Air India has gained a lot of negative popularity thanks to the blunders that they make on their flights.

Air India committed one such blunder yet again when the passengers were left gasping for breath on a Delhi-bound Air India flight. The air conditioning system of the Air India flight from Bagdogra malfunctioned, leading to protests from the passengers.

The flight, AI-880, had 168 passengers and made a safe landing here.

An Air India spokesperson said the passengers complained of malfunctioning of the air conditioning system in the flight and they also protested.


According to a report, the airline's crew discovered the malfunction before the flight could take off. However, when the Flyers notified the Air India staff about the problem they said that the air conditioning would start working as soon as the flight takes off passengers were distraught when no solution was visible for two hours.

Debasmita, an asthma patient, said: "When I realised that the AC wasn't working and the oxygen masks were of no help, I asked for the oxygen cylinder since I could barely breathe. That's when I learnt that even the oxygen cylinder was empty."

The passengers have demanded action. Air India said that the problem was a technical matter and an investigation would be initiated, as reported by ANI.
