An airplane passenger was shocked when he saw a crack in the window next to him that had been patched with tape.
Hariharan Sankaran posted a photo of the broken window from his Spicejet flight from Mumbai to New Delhi yesterday.
He uploaded it with the caption: & # 39; Spicejet flight SG8152 (VT-SYG) Mumbai flying to Delhi (Nov. 5, 2019) with a broken window glued with cello tape. Is it not a major safety risk? Is someone listening? & # 39;
A Spicejet spokesperson responded quickly to Mr. Sankaran's tweet and said that safety is the airline's top priority.

The image was posted on Twitter with the passenger reporting the & # 39; major security issue & # 39; marked
They claimed that the incident was marked on Spicejet bosses, but the passenger noted: & # 39; If an adhesive tape is stuck, it means that someone has seen it and is aware of the situation. & # 39;
An airplane window that breaks at height is extremely dangerous and probably deadly.
Aircraft flying at 10,000 feet do not provide enough oxygen for passengers to breathe, so cabins must be under pressure.
If the window breaks, air will flow from the outside to the inside at terrifying speeds, trying to equalize the cabin pressure.
These gusts of wind can be so strong that they can suck people through and outside the aircraft.
India today reported that the Spicejet window was broken off only on the inside and that the outer window was not broken.
The plane would have landed in Mumbai 28 minutes later than planned.
