Twenty-six passengers were asked to voluntarily deplane after a Paris-bound Air France aircraft suffered an unspecified “technical glitch” at the New Delhi airport in the wee hours of Wednesday.

The staff of Air France flight AF225 told passengers to disembark as their checked-in luggage would need to be offloaded for the plane to be able to take off.

However, it is not known if the deboarded passengers were flown out on the next flight to Paris, as is commonly done in such cases.
