“Faced the same issue with Indigo on 6th May at Jagdalpur airport with no access to a small canteen at the airport. Passengers were made to wait for four hours without anything to eat. Shame on Indigo," commented X user Sandip Jand on the post.

“You don't get free food on air why ask on land. In a small airport it's not possible to get so many meals," wrote another user.
