LUCKNOW: Rain and dense cloud cover hit arrival of flights and trains in Lucknow. While more than a dozen trains, including prominent ones, arrived up to 14 hours late on Saturday, eight flights were delayed by two hours. Passengers had to spend hours at airport and railway stations in wait for their journeys to begin.
According to sources at Amausi airport, the flights arrived late due to rainy weather conditions in north India. However, there were no cancellations or flight diversions. Delhi-Lucknow 6E 174 IndiGo Airlines flight was late by 2.30 hours, AI 431 Air India by 2 hours, 6E 943 IndiGo Airlines by 1.30 hours, G8 268 GoAir and AI811 Air India by an hour each, 9W366 Jet Airways by 50
minutes, AI 625 Air India by 40 minutes and Srinagar-Lucknow 6E 576 IndiGo by 30 minutes.
Senior railway officials said that waterlogging on tracks due to heavy rainfall in Uttar Pradesh and Delhi region delayed many trains.
Saryu Yamuna Express was late by 14 hours, Shaheed Express by 13 hours, Yashwantpur-Gorakhpur Express and Porbandar-Muzaffarpur Express by 7 hours each, Farakka Express by 6 hours, Mumbai Gorakhpur Express Kumbh Express, Padmawat Express and Amrapali Express by 5 hours and Rajdhani Express 4 hours.
"The flight departed two hours late and I missed an important official meeting as I arrived over 2.30 hours late in Lucknow," said Yogesh Shekhawat who arrived from Delhi in an IndiGo flight. "I missed the marriage of my friend as Shaheed Express was running 13 hours late," said Anjum Patel from Amritsar.

    @all: At this time, the PNR Forum is functioning again, albeit at a greatly reduced volume and efficiency. Refreshing PNRs is a very cumbersome affair.

    There are some minor changes to the PNR Forum: 1. The main PNR feed will only show UN-predicted (by you) PNRs which are coming in. However, if there are replies, the PNR will show and will bubble to the top. Once you predict the PNR, it will go away from the main...
