Union Parliamentary Affairs Minister M. Venkaiah Naidu on Tuesday expressed his frustration over missing an important appointment after his Air India flight was delayed.
“I had to travel to Hyderabad by Air India AI544 which is to depart at 1315 Hrs… was told on time.. reached airport by 1230 Hrs. Was informed at 1315hrs that flight was delayed as d pilot had not yet come. Waited up to 1345 Hrs, boarding didn’t start. returned 2 home,” Naidu said in a series of tweets.
Asserting that Air India should explain how such things are happening, he added that transparency and accountability are the need of the hour.
He further stated that the airline must take note that this is the age of competition and such mistakes could not be made.
