The Indian aviation industry is in hot waters in recent times due to various reasons. After several episodes, notably of a passenger urinating on elderly woman and a flight taking off leaving back 50 passengers, another incident of mismanagement has come to fore. Now, the SpiceJet is in the eye of storm.

Agitated passenger shares video from airport

A SpiceJet flight, bound to fly from Mumbai to Goa, was delayed by over four hours Friday, after repeated rescheduling by the agency.

A Twitter video shared by a passenger named Shweta Sharma showed agitated passengers waiting at the Mumbai airport.

"SpiceJet flight SG455 (Bom to Goa)revised their flight timings multiple times and still delayed. Passengers waiting from 1pm at the airport.Initially flight was suppose to depart at 3:05pm,then 6:10pm &then 7:05pm and still we are at Mumbai Airport," Shweta said, attaching the video of waiting passengers.

SpiceJet, replying to the user, said: "Hi Shweta, please note, we always try our best to maintain departures as per schedule. However, at times, due to unavoidable reasons, we face delays. Please note, our team is working to expedite the departure and flight shall depart soon."

At the time of this report being prepared, there was no confirmation on whether the flight had finally taken off. The SpiceJet did not not specify the 'unavoidable reasons' for the delay.
