Air India flight from Bengaluru delayed, 206 stranded for 20 hours

Bengaluru: With Air India flight (AI 177), which was to fly to London from Bengaluru, developing a technical glitch on Saturday morning, 206 passengers on board were stranded at Kempegowda International Airport (KIA) for more than 20 hours.
The flight to London's Heathrow Airport was scheduled to depart from the KIA at 3.50am on Saturday. "Passengers were made to deboard due to a technical snag in the aircraft which needed to be inspected. Though the snag was rectified by Saturday, the flight couldn't take off due to a curfew at Heathrow during the night. It will now leave at 12:45am on Sunday. All 206 passengers were accommodated in a hotel close to the airport," an AI spokesperson told STOI .
