Now facing significant challenges, the stranded passengers urgently call for intervention from higher authorities, expressing their distress over the situation.

Sources reveal that the main reason for passengers being left behind was the limited capacity of the aircraft, resulting in insufficient space for all travelers. Despite efforts to accommodate everyone, logistical constraints led to this unfortunate outcome.
