Delayed flight from Lucknow leaves flyers stranded in Delhi

Pune: A group of 13 passengers travelling to the city from Lucknow was allegedly mistreated by the officials of Jet Airways in Delhi airport on Wednesday after they missed their onward flight because of late arrival of their plane in the national capital.
Mayuraish Dandaicar, one of the passengers, said they were travelling from Lucknow to Delhi on a Jet flight and then had to travel to Pune. "The flight from Lucknow was delayed and it took off at 4.30pm instead of 3.40pm. For around half-an-hour, we sat in the aircraft before it took off and reached Delhi at 5.45pm. Our flight to Pune from Delhi at 5.30pm had left by then," he told TOI from Delhi.
A source said the delay was because of ATC congestion. According to Dandaicar, a corporate trainer, the 13 people included senior citizens, women and a kidney patient.
