For 150 passengers stranded for 13 hours in the airport at Tuxtla Gutiérrez, Chiapas, there was no compensation from Interjet for the delay: it was the weather’s fault.
Passengers report that Interjet agents initially announced a 20-minute delay for flight 2606, scheduled to leave at 8:55 pm for Mexico City, but still the plane didn’t appear.
Then they were advised that a flight was being redirected from Mérida to pick them up. But later passengers were told that didn’t work out because the pilots were tired and had gone directly to Mexico City instead.
It wasn’t until 1:00am that agents said their flight had been canceled and their departure had been rescheduled for 7:50 in the morning.
In the end, they didn’t leave until 10:15 after most of the passengers had spent at least 13 hours in the airport.
New regulations governing airlines’ customer service came into effect this week, but as Interjet told passengers yesterday, there would be no compensation because bad weather was to blame.
