Passengers in India literally “didn’t want the smoke” on a Spicejet flight from Goa to Hyderabad last week when smoke filled the cabin while in the air. A video of the incident has emerged on Twitter and it’s a terrifying sight to see.

Twitter tales:

As the cabin was filling up with smoke, passengers were choking for 25 minutes. What’s even worse, none of the oxygen masks ever deployed. Fortunately, once the plane landed at Rajiv Gandhi International Airport all the passengers exited safely off the aircraft.

The Directorate General of Civil Aviation has launched an investigation

The Directorate General of Civil Aviation also known as DGCA in India has launched an investigation, “The plane landed safely and passengers disembarked through the emergency exit. One passenger sustained minor scratches on the feet while disembarking from the aircraft.”

Passenger accounts:

“They (the crew members) told us to pray to God.. pray for our families… it was mortifying. Many of my co-passengers panicked and started shrieking,” said one of the passengers aboard the Spicejet flight.

“We were returning to Hyderabad from Goa.. suddenly there was smoke all around inside the plane starting from Nagpur to Hyderabad…It took 20 minutes from there and we all the passengers suffered and blacked out with fear. Luckily we landed alive and safely… But what if something happens and who would be responsible, this happened clearly due to the negligence of the crew and respective department,” said passenger Srikanth Mulupala on Twitter.
