AirAsia Jet Plunges 24,000 Feet In Just 9 Minutes

By Grace Vasquez

I fly because I have too but turbulance has always made me nervous. I can’t even fathom what these passengers must have felt as their plane suddenly began plunging.

An Indonesia AirAsia jetliner rapidly descended by 24,000 feet after the aircraft lost cabin air pressure while traveling from Australia to the holiday island of Bali on Sunday.

People aboard Flight QZ535 criticized the flight crew for allegedly screaming when the plane rapidly descended 20,000 feet, adding to the chaotic situation.

“The panic was escalated because of the behavior of the staff, who were screaming and looked tearful and shocked,” passenger Clare Askew told CNN affiliate Seven News Australia after the plane turned around and landed safely back in Perth.

AirAsia said the flight had a “technical issue” and was diverted.

Now this isn’t the first time AirAsia has had plane problems. In June, a pilot urged passengers to pray after a technical issue caused massive shaking on an AirAsia flight from Malaysia headed to Perth.

Well, given a choice, I’d rather be on the flight where the pilot encourages prayer as to flight attendants yelling in a panick. I wouldn’t be able to hear them over my own screams anyway! ~grace
