Northwest Airlines flight arrives in Mumbai
Mumbai, Aug 25: Passengers aboard the Northwest Airlines flight 42, which was turned back to Amsterdam's Schiphol airport yesterday owing to ''worrying passenger behaviour'', arrived here last night.
Few passengers were brought here via Singapore in a Jet Airways flight while others arrived in the original Northwest Airlines flight 42 around 23:10 hours, almost 24 hours behind schedule.
Karan Singh, a 19-year-old who studies in Canada, was among those to arrive here in the Jet Airways flight.
While speaking to sources , Karan said he had seen nothing amiss in the Northwest Airlines flight as he was occupying the back seat and was sleeping.
However, when they reached Amsterdam, they realised that there was something amiss, Karan said. He was unsure as to how many passengers from the Northwest Airlines flight were brought back to Mumbai tonight in the Jet Airways plane. ''There were seven to eleven,'' he said.
They were taken to Singapore from where they boarded the Jet Airways flight for Mumbai, he said.
Jagatpal Singh was among those to arrive in the Northwest Airlines flight 42 which arrived a little later than the Jet Airways plane.
Mr Singh said he had also not noticed anything amiss but the twelve passengers, who were detained, were wearing ethnic dresses, he said.
