Air India AC Malfunctions Mid-Air, Passengers Forced To Use Paper As Fans

Published on 3 July, 2017 at 5:14 pm By

Once you have flown high up in the sky, be ready to manage what little things are available around you. The flight services often provide their passengers with the best facilities ever, which enable these services to flourish with ease. Closed up in a capsule with hundreds of other human beings and limited resources at your disposal, even a small glitch is enough to create inconvenience. This is what the passengers of Air India went through recently.

On Sunday, the Delhi-bound Air India flight left from Bagdogra with around 168 passengers on board when the cooling stopped working mid-air. According to passengers, the air-conditioning of the flight malfunctioned and they even complained to the staff. Videos of the passengers vigorously fanning themselves in a fully booked flight are taking rounds on various social media platforms.

 

The AI-880, an Airbus 320, left from Bagdogra (West Bengal) with 168 passengers around 1:55 pm. About 20 minutes into the flight, the passengers started complaining that the AC wasn’t not working. The helpless people started using the pamphlets kept on their seats to fan themselves as the atmosphere became intolerable.

One of the passengers informed News18 about their hardships and disappointment at the flight staff’s response on the matter,

The AC in the flight was not working and many passengers started feeling uneasy and complained of breathlessness. One passenger tried to use the oxygen mask, but that too was not working. We conveyed the same to a flight attendant and she said the issue will get resolved in some time. After landing at the Delhi airport (at 3:50 pm), the passengers waited for the captain and the crew members. It took them a long time to come out.

Some of the passengers had to resorted to oxygen masks but in vain as these masks were also not working. This could have turned into a big problem if any unthinkable disaster might have occurred.

It is notable that only recently, the government talked about the privatization of the national carrier. The airline is debt-ridden and has been facing losses for at least seven years.
