A FlyDubai flight FZ-330 from Karachi to Dubai has been delayed while passengers suffered while undergoing the agonizing wait at the Jinnah International Airport, reported 24NewsHD TV channel.
The passengers boarded the FlyDubai plane twice but on both occasions were offloaded as the flight officials did not finalize departure time after the plane’s engine developed a technical fault.
The flight was originally scheduled at 1:05 am in the wee hours of Saturday but now after over 10 hours the flight has not departed.
Passengers were fuming over the unprofessional behavior of the airline staff.
Sources said FlyDubai administration has now given 12 noon time for the departure of the flight.
The sources further claimed that another flight from Dubai has reached Karachi bringing in the engine parts required to repair the FlyDubai plane.
The helpless passengers spent the whole night in cold at the airport without any help from the airline.
