Passengers travel in Jet Airways flight from Delhi to Patna for 8 hours, only to land back in Delhi

New Delhi: 150 passengers travelling to Patna from Delhi had to wait for the flight to land for eight hours, only to find out that they had landed back where they took off from.
A Jet Airways flight on Friday landed back in New Delhi after eight hours due to non-availability of a taxiway at Patna airport, the police said on Saturday.
The Jet Airways flight 9W730 departed from Terminal 3 at the IGI at 2.30 pm but "due to non-availability of taxiway" at the Patna Airport the flight was diverted to Varanasi.
However, the flight landed back at Terminal 3 at 9.30 pm, Deputy Commissioner of Police Sanjay Bhatia said.
The passengers, for obvious reasons, were not happy at all. Delhi airport witnessed a ruckus on Friday night.
