Dubai-Mumbai Air India flight returns from runway after passengers turn breathless

A Mumbai-Bound Air India Express flight returned to the terminal from the runway at Dubai international airport on Sunday evening as passengers on board complained of suffocation due to an air conditioning glitch in the aircraft.

Passengers on the flight that was supposed to take off at 6 pm from Dubai, "returned from the runway after a woman complained of suffocation," said Prakash Rohra, a passenger.

"No announcement was made when the flight returned from the runway though," said Rupesh Shah, another passenger. He also complained of non-cooperative in-flight staff.

"They were very rude. Passengers, who were clicking pictures and recording videos, were forced to delete them. The staff had no courtesy to inform us about their course of action. However, they were quick to threaten us saying they would call the police if we didn't delete the pictures and videos," said Shah in a telephonic conversation with mid-day.
