Passengers on an Air India flight from Baroda-New Delhi experienced mayhem after its air conditioner stopped working in flight, which caused extreme discomfiture to all those aboard. While no one reportedly took ill, still the flyers were furious at the crew as they knew that the AC was not on working order, according to Times Now. Passengers travelling on the airline have demanded action, whereas AI is yet to react to the incident. According to PTI, there were 168 passenger in AI-880 flight.  Though the flight landed safely, but passengers had protested against the malfunctioning of the air conditioner.

The anger could also be seen on Twitter, where passengers complained about the problem. The flight, which had left from  Bagdora airport around 6pm, reached the destination on time. Earlier in the day, in a separate incident, the Air India employees were planning to hold a general body meeting to discuss the affects of the privistation on them, and also to organise a movement against the government’s decision to pivatise the national carrier.

Watch the video here:

“The meeting will be held to enlighten the rank and file about the privatisation of Air India and how it will affect them. This will also be a forum to organise them as we plan a movement against the privatisation of the national carrier,” said a member of the ACEU. “The move is clearly aimed at benefiting private airlines. If the government is so concerned about the taxpayers’ money, then why does it not recover Rs 7.5 lakh crore borrowed by corporates from public sector banks?” the member asked, as reported by PTI.
