A passenger took off his garments twice and requested to kiss a crew member in a weird incident on an AirAsia flight from Delhi to Bengaluru earlier this week. According to an inside report being examined by the aviation ministry, the passenger stripped bare, broke a laptop computer and “requested an Italian smooch” from the crew.
On the flight on Monday, it began with the passenger approaching a cabin crew member with “request of Italian smooch, which was refused firmly”, stated the report by the Airports Authority of India (AAI).
The passenger was suggested to be seated and the crew checked if he was intoxicated or into some remedy, based on the report, which added that the person apologized and stated he was advantageous.
Later, a stewardess was shocked to seek out the person bare in his seat and requested him to dress, which he did. But when the aircraft landed, he stripped once more.
“On ground after he deplaned, guest again got undressed. Again he removed his clothes and broke his own laptop on ground in the presence of AAI security staff. On repeated requests, guest got dressed,” the report stated.
“Firstly, the unruly passenger started a heated argument with the cabin crew about life jackets. He later misbehaved with the crew onboard and suddenly took off all the clothes in the flight,” one other passenger is quoted as telling information company ANI.
The AirAsia crew filed a police criticism and Aviation Minister Hardeep Singh Puri is alleged to be contemplating a ban on the passenger.
The man, the report signifies, may face a 30-day ban throughout which he shall be on the no-fly record – as is the rule for disruptive passengers.
AirAsia stated the flier could have been drunk. “An inebriated guest onboard i5-722, from Bengaluru to New Delhi on April 6, 2021, behaved in an inappropriate manner including with a cabin crew on duty inflight,” an AirAsia India spokesperson stated.
