The 287-room Lemon Tree Premier hotel - one of 12 newly-built or planned hotels next to India's busiest airport at a cost totalling more than $2 billion - has been unable to open as it awaits security clearance from police worried about its proximity to an active runway. The cluster of hotels known as Aerocity, on a site bigger than 40 American football fields, was approved by the government six years ago. Reuters/Adnan Abidi
