A cabin crew of a Mangaluru-bound
Spicejet flight was injured Friday when she fell down during
the push back of the Bombardier Q400 aircraft, said a source.
The aircraft was taken back to the bay and the airline
replaced the crew with the same plane departing for its
destination at 8.45 am, the source said.
The airline has confirmed the incident.
"A crew member of flight SG 1035 operating on the
Mangalore-Bengaluru route fell down during the push-back
and sustained injuries," said the source without disclosing
the nature of injuries on her who is under treatment now.
The plane was then taken back to the bay and the
flight departed for its destination at 8.45 am.
"During push back, a cabin crew suffered a minor
bruise. As a precaution, the pilots decided to take the
aircraft back to the bay," the airline said.
