Well, this was an interesting one..

The aircraft (VT-SZL, Boeing 737-900ER) was on approach from Bangkok in to Kolkata as SG83...and presumably a bird hit led to a cracked windshield.

I will call out SpiceJet on their inability to let passengers know that it would be a huge delay, and that they increased the delay in thirty minute increments.

That however, did not exactly give the passengers to get violent and verbally threatening...

Lovely TR as usual, Sir!
Once again, beautiful winglet pics, beautiful aircraft spotting pics and food pics!
- LGBT sandwich...hmm...
- irate pax: I feel ashamed in such circumstances. I think you have described this in detail, kudos to you for that.
- SG on their part, handled it as you have described, more decently than perhaps an LCC would have. The free food was a good gesture.
- Reading this and seeing food pics and descriptions early in the morning means...gluttony for me right away!
Thanks for a lovely report, I look forward to more!
Cheers, Sumantra.

Thank you for your detailed comments as always, sir!

For once when the attention was on the passengers on the plane, as opposed to the flight itself...

I was quite embarrassed by the attitude of the passengers too. A sad sad situation....

Please let me reduce your appetite by sharing an IndiGo TR Wink

Do stay tuned!
