  • Air India crew member falls off plane, hospitalised

The aircraft was parked in the apron area of the Mumbai airport.

Earlier this week, an internal inquiry was set up by Air India Express after their Dubai-bound flight from Trichy, with 136 passengers on board, hit the Air Traffic Control (ATC) compound wall on 11 October at the Trichy Airport, and was subsequently diverted to Mumbai. This was also confirmed by news agency NDTV who reported that upon landing at Mumbai "officials soon found that the plane's body had tears, cracks, and dents that were potentially very risky. But we found some parts of the plane, like an antenna, on the ground".

After the incident, Air India launched a probe into the mishap and issued a statement saying, "In an unfortunate incident today, one of our cabin crew Ms.Harsha Lobo, operating flight AI-864, BOM-DEL, fell down on tarmac from B777 aircraft door L5 while closing it". The matter was conveyed to the pilot in command. "The pilot said nothing was wrong with the plane as the systems were functioning normally".

Trump Said Ulysses S. Grant Was Incredible, Not Robert E. Lee
As we reported yesterday, on Friday night NBC News tweeted an out-of-context, selectively edited clip of President Donald J. Trump at a rally in Cincinnati, OH making what appeared to be complimentary remarks towards Confederate General Robert E.


However, two hours into the flight, the flight was turned back to India in what the airline called "a precautionary measure".

Air India added that it was investigating the incident.

"I will never fly Air India, cannot believe this pilot was unaware of the danger he put his crew and passengers in", one user wrote. The Jet Airways aircraft was forced to return to Mumbai and initial investigations from the DGCA have revealed that the pilots failed to turn on the cabin pressurization system.
