A Pune-Delhi Jet Airways flight delay left passengers stranded at the Pune airport for close to five hours.The scheduled 7:40 am flight finally took off at 11:45 am.

"The flight 9W 371 Pune- Delhi was delayed due to technical reasons," a statement from Jet Airways read.

The issue came to light after a Delhi-bound flyer tweeted saying she has been stuck at the airport since 4:30 am. While the airline did not provide the details of her journey, an airline representative said that the flight had to be grounded for technical reasons after which the runway was not available for two hours.

Around Sunday midnight, a GoAir flyer tweeted, "Goair has made us stand in line but they are not moving the line. Flight delayed. They themselves do not know when boarding will start and from where it will start. Such poor service."

"Network of all the web-check in machines are down," yet another user tweeted. Various other concerns were raised by the flyers as the airport authorities scrambled to manage the flights.
