New Delhi: A drunk passenger allegedly urinated on the seat of a woman passenger onboard an Air India flight from New York to Delhi flight.
The incident came to light after the passenger’s daughter, Indrani Ghosh, in a series of tweets narrated the ordeal her mother had to go through. She said her mother was travelling alone in the flight AI102 and was traumatized because of the alleged incident.
“Disgraceful @airindiain yesterday on your flight AI102 from JFK to Delhi a drunk passenger removed his pants and peed on the seat my mother was sitting!!! She was travelling alone and is completely traumatized! Reply ASAP #AirIndia #Shameful,” she tweeted.

Giving further details about the incident, Ghosh added, “@airindiain when I called to make a complaint the usual call centre guy following the script asked me to go to the website and write a feedback!! Really FEEDBACK!”
Ghosh demanded stringent action against the drunk and saying “don’t you think by not taking action against such behavior the airline is giving him a free pass!!? By reporting such obscene and offensive behavior the airline can stop such person creating nuisance in future.”
Taking note of the matter, Minister of State for Civil Aviation Jayant Sinha has directed Air India to follow up on the case and report back to the Aviation Ministry and the Directorate General of Civil Aviation (DGCA).
“Please follow up immediately and report back to aviation ministry / DGCA. Very unfortunate that your mother had to go through this harrowing experience,” Sinha tweeted to Air India.
