She didn’t want to sit in her dirty seat again, so she stood beside the toilet for almost 20 minutes. She was instructed to return to her seat after sitting in the cramped crew seat for an hour.

She was allocated a different crew seat two hours later, where she remained for the duration of the journey. Later, she found out from another traveller that some first-class seats were empty. “It’s obvious that the crew did not think that helping a worried guest was important. The personnel assured me at the end of the flight that they would bring me a wheelchair so I could get through customs as quickly as possible. But the wheelchair left me in a waiting area, and I waited there for thirty minutes before someone arrived to get me. In my Air India pyjamas and socks, I eventually had to through customs on my own and collect the luggage, she added.
