Air India Express Delays Mumbai-Lucknow Flight By 10 Hours Due To Bad Weather

 Mumbai: Air India Express on Saturday rescheduled its Lucknow-bound flight from Mumbai by 10 hours, citing "operational reasons," triggering protests and slogan shouting against the Tata Group-owned carrier by some of the affected passengers, a source said.

Air India Express flight AIX-2773 was scheduled to depart from Mumbai at 9.19 pm on Saturday but the airline informed passengers at the last moment that the departure was revised to 7.15 am on Sunday, he said.

Air India Express, in a late evening statement, said it was forced to revise the timing of its flight 'due to inclement weather over Delhi this (Saturday) evening".

"Due to inclement weather over Delhi this evening, a number of flights were diverted, including our Guwahati-Delhi flight, which was diverted to Lucknow. Subsequent flights from Delhi and Mumbai (including Lucknow flight) have also been rescheduled due to the diversion," the Air India Express spokesperson said in the statement.

"We apologise for the inconvenience to our guests due to circumstances beyond our control," the airline added.
