MUS­CAT—MUMBAI FLIGHT CON­FU­SION

The Free Press Journal - - FRONT PAGE -

NEW DELHI: In a bizarre in­ci­dent, a pas­sen­ger who bought tick­ets from Air In­dia (AI) for Mus­cat, boarded a Mum­bai­bound AI flight in­stead and al­most missed his Mus­cat flight due to a huge con­fu­sion be­tween AI of­fi­cials. As per air­line sources, he had pur­chased an AI ticket from Delhi to Mus­cat. He pro­ceeded to the gates to catch his flight. But the board­ing card scan­ner was out of or­der and the AI of­fi­cials had to do the man­ual check­ing of board­ing passes of all the pas­sen­gers. Af­ter board­ing the flight, and hear­ing the an­nounce­ment in the plane, that he was on the Mumbai flight, he alerted the crew mem­bers. The flight was about to take off when it was called back by AI of­fi­cials. The pas­sen­ger then boarded the Mus­cat­bound flight, af­ter alight­ing from the Mumbai flight.
