Renowned actor Radhika Apte recently found herself in an infuriating situation as she, along with several other passengers, was locked inside an aerobridge by an airline, sparking justifiable frustration.
Taking to Instagram, Apte, 38, shared the distressing incident, choosing not to name the airline or the airport involved. She recounted an 8.30 am flight that experienced an unexplained delay, causing inconvenience to the passengers.
Around 10 am, the airline announced the commencement of boarding and instructed passengers to gather on the bridge connecting the airport to the plane. To the dismay of those on board, the airline staff then locked the aerobridge, leaving passengers stranded without access to water or restroom facilities.
Apte’s Instagram post, shared at 10:50 am, highlighted the passengers’ plight, having endured over an hour of confinement in the aerobridge. The incident sheds light on the challenges faced by passengers when airlines fail to communicate effectively and prioritize customer welfare during delays.
The frustration expressed by Radhika Apte resonates with the larger issue of accountability within the airline industry, emphasizing the need for improved communication and passenger-centric measures to ensure a more seamless and considerate travel experience for all.
