SpiceJet flight SG 8133 (from Delhi to Bengaluru) was postponed on Tuesday 10th January 2023 on account of climate disruption in the network and the aircraft’s previous rotation, a spokesperson stated.
“As a result of this, the incoming crew members were not permitted to operate the subsequent flight to Bengaluru International airport and crew members were arranged from another incoming flight which was permitted as per duty time limitation,” the spokesperson stated in a report.
Passengers shared a video on social media
One of the passengers shared a video on social media of many co-passengers waiting at the aerobridge. In the video, some of them were heard asking for water.
According to the report, as passengers had completed the security check they were requested to wait at the aerobridge.
“Water was served to passengers who were on the lower floor around the aircraft door and aerobridge passage. The video was shot outside of the boarding gate which had limited access.
All passengers on the said flight were provided service recovery vouchers,” the statement from SpiceJet added. Further, the airline said that on average, the turnaround time for a Boeing aircraft is 40-45 minutes at Delhi International airport and for this particular flight, it was around twenty minutes more than the average turnaround time.
