Immediately after takeoff, people complained of pain in their ears
Passengers nearly lost their hearing due to in-flight depressurization
On a flight of the German airline Lufthansa from Chicago to Frankfurt am Main on December 4, a mysterious incident occurred. Immediately after takeoff, passengers complained of pain in their ears.
The Boeing 747-8 aircraft gained an altitude of 7620 meters, after which it stopped rising into the sky. After 50 minutes of flight, the crew decided to return to Chicago. The airliner landed safely there 3 hours and 45 minutes after takeoff.
Oxygen masks were not issued due to the emergency, but some passengers complain that their hearing has not yet fully recovered.
Apparently, the cause of the incident was the failure of the pressurized cabin of the aircraft. This is a reinforced part of the fuselage structure, which has a sealing system on doors, hatches and sliding windows. She is responsible for ensuring that passengers can comfortably endure a long stay at a height.
