2. EasyJet Leaves 19 Passengers On The Runway Citing The Aircraft Was Too Heavy

19 passengers were left on the runway by the British airline EasyJet because it was allegedly “too heavy” to take off. The Manchester Evening News said that the EasyJet flight was scheduled to take off at 9:45pm on Wednesday but was unable to do so until closer to 11:30pm.
The big aircraft, the short runway, and the weather conditions, according to the pilot, were the three main restrictions. Twenty passengers were asked to volunteer and decline to take off.
Additionally, he proposed a 500-euro reward for individuals who willingly decide to remain at the airport.
However, the incentive offered and the airline’s lack of preparation did not win over the passengers.

On the Kozhikode-Guruvayur route, there used to be frequent private bus service, which ran every 5–10 minutes. Only 13 private buses now run along this route, making passengers wait more than an hour to board another one if they miss one.
The cancellation of the permits for private buses traveling more than 140 kilometers, which went into effect on March 1st, is what the owners of private buses blame for the current situation. Elderly people and others traveling from remote areas to attend the Guruvayur temple would have significant inconveniences as a result of the lack of private buses.
