Venkaiah Naidu fumes over Air India flight delay
New Delhi: Union Parliamentary Affairs Minister M. Venkaiah Naidu, on Tuesday, fumed over Air India airlines as he missed an important appointment after his 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 the pilot had not yet come. Waited up to 1345 Hrs, boarding didn’t start. Returned to home,” Naidu tweeted to express his frustration.
The minister has asked Air India to explain the reason of such delays. “Transparency and accountability are the need of the hour,” he said.
He further stated that the airline must take note that this is the age of competition and such mistakes could not be made.
