He added, “Then it was announced that the flight would depart at 11:45 pm, after which there were no announcements being made. At 12:30 am it was announced that there would be a further delay and the flight would depart at 1:15 am. After boarding the flight around 1:45 am, it seemed like the issue was still festering outside, the flight did not depart till 2 am. No explanations were offered by the airline staff, except some lame excuses that the delay was because of ‘operational reasons.’ No refreshments or even water was offered to the passengers. Women passengers were highly concerned as to how they would reach home after reaching Pune at such an odd time.”

The passenger further elaborated, “No senior staff of the airline was present to address the concerns of the passengers. The only statement made by the airline staff was that passengers could give a ‘feedback’ on this. At this point, passengers got highly agitated and a huge commotion happened at the boarding gate with some passengers refusing to board the flight and deciding to stage a sit-in protest. Soon, CISF personnel tried to pacify the passengers.”

Speaking further, the passenger said, “Allegedly the whole confrontation was triggered by one of the airline staff daring the passengers to do what they want about the situation, that’s when the whole issue exploded. No help or refreshment of any sort was given by the airline to even elderly people or women with kids. Passengers requested that the airline to make arrangements for their commute to the destination upon landing as the flight would land at 3 am and no transport would be available, and if so, at exorbitant rates!”

He added, “Passengers apart from suffering mental harassment, even bore financial losses. Passengers demanded a DGCA inquiry against the airline. This apathy on the part of the airline has highly angered passengers, most of whom have decided to boycott the airline due to its callous attitude.”
