As many as 282 passengers on board a Delhi-bound flight of Air India from Mumbai had a harrowing time today after they were allegedly made to sit in the aircraft for over three hours without air conditioning following a technical glitch in the Boeing 777 plane.
"During this period, all the passengers remained seated in the glitch-hit plane," the source said.
A passenger who tweeted a photo from the flight, said that the air conditioning was not working for at least one and a half hours of the wait time.
When contacted, an Air India spokesperson said that the technical snag forced the airline to delay the departure of its Mumbai-Delhi flight today morning.
"Air India has ordered an inquiry to find out the glitch in the plane just before its departure," an Air India spokesperson said.
