Cracked window on SpiceJet flight shocks passenger, airline apologises

New Delhi: A passenger travelling on a Mumbai-Delhi SpiceJet flight shared a picture of a cracked window pane on the plane, following which the airline has apologised.

When the passenger posted the picture on Twitter, SpiceJet issued a statement apologising for the same.

“Safety is our utmost concern and at no point in time does the airline compromise on the same. We shall surely convey this to the concerned head for necessary action. The inconvenience caused is regretted,” the airline said.

However, the passenger further confronted the airline and said, “If there is a cello tape pasted, it means someone has seen it and aware of the situation.”

The airline said it has highlighted the matter to the concerned head for necessary action.

It is worth noting that if a window breaks completely when a flight is in midair, the compressed air inside the plane rushes out and cabin pressure drops.

Experts say that anybody sitting close to a broken window on a plane, it could suck out the passenger. Within seconds, the pressure and temperature inside the aircraft will fall and it will become very noisy inside the cabin.

Passengers can face extreme breathing problems as well, especially those with respiratory issues. Fortunately for the passengers on board SpiceJet flight SG8152, the window was just cracked and not completely broken.
