Livid at missing an “important” appointment after the pilot of an Air India flight to Hyderabad did not turn up, Union Minister M Vankaiah Naidu today took to social media to castigate the state-run carrier, which ordered an inquiry into the episode.

Sources said Naidu was going to Hyderabad to attend a meeting on the ‘Swachh Bharat’ campaign.

Soon after Naidu’s tweets, the public carrier expressed regret for the inconvenience caused, while Civil Aviation Minister Ashok Gajapathi Raju said he had asked Air India to conduct an inquiry and take action.

Raju also spoke about the unacceptability of service disruptions.
