Checks by newsheadline247 indicate the delay was not because of technical problems but for received information of hours of heavy rain in Abuja on Friday.
The passengers who had been delayed for hours consequently became impatient and protested heavily because the airline has refused to inform them on the exact reasons for the delay.
A source informed newsheadline247 Med-View airlines gave up to the mounting protests and pressures from passengers who were keen to be in Abuja as per their respective travelling schedule.
A passenger within also informed ‘the journey was smooth’ till the flight was about to land in Abuja.
“It took the pilot over 45 minutes to battle the deadly turbulence airborne, the female pilot is a superwoman, she fought it out to safe our lives, it was a terrible and scary experience;” said the passenger.
Another passenger revealed it was ‘the worst moment’ of his over twenty years of air travelling experience.
