Ezenwa also reacted to claims by some passengers that the airplane's door panel was loose all through the flight, and said that the emergency exit door of the airline’s aircraft are plug-type backed by pressure, which ordinary cannot fall off without tampering or conscious effort to open by a crew member or passenger.

“We also wish to enlighten the author that, when an aircraft is airborne, it is fully pressurized and there was no way the seat or door could have been ‘shaking’ as insinuated,” the statement explained.

It said further that a thorough inspection was however carried out on the said aircraft upon landing in Abuja, by the airline’s engineers and a team from the Nigerian Civil Aviation Authority (NCAA), and no issue was reported.

“We wish to apologise to our guests for any inconvenience such report may have caused and for the slight delay on the return service to Lagos.”

The statement concluded that a thorough investigation of the concerned passenger was ongoing.
