MUMBAI: In a freak accident, an Air India service engineer died after he got sucked into the live engine of an A-319 aircraft at Mumbai airport on Wednesday evening. The engineer, identified as Ravi Subramanium, was in his forties. At the time of going to the press, the body was yet to be recovered from the engine.
Parked planes do not have their engines running in the 1st place. Even if they are on, they do not have sufficient power to suck in a human being. Even if during pushback, I don't think the engines are on, because I've noticed then being turned on after pushback.
Air India should be sold to private companies. Or, they should only operate bullock carts only !!!
How many times did you travel with Air India? Dude, you got internet and a laptop that does not mean you keep vomiting your filth on the Internet
No private company or foreign airline will invest in AI. This company has problems which are not related to the commercial aspect of the business.
Private companies in India are no angels. Look at Kingfisher
Good comment. This is not an accident. This is caused by negligent act of some one not following the rule.
What a tragic accident.Hope adequate compensation is paid to the kith & kin of the victim by AI
Very unfortunate incident and a precious life extinguished. It appears to be a mistake of the pilots . They were not cautious and did not follow the procedure.
Very tragic incident. Such video was seen on social media earlier and we thought it's fake.
Always in headlines for thier dogdy and careless incidents.
They need to take lessons but babu are very stubborn

The new co-pilot must have turned on the full power of the engines before it was due. What was the pilot doing when the co-pilot made this mistake ? A full inquiry must be carried out, and those implicated should face the music. Deepest condolences to the family of the deceased
