    Default While / Although

    1) While passengers said the landing in Delhi came as a huge relief, the drama did not end there.

    Can the above mentioned sentence can be rewritten as:

    Although passengers said the landing in Delhi came as a huge relief; however, the drama did not end there.

    Regards

    Default Re: While / Although

    No.

    In 1 you can change 'while' to 'although'.

    You can start 2 with 'The passengers. . . '

    Do not use 'although' and 'however' in the same sentence.
