Watch: Passengers Start Vomiting As Captain Fills the Cabin With Mist

Watch: Passengers Start Vomiting As Captain Fills the Cabin With Mist
Meg Butler

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.”

    Sensational much? I didn’t see or hear any vomiting. Mist, which is basically saturated air with water doesn’t cause people to vomit. The mist built up because they are in a tropical place and opening the door caused the moisture to increase. The captain didn’t “turn up the air.” You can’t really do that on a plane. They can only control the temp.

    I am struggling to understand why you think anybody would be interested in
    watching video of passengers vomiting. Just hearing about it is bad enough, thank you.

    I have experience mist like this. I think one person might have had panic vomiting, and I know if I was close enough to that vomiting, it might cause me to vomit. I would not vomit simply because of the misting. Misting is a fairly common occurrence.
