Air India - you gotta take responsibility of the passengers who booked your flight tickets. Thousands stranded at the airport for over 3 hours. No updates. No one to talk to. Terrible service. #airindia #outage #mumbait2 #sitasoftwareoutage pic.twitter.com/tuusueI4dG— Manish (@mani_8612) 27 April 2019

Perhaps #airindia took it too seriously when I bid tearful goodbye to my bed this morning. It's ok Maharaja, I do want to go to Shanghai. Get going. 🙄#ServerCrash pic.twitter.com/ow0unlWlwv
#airindia systems down globally since 3 am. Must be at least 2000 people camped in #Mumbai T2 #Airport. And more people coming in with #flights scheduled every half hour. Nightmare truly! pic.twitter.com/Bmpe7QCIUx— R Vasundara (@TheKalamWaliBai) 27 April 2019
