"Our latest initiative is a step ahead in terms of flexibility and being receptive to our guests' preference to facilitate greater choice and convenience", he said.

The spokesperson further informed that the flight " s cockpit crew has been taken off scheduled duties pending investigation adding that "the airline is making alternative flight arrangements for guests on this flight".

The flight turned back "due to loss in cabin pressure", according to a statement from the Indian worldwide airline.

Videos from the flight posted online showed passengers wearing oxygen masks, which automatically deploy if there is a drop in pressure.
