This photo shows the cause of the first of 3 delays in my attempt to go from Hong Kong to Chennai today. Aviation fuel had spilled from the underground re-fuelling point by our aircraft and had to be cleared up before we could finish loading. The chap in red is mopping up the last of it using old rags! On arrival in Chennai we were delayed on the aircraft for over 30 minutes when the motorised disembarkation steps broke down on the way out to us. Finally, in the hotel taxi from the airport, a puncture waylaid us for another similar period. Never mind, I’m looking forward to exploring Chennai in the blistering heat tomorrow.
