IndiGo, Air India ban famous comedian Kunal Krama for stupid behaviour

Wednesday, January 29, 2020 • Telugu Comments

Stand-up comic Kunal Kamra on Tuesday created a ruckus onboard the Mumbai-Lucknow IndiGo flight by heckling Republic TV's Arnab Goswami. Even though Arnab refused to talk to him, Kunal called him names and resorted to labelling and hectoring.  

Such behaviour is not a serious thing in trains/buses but not so inside the plane.  Airlines have strict rules of conduct.  With Kunal creating a scene and potentially creating a disturbance inside the plane, IndiGo has barred him from flying for six months. Following IndiGo, Air India too banned Kunal "until further notice".  

Union Minister for Civil Aviation had taken note of the incident.  Hardeep Singh Puri said, "Offensive behaviour designed to provoke and create disturbance inside an aircraft is absolutely unacceptable and endangers the safety of air travellers. We are left with no option but to advise other airlines to impose similar restrictions on the person concerned."  

In its appeal to everyone, IndiGot wrote, "We wish to advise our passengers to refrain from indulging in personal slander whilst onboard, as this can potentially compromise the safety of fellow passengers." 

The incident is an eye-opener.  One's conduct has to be the best in flights.
