Dear Passenger, your Flt SG219 dtd 15-May-09 is delayed and will now depart at 0140 hrs from PUNE.

The fact was the flight started at around 0155 hrs on 16 – May – 09 instead of 23:10 hrs on 15 – May – 09 and i reached home at 04:55 hrs at my home in Chennai.

I’m not saying anything about how the Airlines treated us, what they offered us during our wait (or should i say what they could have offered or didn’t offer) et al here ……. Just that no more last flights from any city back to your home town at any cost is my decision.

  1. I had almost similar experience with same airlines at Chennai airport while coming back to Mumbai.

    Decided trying not to book thru them in future.

    The problem is that they have very few airplanes which take round and if it is late at any sector, you have a bad day. 🙂

    Ram: Very True …. they seem to be big time talking about their on-time records … but i guess that was not in the recent past in their performance.
