2 foreign tourists deboarded from Go First flight for misbehaving with crew

Poulomi Saha: Two foreign tourists were deboarded for misbehaving verbally abusing the cabin crew, sources in Go First told India Today on Saturday. The incident took place on January 5 on a Go First flight from Goa to Mumbai and the two were made to deboard in Goa before takeoff.

One of the two passengers allegedly asked a cabin crew member to sit next to him during the security briefing. The matter has now been reported to the Directorate General of Civil Aviation.

This incident comes amid the recent uproar over Air India flyers peeing on their female co-passengers.

Two back-to-back incidents that happened on Air India flights have been making the headlines recently. In the first case, a drunk passenger on an Air India flight from New York to Delhi urinated on a female passenger.

The inebriated man walked over to the victim's seat just after lunch when the lights were turned off. He then unzipped his pants and flashed his private parts to her. He reportedly stood there even after urinating, until one of his co-passengers asked him to leave.

The man, identified as Shankar Mishra was arrested from Bengaluru by Delhi Police and has been sent to judicial custody till January 21. He was also fired from his company, Wells Fargo, following the incident. Air India also imposed a 30-day travel ban on Mishra and an internal probe has been initiated to investigate if there were lapses in handling the situation by the crew.

A few days later after the first incident surfaced, a drunk man allegedly urinated on the blanket of a female passenger on a Paris-Delhi Air India flight. The man was apprehended by the Central Industrial Security Force (CISF) as soon as he deboarded the plane but was later allowed to leave after the two passengers had a "mutual compromise" and the accused tendered a "written apology".
