Air India flight delay ordeal for passengers
Manama, January 22, 2014
Passengers were stranded in Bahrain overnight after their Air India flight was delayed due to a technical error.
The flight was due to depart for Delhi, via Abu Dhabi, on Monday night, said a report in the Gulf Daily News (GDN), our sister publication.
However, it was cancelled and rescheduled for last night.
Passengers were initially taken to the terminal before being put up at the Gulf Gate Hotel, Manama, at the airline’s expense.
Airline country manager for Bahrain and Jordan Rajneesh Bagga confirmed the delay and said a technical team had flown in to fix the problem.
“We have only one flight from Bahrain to Delhi every Monday,” he said.
“We sent the passengers going to Abu Dhabi on Etihad Airways and the rest, who were going to Delhi, were put up at the Gulf Gate Hotel." - TradeArabia News Service
