New Delhi’s ‘Gas Chamber’ Smog Stops United Airlines Flights to the City

Toxic smog that, according to one official, has turned India’s capital city into a ‘gas chamber,’ has caused United Airlines to cancel “flights to New Delhi until the air gets better.”

In United’s view, “the Indian capital’s smog concerns are on par with environmental disasters like hurricanes and volcanoes — a risk to be avoided. The company said it was letting passengers switch flights without charge or helping them find seats on other carriers.”
