Air India flight delayed. Bad news. Aviation minister on board, calls up CMD

It’s not everyday that you get to complain to the top executive in the aviation sector when your flight is delayed. But when he’s your co-passenger, you can. Read on to find out how this happened on a Delhi-Vijayawada flight yesterday.

Over 100 passengers waited an hour and a half yesterday for AI (Air India) 459, a Delhi-Vijayawada flight, to take off. Unfortunately for the airline, one of them was the civil aviation minister, P Ashok Gajapati Raju.

When passengers asked Raju about the delay, he asked Air India Chairman and Managing Director (CMD) Pradeep Kharola why the flight hadn’t left yet.

The flight took off 90 minutes after the scheduled time, and Air India suspended three staffers and issued a warning letter to the captain – for reaching the airport late.

That’s what Air India spokespeson GP Rao said happened, according to the news agency ANI.
