Passengers on a SpiceJet flight were forced to spend an entire night stuck in the airplane while it sat on the tarmac of an airport in Nagpur, India. According to the Times of India, SpiceJet Flight SG487 from Mumbai to Kolkata was forced to make an emergency landing Sunday night at Dr. Babasaheb Ambedkar International Airport in Nagpur due to a technical issue. Unfortunately for passengers, the Nagpur airport is not on SpiceJet's regular service list and had no support or ground staff on site when the plane landed. With the mechanic having to be flown to the aircraft's location, the 190 passengers onboard Flight SG487 were forced to stay inside the plane until the following morning. Instead of booking the passengers into a local hotel, they were not even granted airport access and instead were forced to stay on the plane.
