Jet Airways sacks both pilots who were involved in mid-air brawl

As per directions from the global airline grouping IATA, Jet Airways on Thursday said it will prohibit passengers from carrying smart luggage on its aircrafts from January 15. "Removal of batteries from the smart luggage and to declare them to the check-in staff is the sole responsibility of the guest".

Lithium batteries powering smart bags have been known to overheat and explode. Around 320 passengers were on-board the flight, a Boeing 777.

It said that the decision was taken in tune with the regulations of the International Air Transport Association (IATA) and applies to both check-in and cabin baggage. The association announced late last month that its Dangerous Goods Board restricted carrying smart luggage on passenger flights operated by its 275 member-airlines from January 15.

The airline said that once the battery is uninstalled and carried as cabin baggage, it must not be reinstalled until the aircraft arrives at its destination.

Two senior Jet Airways pilots who got into a mid-air brawl during a London-Mumbai flight have been fired from their jobs, the airline said today.

Guests checking in are required to uninstall batteries of their Smart Luggage prior to check-in.

The airline pointed out that the same procedure will be followed for smart luggage which will be carried as cabin baggage.

The airline will accept no liability for damage/ malfunction of the Smart Luggage in any form due to un-installation and/or re-installation of the batteries.
