A Jet Airways flight from Mumbai to Jaipur on Tuesday evening was delayed for four hours. The passengers created nuisance after the aircraft's cooling system faced technical glitch. This made the flight that was scheduled to take off at 6.15 pm, depart only by 10pm.

The flight 9W 416 to Jaipur, as a result, landed in Jaipur at 11.45 pm instead of its expected time of arrival, 7.30 pm.

The Boeing 738, after getting its technical issue repaired, was further delayed as crewmembers on duty had consumed all of their working hours prescribed by the Director General of Civil Aviation (DGCA).

An airline's spokesperson said, “A Jet Airways flight 9W 416 was delayed initially due to a technical issue. Since the crew had extended their FDTL limits, a new set of crew was arranged. Jet Airways regrets the inconvenience caused to its guests."
