Initially, the airline had informed the passengers that the flight was delayed by half-an-hour but later on, it stated that the flight was cancelled due to technical reasons. The IndiGo flight 6E 8867 was scheduled to take off at 9:20 pm. It is operated by an Airbus A320
A passenger said, “Fifteen minutes later, IndiGo announced that it had cancelled the flight due to technical reasons,” a passenger said.
He also added, “The airline also informed the passengers the flight will now depart on Monday at 12.30.”
The passengers also said that the airline declined their request for providing food or hotel accommodations, alleging that the IndiGo staff was not at all cooperative.
