Air Deccan Cancels Flight in Mid-Air

Anand from Son of Bosey had to make an unintentional exit from the aircraft, when leading low-cost carrier Air Deccan unexpectedly cancelled the flight from Chennai to Bangalore in mid-air -

"Attention Passengers", came the announcement, "Air Deccan regrets to announce that this flight stands cancelled due to technical reasons. We regret the inconvenience", much to the consternation of all those on board. All passengers were then requested to leave the aircraft, and make alternative arrangements. Complicating matters, while insisting that the passengers de-plane in mid-air so that repairs could be carried out, the crew refused to provide parachutes, jetpacks, or even ladders, sparking off angry reactions.
According to unconfirmed rumours, as Anand - one of the few really wicked desi bloggers - was five feet away from the hitting ground zero, The Devil swooped in Superman-style and saved him. Both The Devil and Anand were not available for comments.
