Pune-Dubai SpiceJet Flight Gets Delayed By Over 10 Hrs; Causes Chaos In The Airport

Flight delays can be frustrating, but they are a relatively common occurrence in air travel. They can be frustrating for travellers, causing inconvenience, stress, and disruption to their plans. On Sunday night, passengers on a SpiceJet Airlines aircraft from Pune to Dubai were left stranded at the airport after a 10-hour delay.

SpiceJet Aircraft Causes A 10-Hr Delay

The SpiceJet aircraft SG51, which was supposed to leave the airport in Pune at 8 o’clock on June 11 instead took off at 6.10 o’clock on June 12. The Pune airport saw chaos, frustration and anger. The first message about the delay stated that it was due to operational reasons. The message said that the flight will take off at 1.30 am. However, the crew failed to state the reasons for this delay.  However, the flight took off at 6.10 am the next day. Many passengers have missed their onward connections.

Some even remarked that the SpiceJet Pune (PNQ) to Dubai (DXB) flight has not flown in time for more than six months with no help from the airlines or airport authorities. Many people had to wait a long duration with no access to the lounge area.

This 10-hour delay of SpiceJet Airlines flight from Pune to Dubai left passengers in chaos and dismay at the airport on Sunday night.

However, This Has Been An Ongoing Occurrence With SpiceJet

Flight delays can be emotionally and physically draining. Passengers may experience stress, frustration, and anxiety while waiting for updates or trying to make alternative arrangements. Prolonged periods of waiting in crowded airports can be tiring, and uncomfortable, and add to the overall frustration of the situation.

Moreover, it can disrupt the entire itinerary, leading to a cascade of inconveniences.  Rescheduling hotel accommodations, ground transportation, and other travel arrangements can be time-consuming and frustrating, particularly when delays occur at the start of a trip.

Recently, a SpiceJet flight from Delhi to Pune (SG185) was delayed by over 7 hours. The flight, which was supposed to take off at 9:20 am was first rescheduled three times and then, finally took off around 5.40 pm

Often, Twitter is flooded with passengers tweeting about their SpiceJet experiences. It is strange to see that today most of the passengers had terrible experiences, like a delay in the flight or no wheelchair assistance.
