Kapil Sharma slammed Indigo airlines after they told him that his flight was delayed because the ‘pilot is stuck in traffic’.

Actor-comedian Kapil Sharma slammed Indigo airlines on Wednesday night after his flight was delayed. Kapil took to X, previously known as Twitter, and revealed he along with his fellow passengers were stuck in the transit bus close to an hour with no update about the travel. He claimed the airlines told him that the ‘pilot is stuck in traffic’ thus causing the delay. Kapil’s complain came hours after director Vivek Agnihotri faced a similar situation.

In his post, Kapil wrote, “Dear @IndiGo6E first you made us wait in the bus for 50 minz, and now your team is saying pilot is stuck in traffic, what ? Really ? we supposed to take off by 8 pm n it’s 9:20, still there is no pilot in cockpit, do you think these 180 passengers will fly in indigo again ? Never #indigo 6E 5149 #shameless.”

Earlier in the day, Vivek also said his Indigo flight was delayed by almost two hours. “Boarded the aircraft at 11.10 AM. It’s 12.40. 1.30 hrs and not a word of information from the captain or crew. Flights get delayed all over the world but such indifference to passengers is a unique quality that @IndiGo6E possesses. Also, isn’t there a way to know the delay? What are all these highly advanced AI softwares for? Why lock flyers in a tunnel with AC with hassled and lost crew?” The Kashmir Files director said.

“Toilets are filthy with tissue papers all over the floor. People screaming for water. Every hostess passing it on to another. I rarely fly Indigo and always found their crew-flyer interaction pathetic. Flyers getting angry is not their fault. Airlines and their crew ensures outrage with their indifference or arrogance. If flights get delayed beyond 30 mnts, shouldn’t airlines refund a part of airfare?” Vivek added.
