Azur B752 at Goa on Nov 11th 2017, engine problem, passengers left behind but luggage on aircraft
Last Update: November 15, 2017 / 10:36:19 GMT/Zulu time
Passengers reported following the rumbling and banging noises immediately after becoming airborne the crew announced they needed to return to Goa because two passengers had been left behind, their luggage however was still on the aircraft and they were therefore not permitted to continue for safety reasons. After landing back they could observe that the left engine cowling was opened and mechanics were working on the engine, while the passengers were kept on board with stairs attached, passengers were free to walk down the stairs and stretch their legs on the apron. A few hours later the captain announced the aircraft had been repaired and they could now depart, about 20 passengers wanted to disembark however not trusting the repairs, personnel told them they could disembark but their luggage would fly with the aircraft. The passengers decided to remain on board.
A further explanation regarding the two forgotten passengers was provided later indicating the passengers had proceeded to a wrong gate, were picked up by police there and held until the aircraft returned to Goa to pick them up.
About 9 hours after landing back the aircraft departed again and reached Moscow with a delay of 12 hours.
