IndiGo passengers have faced multiple flight delays in recent months.

The passengers claimed that even after boarding the aircraft in New Delhi, they were forced to wait for the pilot for ninety minutes.

On Wednesday, Flight 6E 6622 was scheduled to depart Delhi at 7:10 p.m. and arrive in Bengaluru at 9:50 p.m. Rather, it departed on Thursday at 2.57 am and touched down in Bengaluru at 5.45 am.

Hebbal resident Vandana Matharoo, who works for a multinational company, and her two small boys boarded the IndiGo flight. She narrated the ordeal they faced by stating that the flight was scheduled to depart around 8.15 pm, according to a message they received a few hours prior to departure. But the boarding didn’t happen until after 8 o’clock.

A handful of them checked in at the desk, and they were informed that they may board the next flight that was scheduled to land shortly. At 9.30 pm, when they checked once more, they discovered that the flight had indeed left for Jaipur.

A month ago, actor and comedian, Kapil Sharma expressed his dissatisfaction with IndiGo Airlines. Sharma said on social media X that he and the other passengers were left waiting for information regarding their journey for about an hour while stuck in a transit vehicle. Sharmal claims the airline said the pilot was delayed because of traffic.

Director Vivek Agnihotri ran into a similar predicament a few hours before Kapil Sharma lodged his complaint. Agnihotri reported that his IndiGo aircraft was delayed by over two hours earlier in the day.
