Over 150 passengers were stranded at Kuwait airport for four days after several flights to Mumbai were cancelled.
The passengers, mostly Indians, were flying in from different destinations and were scheduled to board the connecting Kuwait Airways flights to Mumbai.
The stranded passengers have complained to the Consulate General of Kuwait in Mumbai and Kuwait Airways that they were discriminated against during their wait in Kuwait.
“I was returning from New York on June 11 and was supposed to take a connecting flight to Mumbai on Monday. When we had queued up to board the plane, we were told that our flight to Mumbai has been cancelled.
The next six hours were the worst time of our lives,” said an affected passenger Dr Nimesh Shah.
