Kolkata : Bagdogra bound AirAsia flight courted another controversy, when some passengers got into an altercation with airline staff over deboarding them after the flight was delayed by over four hours, claimed a passenger.

The captain put the air-conditioning blower on full blast to scare the passengers to leave the plane, after passengers refused to deboard due to heavy rains outside.

The full blast of AC created a scary scene as heavy fog was created inside the plane and it was very suffocating, complained a passenger.

Some passengers on an AirAsia India flight from Kolkata to Bagdogra scheduled to depart at 9 am got into an altercation with airline staff over deplaning them after the flight was delayed, a passenger claimed.

Dipankar Ray, Executive Director (West Bengal), Indian Oil Corporation, who was also travelling in the same flight, complained of very "unprofessional and rude" behaviour from the airline staff.
