The IndiGo flight (6E-126) from Patna to Pune, carrying 162 passengers, faced a delay of over three hours on Wednesday. The first officer received distressing news about his grandmother’s passing after the aircraft had left the parking bay to prepare for takeoff.

Due to fog and poor visibility causing delays, the distraught first officer, upon learning of the sad news, decided not to proceed with the flight. The aircraft returned to the parking bay, and an alternate crew was arranged for the flight. Passengers were provided with refreshments during this period, according to an airport source.

The flight, initially scheduled to depart at 1:25 pm from Jay Prakash Narayan International Airport in Patna, eventually took off at 4:41 pm. As of 11:30 pm on Wednesday, IndiGo had not released any official statement regarding the incident.
