Indian wet times

DELHI AIRPORT has suffered from part of the new terminal 1D’s roof blowing off during a storm, according to reports in the Indian newspapers.  Rain water poured in and many essential services came to a halt.  There was almost knee-deep water in the departures level and many parts of the ground floor were also inaccessible.  The arrivals area was completely flooded as were many roads around the area.  An airport spokesperson said that over 20 flights were delayed and ten flights diverted. The airport, Indira Gandhi International, is now back to normal.  The introductory problems at Heathrow T5 are well documented but teething difficulties are part of the recent history of airports including Denver (baggage handling), Paris (roof collapse) and Bangkok (total chaos).
