And passengers sat down on the tarmac subsequent to at least one airplane to eat a meal throughout a 12 hour delay.
Over 1,000 IndiGo flights a day have been delayed for every of the final a number of days. On one IndiGo flight from Goa to Delhi that was diverted to Mumbai, passengers had been allowed off of the plane for dinner, however they couldn’t go far. Right here they’re proven sitting subsequent to the plane throughout their meal.

In the meantime, on one other IndiGo flight from Delhi to Goa passengers boiled over throughout a ten hour delay. The primary flight crew timed out, exceeding their most obligation hours, and a brand new crew was summoned. Whereas a brand new pilot was making an announcement, one passenger stormed the cockpit and assaulted the crewmember.
A passenger punched an Indigo capt within the plane as he was making delay announcement. The man ran up from the final row and punched the brand new Capt who changed the earlier crew who crossed FDTL. Unbelievable ! @DGCAIndia @MoCA_GoI pic.twitter.com/SkdlpWbaDd

In line with IndiGo,
We’ve established an inside committee, and the incident has been referred to it. The committee will decide acceptable motion towards the passenger, together with the potential of putting him on the ‘No Fly Listing’ below the unruly behaviour class.
The airline is required to analyze and can after all ban the passenger. They won’t possible compensate the opposite passengers (and maybe not even the pilot, at this low price provider).
