Air Asia flight 5583 from Kolkata to Bagdogra — a 277 mile flight — was 4.5 hours for mechanical reasons. After 90 minutes passengers were asked to get off the aircraft. It was pouring down rain and people didn’t want to leave.
Air conditioning on board aircraft will mist in highly humid conditions. Passengers contend that the captain turned up the air conditioning in order to smoke them out since they didn’t want to leave. That seems unlikely to me, the first response to passengers who aren’t following crew member instructions isn’t to give them air conditioning — indeed, air conditioning that was probably already on. Open the doors and the plane becomes more humid.
Nonetheless this passenger video has gone viral because of just how darned misty the plane has become. Passengers became sick from the mist.
Flight no I5 582 of Air Asia to Bagdogra. First they pushed back, then returned to bay .. then anounced technical snag. Kept stationary for one hour on tarmac to instruct deplaning. When passengers objected, put blowers in full blast to hound passengers out. Simply suffocating kids …
No food or water in beteeen.
You can hear passengers shouting, they do get up from their seats and they’re waiting to exit the aircraft. They seem to disappear in the mist.
