Moreover, in the video, a passenger can be seen helping a distressed passenger to walk down the aisle and later on helping her get some air using paper. There are other travelers as well behind the sick woman to help her move. The woman later in the video tells about the problems they are facing on the flight.
The woman in the video tells that they had a cancer patient on board whose husband claims that she was feeling claustrophobic because of the failed air conditioners. Furthermore, she says that the airlines should have never taken off the plane if the ACs were not working; she adds by saying that it’s “a disgrace on the entire system.”
Taking note of the problem, Go First Airways replied to the post with the video and told the passengers to share the details of the flight so they can take a look into the matter. Go First Airways, in the tweet, said, “Hi, we thank you for reaching out to us, and we are with you in your time of need.
