FIR filed against SpiceJet crew for alleged misbehavior, airline refutes charges

A passenger filed a FIR on Thursday against the air carrier SpiceJet crew members after the crew allegedly misbehaved and threatened the passenger and his wife.
The incident happened on flight SG169 (Del-Bom) on March 1.
The airline has, however, denied all the claims made by passenger of misbehaving and threatening him and issued a statement reading that the passenger not only misbehaved with our crew and co-passengers but also threatened to call the media boasting his media background.
“The passenger had purchased SpiceMax seats at the airport at the time of check-in and hence pre-booking his meal of choice which is mandatory at least 24 hours before actual flight time was not possible. The passenger wanted a chicken tikka masala meal which was not the meal of the day on board as also specified on the menu card and hence, offered chicken methi malai which was the meal of the day. He, however, started shouting because he was not given the meal of his choice. This is when a senior crew member intervened but the passenger continued shouting and was not ready to listen,” said the Spice Jet statement.
