On Monday, social media went into a frenzy over political allegations that a Frankfurt-Delhi flight was delayed due to Punjab CM Bhagwant Mann.

Opposition leaders quoted media reports alleging that CM Mann was deplaned at Frankfurt airport as  he was too drunk to walk.

German airline Lufthansa later issued a statement that the delay was caused due to “delayed inbound flight  and an aircraft change”.

Lufthansa, however, did not make any comment on Bhagwant Mann’s alleged condition, citing privacy concerns.

The flight data of the Frankfurt airport & the aircraft suggests that the claims of change in aircraft & delayed inbound flight could be true.

The Lufthansa LH 760 from Frankfurt to New Delhi on September 17 was already flying late on its schedule.

The flight was scheduled to land at Frankfurt at 13.30 local time but it eventually landed at 14.19 at the German airport.

The aircraft was then used as the Frankfurt-New Delhi LH 760 flight  that took off at 15.52 local time.

Opposition leader Sukhbir Singh Badal also fired shots at Mann by calling the whole controversy a 'Shameful  Thing for Punjabis".

AAP spokesperson Malwinder Singh Kang condemned the allegations against Punjab CM.
