Stranded passengers flown to Frankfurt

New Delhi: After being stranded for over two days at Delhi Airport as an Air India aircraft could not be repaired, about 300 Air India passengers were today flown to Frankfurt and Los Angeles by a relief plane.
A Boeing 747-400 aircraft, which was flown in from Mumbai to carry the 290 passengers to their destinations, took off at 0200 hours today, an Air India spokesperson said, adding about 100 more passengers travelling to Frankfurt and Los Angeles were also accommodated in this flight.
The passengers were stranded at Delhi airport as the aircraft which was to carry them developed fault in its weather radar before take-off and the state-owned carrier could not manage to get spare equipment to repair it.
