Flight delayed by 11 hours after pilot loses passport

Staff writer

A flight from Vietnam was hit by an 11-hour delay - after the pilot forgot his passport.

The 160 passengers who were due to board the flight were left stranded after the pilot was refused access to the airport.

The T'way Air flight TW122 was due to depart Ho Chi Minh City for Seoul at 10.35pm on Friday, but the search for a replacement pilot meant it didn't get off the ground until 9.40am on Saturday.

The airline has since opened an investigation.
