<b>Six AI flights delayed, hours of agony for passengers </b><!--QuoteBegin-->QUOTE<!--QuoteEBegin--> 
New Delhi/Kozhikode, Nov 18: At least six Air India flights, five of them in Delhi, were delayed for several hours on Sunday, sparking anger and protests by many of the over a thousand passengers.

The Amritsar-Delhi-Birmingham-Toronto, Delhi-Abu Dhabi- Muscat, Delhi-Bangkok-Shanghai, Delhi-London-New York and Delhi-Dubai flights were delayed by five to 24 hours due to technical difficulties, shortage of pilots and flight duty time limitation.

The Air India express flight from Dubai arrived 24 hours behind schedule due to fog at Kozhikode airport this morning leading to protest by the <b>passengers, among whom was Kerala minister and Muslim league leader M K Muneer</b>.

<b>In Delhi, the passengers had a harrowing time since yesterday without food, water and sleep following hours of delay with Air India officials "hiding" to avoid passengers'</b> fury.

"I have been here since last evening... It is almost 24 hours." Md Aftab, a Lucknow resident, said.

He said the most frustrating part of his "long and bad experience" was that no Air India official was available to give the passengers a correct picture of the situation.

When some passengers, angry over the long delay, protested and wanted explanations, no senior Air India official came forward to pacify them.

"Only some very junior officials are present in the airport who has no information and authority," Jagdish Sharma, another passenger, said.

The Air India assistance booth, located at the departure lounge of the international airport, was totally deserted.

An AI spokesman claimed that the Delhi flights were delayed between one to five hours.

"Five Air India flights got delayed at the Delhi Airport owing to various reasons. The management while regretting the inconvenience caused to the passengers has decided to look into the technical reasons and also importantly the congestion at the check-in counters and unavailability of the bay that led to delay in departure of these flights," the spokesman said.

Meanwhile, a statement issued by Air India said<b>, "flight hours of the pilot on duty were over and according to DGCA norms, he could not fly any longer. A shortage of pilots on international market is the reason we cannot have a spare set of pilots". </b>

<b>While the Dubai flight is delayed by nearly 24 hours, the Amritsar-Delhi-Birmingham-Toronto flight departed after about 12 hours.</b>

<b>The Delhi-Bangkok-Shanghai has left after five hours delay while Delhi-London-New York also left after delay of six hours, </b>airport sources said.

"I have decided not to fly again with Air India. They follow no rule, no regulations and have no standards. They offered no food, water and accommodation, a must for any air carrier to give to passengers in case of delay," A H Singh, a London resident, said.
