British Airways Crew Delays Flight for 13 Hours Because They Were Sleepy

A British Airways pilot delayed his flight from Delhi to London for 13 hours because he said he and his crew did not get enough sleep the night before.  The pilot claimed his hotel in Delhi was quite loud, and because of that he was unable to sleep.  As a safety measure, he said, he delayed the flight so the crew could get some rest.  Passengers were given hotel rooms but, due to a shortage of available hotels, had to share rooms with strangers.
