Air India is on the 1st radar for all the wrong reasons lately: Shardul Thakur complaining about luggage delay to actor Manoj Joshi slamming the Air India airlines for the “worst service” citing similar reasons.
But its embarrassing run continues as Lead Economist at World Bank, Vijayendra Rao is now the latest to criticize the flag carrier. Rao was flying Air India from Delhi to San Francisco when he allegedly faced a 13-hour delay among other nightmares on the trans-Pacific flight.
“Flew@airindiain DEL to SFO. Wonderful flight: Delayed by 13 hours, so I had more time with family. Food was inedible, so I ate less. The seat next to me was broken and unoccupied, so I had more room to stretch.
- In-flight entertainment did not work, so I slept more,” the economist wrote in a tongue-in-cheek Twitter post.
“Dear Mr. Rao, we truly understand the inconvenience faced by you and would like to confirm that your feedback has been shared with the relevant teams for internal actions and review,” it stated.
