Several passengers of Air India faced a tough time at the Delhi airport today after two flights were inordinately delayed due to late arrival of aircraft and expiry of the flight timings of the crew members.

The incoming flights were primarily delayed due to foggy conditions and inclement weather in the eastern region, including airports like Kathmandu, Patna and Ranchi, airline officials said.

While the Delhi-Ranchi flight, scheduled to take off at 11 AM was delayed by five hours, the Bhopal flight was delayed by two hours from its scheduled time of 2 PM, they said.

The additional delay in the Ranchi flight was due to the cabin and cockpit crew running out of their flight duty time limitation (FDTL), with the late arrival of the aircraft, they said, adding that the stand-by crew was summoned to operate the outbound service.

The passengers were taken care of and sent to their repective destinations later, they added.
