Not the first time this has happened. It is why good pilots double check their calculations. Also, before you start the take off, you should try and have some idea where along the runway V1 is going to be. There are no instruments on the flight deck to tell you you are going to slow and or accelerate to slowly. Other then the good old eye ball mk1.

Default Airhostess falls off plane while closing the door

another bad-rep for Indian airline

Looks like Air -India will now be on everybody's Do Not Fly list. How can someone lose their balance while closing? Don't they close from inside and wouldn't this happen close to air-bridge. Raises questions on fitness of air cabin crew have in case of emergencies if they cannot close a door properly during flight

You would be surprised. This happens at least a dozen times every year. There is probably not an airline in the world without a similar accident.

Doors are rarely opened in flight and thus the need to close a door properly inflight is not required. In fact there is no way to open a door on an airplane in flight. The cabin is pressurized and the door fits in its frame from the inside like a plug. So the pressure differential keeps it closed.

Default Re: A trip I'd like to forget: Onboard the Jet Airways flight that skidded off a runway

I gather it was a drop of thirty feet? Some reports underplay the incident, others report the poor lady's state as critical. People die falling off the terraces of two-storey houses. This would be more like three.
