Mumbai, Nov 27 (IANS) Domestic and international flights in and out of Mumbai were operating normally Thursday, airport officials said here as the city woke up to its worst terrorist attack that saw at least 87 people being killed as armed men targeted seven places including the Taj and Oberoi hotels. Air India spokesperson Jitendra Bhargava added that security had been tightened in and around the airport and that all flights were running on time.
