Air India cancels Ahmedabad-Mumbai-London flight
Ahmedabad, 20 December, 2010

However many of them came to know about cancellation of flight when they reached the airport. Some other were contacted b Air India through SMS or call, but they complained that they were informed so late that it didn’t help much.
Air India issued a press release about cancellation of 20th December flight, but the release reached newspaper offices in the evening. The flight from Ahmedabad was to depart at 23.15.
Aid India in its release said:
“Air India flights AI 111 / AI 112 on the Delhi / London / Delhi sector and AI 130 / AI 131 on the Mumbai / London / Mumbai sector of December 20, 2010 are being held back at the originating stations.
