VIDEO: Pilot puts air conditioning on full blast and unleashes chaos aboard AirAsia plane in India
The pilot decided to force the passengers to leave the plane, who refused to do so due to the heavy rain that was falling at that time.
Passengers of the AirAsia airline travelling from Calcutta to Bagdogra (India) on Wednesday went through an agonizing situation while waiting for their plane to take off. They got on the aircraft with half an hour delay, and once on board, they waited for an hour and a half more, when the pilot ordered them to leave the plane without explaining the reasons. However, people refused to leave the aircraft due to the heavy rain that was falling on the airport at the time, local media reported.
Faced with this situation, the pilot decided to force them out by putting the air conditioning fan at full capacity. What follows was a chaos! Indeed, after a few seconds, there was a pandemonium aboard the aeroplane, as shown in the video, as a dense fog began to fill the cabin and passengers rushed out to the exits. Also, there were women who began to vomit and children who started crying.
AirAsia apologized in a statement for the delay of the flight, but regarding the fog justified what happened saying that it is a “common phenomenon” when the air conditioning works in conditions of high humidity.
