The 55-year-old was able to check-in and board the flight and was waved through a stopover at Dubai on to New Delhi before the error was picked up, according to Manchester Evening News.
An Indian-origin woman has managed to travel to New Delhi from the United Kingdom via Dubai on her husband's passport.
"Its scary and worrying that people arent checking properly", she told the newspaper.
'The fact they say they are so strict on security in airports but you can do this in 2018 is bad. Moreover, Modha had a stop-over in Dubai before she flew to India and the need to show her passport did not arise as she has an Overseas Citizenship of India card. "It is awful. At check-in, the staff member even made me move stuff from one bag to another because it was 2 kg over and yet let me travel with the wrong passport", she was quoted saying.
The mistake was only discovered when she had already flown more than 4,200 miles to Delhi and tried to fill out an immigration form. It added that its 'usual high standards were not followed'.Читайте также: Warriors sale about to be confirmed
Mrs Modha then reportedly had to strand at Dubai airport overnight until the airline could get her passport on the next flight from Manchester. The businesswoman, who runs Alankar House bridal shop in Rusholme, Greater Manchester, then had to book another flight to Delhi. "At check-in, the staff member even made me move stuff from one bag to another because it was 2 kg over? and yet let me travel with the wrong passport", she said.
'She was very, very anxious, ' the relative said. "Imagine getting all the way to (India) and realising you had used someone else's passport".
If it had been noticed at check-in, Mrs Modha would have had time to retrieve her own passport as she had arrived at the airport three hours before her flight was scheduled to depart. "The fact that they say they are so strict on security in airports but you can do this in 2018 is awful".
