hence there was no de-pressurisation.

The Southwest Airlines Boeing 737 saw its left engine explode, causing a window to smash mid-flight. One of the overhead panels was covered in cracks.

At least three people are understood to have been treated for minor injuries.

The turbulence caused the inner window panel near seat 18-A to come off, but there was no loss of cabin pressure as the outside window did not break, the report said citing sources.
