Air India (Delhi) flight AI 890 late on Sunday (January 5) did not go well. The flight was operating from Guwahati to Delhi with Airbus A320-231 VT-ESH (msn 469) with around 170 passengers and crew members. The flight diverted to Jaipur, India due to bad weather in Delhi. Unfortunately Jaipur’s  weather deteriorated too with fog but the crew elected to make an emergency landing in Jaipur due to low fuel. On landing the aircraft reportedly burst several tires and the aircraft veered off the runway . The left wing collided with an object according to reports. Part of the outer portion of the left wing was clipped off.
