Mumbai, July 5: Yet another mid-air glitch in an aircraft of SpiceJet has surfaced after the outer pane of the flight’s windshield cracked while it was flying at around 23,000 feet on Tuesday.
Earlier today morning, a separate SpiceJet flight flying from Delhi to Dubai was diverted to Karachi in Pakistan as the fuel indicator started malfunctioning.
The later incident took place on SpiceJet flight SG-3324 operating from Kandla (Gujarat) to Mumbai by a turboprop Q400 aircraft.
As per official reports, the SpiceJet Q400 aircraft’s P2 (first officer pilot) side windshield outer pane cracked during the cruise on Tuesday.
Fortunately, the flight landed safely at Chhatrapati Shivaji Maharaj International Airport in Mumbai.

However, the exact cause of the malfunction has not been ascertained yet.
This is the second incident involving the airline on Tuesday. In the earlier incident, a Dubai-bound SpiceJet flight from Delhi, carrying more than 150 passengers was diverted to Karachi in Pakistan as the fuel indicator started malfunctioning.
