NEW DELHI: According Times of india There was high drama at Delhi airport when passengers of a delayed Bengaluru-bound GoAir flight shot videos of the pilots walking towards the plane long after the scheduled departure time.
The flyers were waiting in the aerobridge after getting tired of sitting in the plane.
When the pilots objected to being clicked in the aerobridge, angry passengers told them that they would put the videos on social media. “One passenger went inside Airbus A-320 and told other flyers that the pilot had threatened to crash the plane if the videos were put on social media. This led to scare in the plane and demands for the crew to be changed,” a source said. When it was made clear that the pilots won’t be replaced, three passengers chose to walk off the plane.
GoAir denied that its pilots had made the crash remark. “GoAir strongly refutes any such allegation. After conducting due diligence and inquiry into the matter, (we) have ascertained that no such statement has been made by the Captain and this has been corroborated by ground and on-board staff. Of the checked-in 185 (passengers) and two infants, the flight finally departed with 182 and two infants,” a GoAir spokesman said.
