<p>On Sunday night, an unexpected delay to an Air India aircraft to Delhi left some 100 people, including three BJP MPs, stranded at the Rajkot airport in Gujarat.</p>
<p>The passengers were left in a state of anxiety when the pilot of the aircraft refused to take off because, according to Directorate General of Civil Aviation (DGCA) regulations, he had surpassed his working hours.<img decoding=”async” loading=”lazy” class=”alignnone wp-image-94651″ src=”https://www.theindiaprint.com/wp-content/uploads/2023/07/theindiaprint.com-rahul-responds-to-the-pm-by-saying-that-the-opposition-alliance-would-rebuild-the-idea-of-india-in-manipur-recent-photo-1690214397-11zon-750×422.png” alt=”” width=”1480″ height=”833″ srcset=”https://www.theindiaprint.com/wp-content/uploads/2023/07/theindiaprint.com-rahul-responds-to-the-pm-by-saying-that-the-opposition-alliance-would-rebuild-the-idea-of-india-in-manipur-recent-photo-1690214397-11zon-750×422.png 750w, https://www.theindiaprint.com/wp-content/uploads/2023/07/theindiaprint.com-rahul-responds-to-the-pm-by-saying-that-the-opposition-alliance-would-rebuild-the-idea-of-india-in-manipur-recent-photo-1690214397-11zon-1024×576.png 1024w, https://www.theindiaprint.com/wp-content/uploads/2023/07/theindiaprint.com-rahul-responds-to-the-pm-by-saying-that-the-opposition-alliance-would-rebuild-the-idea-of-india-in-manipur-recent-photo-1690214397-11zon-768×432.png 768w, https://www.theindiaprint.com/wp-content/uploads/2023/07/theindiaprint.com-rahul-responds-to-the-pm-by-saying-that-the-opposition-alliance-would-rebuild-the-idea-of-india-in-manipur-recent-photo-1690214397-11zon-390×220.png 390w, https://www.theindiaprint.com/wp-content/uploads/2023/07/theindiaprint.com-rahul-responds-to-the-pm-by-saying-that-the-opposition-alliance-would-rebuild-the-idea-of-india-in-manipur-recent-photo-1690214397-11zon-150×84.png 150w, https://www.theindiaprint.com/wp-content/uploads/2023/07/theindiaprint.com-rahul-responds-to-the-pm-by-saying-that-the-opposition-alliance-would-rebuild-the-idea-of-india-in-manipur-recent-photo-1690214397-11zon.png 1200w” sizes=”(max-width: 1480px) 100vw, 1480px” /></p>
<p>After the passengers boarded the Air India aircraft, which was supposed to take off at 8.30 p.m., the event started to take place late in the evening. Mohan Kundariya, Poonam Maadam, and Kesaridevsinh Jhala, a freshly elected member of the Rajya Sabha, were all travelers.</p>
<p>An Air India spokeswoman stated in a statement that AI404, which was scheduled to travel between Rajkot and Delhi late that evening on July 23, was delayed because of an operational problem.</p>
<p>“Thereafter, the cockpit crew was subject to Flight Duty Time Limit (FDTL) laws, making it impossible for them to conduct the flight in accordance with standards. According to the spokeswoman, the FDTL rule is non-negotiable and cannot be compromised in any way.</p>
<p>“Some passengers who needed to go to Delhi quickly were driven there before boarding an Air India or codeshare aircraft to Delhi. The remaining travelers received hotel accommodations, all meals, and the option to rearrange their reservations as desired with a full refund in case of cancellation, the representative said.</p>
<p>Around 20 to 25 students were left stranded earlier this month when Air India flight AI 186 from Vancouver to Delhi on July 2 was canceled owing to a technical problem.</p>
<p>The University of British Columbia (UBC) students had described their trauma, saying that the aircraft had been originally scheduled to leave from Vancouver airport at roughly 10.15 a.m. on July 2, but had been postponed twice before being canceled.</p>
