New Delhi: A passenger on board a Delhi-Chennai IndiGo flight 6E 6341 tried to open the emergency door just before take-off on Tuesday night endangering safety of all passengers.
The “unruly passenger” was handed over to the local authorities.
“A passenger traveling on flight 6E 6341 from Delhi to Chennai tried to open the emergency exit door cover prior to take-off.
