New Delhi : At Delhi’s Indira Gandhi International (IGI) airport on Friday, a group of irate passengers caused a commotion due to a protracted delay in a SpiceJet flight that was headed for Patna.

The Patna-bound Spicejet airline flight number SG-8721 was delayed by hours “due to the late arrival of the incoming aircraft,” which infuriated a group of passengers waiting at a domestic boarding gate at the IGI airport at around 3 p.m.

“SpiceJet aircraft SG 8721 from Delhi to Patna has arrived at its destination. The departure time of the flight was changed last night, and passengers were promptly notified of the new departure time at 12.40 a.m. last night so that they may make appropriate travel arrangements to the airport. We apologize any trouble this has caused our passengers,” the airline added.

Earlier, on November 29, in a social media post that quickly gained traction, comedian Kapil Sharma expressed frustration over the significant delay of IndiGo Flight 6E 5149. “Dear @IndiGo6E, first you made us wait in the bus for 50 minz, and now your team is saying the pilot is stuck in traffic, what? Really?” Sharma wrote on X.

“We were supposed to take off by 8 pm, and it’s 9:20; still, there is no pilot in the cockpit. Do you think these 180 passengers will fly IndiGo again? Never #indigo6E5149,” he posted.

However, in a statement issued by the airline, it said IndiGo flight 6E 5149 from Chennai to Mumbai on November 29 was delayed due to operational reasons. “Passengers were kept informed about the delay. We sincerely regret the inconvenience caused,” it said.
