Air India pilots and crews threw punches at 30000 Ft in the sky. Allegations of physical and sexual assaults have been made. FIR has been lodged. Police is investigating.
This apparently happened in front of passengers.
Air India says that the safety of passengers was not at risk although some reports tell us that fight happened in the cockpit and then spilled over in the cabin.
Gross unprofessional, callous and irresponsible behaviour!
This is going to damage the brand Air India’s battered image and India in general.
Fast and fair investigation should be done and the guilty parties should be sacked summarily. In addition, they should face the criminal justice system for causing potential danger to the plane and passengers.
I travel with Air India in preference to other air lines.
I have to think twice now.
The Indian civil aviation minister, Mr Praful Patel and Air India board have serious job at their hands.
And I say “Air India, Tussi the great!”.
