A video from on board an AirAsia flight that shows passengers throwing up as the plane’s cabin fills with a thick mist has gone viral.
Passengers claim that the captain caused the mist when he turned the air conditioning on full blast in an attempt to force passengers off of the plane.
The plane they were on, originally headed to West Bengal, was delayed for more than four hours. Then, says one passenger, the captain ordered them off the plane without explanation. As it was raining heavily outside, the passengers refused.
So the captain turned the air conditioning on high.
AirAsia India acknowledged the delay, confirming that “light i5583 from Kolkata to Bagdogra was delayed by 4.5 hours due to a technical requirement.” They added that the air conditioning was turned on, but as a result of “high humidity conditions.”
