Jet Airways Passengers Share Experiences of Mid-Air Horror

Jet Airways passengers tweeted about mid-air horror after flight 9W 697 had to turn back to Mumbai because of a sharp drop in cabin pressure.

After the Boeing 737 aircraft landed, passengers were taken to the airport terminal where doctors administered first aid.
