New Delhi: A passenger who urinated on a woman in an inebriated condition in Air India’s business class in November has been placed on a no-fly list.
On November 26, the passenger had allegedly urinated on an Air India flight from New York to Delhi at a passenger.
It is said that the incident took place when the lights were off after lunch. After urinating, the man stood until another passenger asked him to leave.
The woman complained to the crew and told them that her clothes, shoes and bags were drenched in urine. The crew allegedly gave her clothes and slippers and asked her to return to her seat.
According to the information, the airline took action after the woman wrote a letter to Tata Group Chairman N Chandrasekaran.
A police complaint has been lodged against the man, an Air India official said.
“Air India has set up an internal committee and recommended putting the male passenger on the no-fly list,” an official said.
The woman has reportedly said in her letter that she did not want to go back to the dirty seat, so she was given a crew seat. After an hour, she was asked to return to the seat, which was later covered with sheets, but still smelled bad.
Later, she was given another crew seat, where she spent the rest of her flight time.
The woman alleged that despite several business class seats being vacant, she was not given another cabin seat. She has alleged that after the plane landed in Delhi, the accused passenger was allowed to leave without any hindrance.
