AirAsia apologises after mid-air emergency

Leah went on to say that passengers were not informed about the imminent danger and instead just watched frantic flight attendants rushing down the aisles of the plane

Passengers on board an AirAsia flight from Perth to Bali feared for the lives after the aircraft plunged 20,000 feet in a midair emergency.

According to media reports, the plane was said to have plunged two-thirds of its altitude from 32,000 feet to 10,000 feet about 25 minutes into the flight.

A passenger named Tracy, who was travelling with son Jayden, was quoted as saying: "My son said he didn't want to get on another flight but I've assured him it can't happen twice in a row".

A passenger who was only identified as Leah, interviewed by Nine News, said some passengers picked up their phones and sent text messages to family, believing that they were going to die.

The pilot made the decision to turn back and emergency services were placed on standby at Perth Airport.

Passengers told 9NEWS the ordeal was "terrifying" and they thought they were going to die. "It was really upsetting", she added.

Malcolm and Janet Canning say they were scared.

Terrified passengers were given oxygen masks.

In a statement, AirAsia said it was "fully committed" to the safety of passengers.

The flight took off from Perth - Bali bound at 11.15am this morning.

Most passengers got onto the next flight on Sunday with some hesitant to fly. "AirAsia Indonesia apologises for any inconvenience caused", that statement said.

"He said 'I hope you all say a prayer, I will be saying a prayer too and let's hope we all get back home safely",' she said at the time.

Video from passengers on board showed a cabin crew member yelling: "Passengers get down, get down" as oxygen masks dropped from the ceiling.
