india Updated: Dec 25, 2007 19:56 IST

Passengers of a Gulf-bound flight on Tuesday held a protest against the flight being rescheduled at the Karipur International Airport in Kozhikode.

Air India Express flight to Jeddah, originally scheduled to leave at 11 am, could not take off owing to "technical reasons", airport sources said.

Irked by the "last minute" announcement, the passengers initially refused accommodation in nearby hotels and raised slogans against the National carrier, they said.

However, the passengers soon dispersed after being assured by the Airline officials that the flight would depart at 2 pm, the sources added.
