MUMBAI – An Indian airline offloaded a passenger from a home flight after he tried to enter the cockpit simply to cost his cell phone.
A aircraft of IndiaGo was making ready to take off for Kolkata from Mumbai when the person, who some India media claimed was intoxicated, tried to enter the pilots’ space stating that he desires his cell phone to be charged.
Following the weird act, captain of the flight stopped the aircraft and handed over the passenger for violating the safety guidelines.
“Following normal working procedures the captain working 6E-395 flight from Mumbai to Kolkata (September 24, 2018) had initiated the offloading of the passenger on grounds of safety violation,” a spokesperson of the airline mentioned in an announcement.
The accused, 35, was taken to airport police station and he was launched after questioning.
Lately one other incident of such variety occurred when a passenger of Delhi-Patna flight tried to open the rear door of the aircraft mid-air. The person was stopped from doing it by the crew members after one other passenger raised the alarm.
