The aircraft was carrying 145 passengers aboard, according to news portals such as Perth News and TV stations such as 7News and Nine News and they complained that those 25 minutes into the three-hour and 45-minute flight when the emergency situation occurred the crews “were of no help at all” to them.
Although the aircraft turned around and landed safely in Perth where passengers later boarded another aircraft provided by the low-cost carrier.

A passenger Clare Askew as quoted by Australian media outlets said that why the panic escalated was because of the cabin crews were screaming and “looked tearful and shocked” during the incident. “Now, I get it... but we looked to them for reassurance and we didn’t get any, we were more worried because of how panicked they were,” she told Australian reporters.
Leah, another passenger interviewed by Nine News, said some passengers believed that they were going to die such that they picked up their phones and sent text messages to their families.
She said “I actually picked up my phone and sent a text message to my family, just hoping that they would get it. We were all pretty much saying goodbye to each other. It was really upsetting”.
While another passenger complained that the flight's pilot did not address the passengers until after the flight had made the turnaround.

Aviation experts, however told the New Straits Times that it's standard operating procedure for the pilot to prioritize that the aircraft and everyone on board were out of danger over any procedure in such situations.
