Veteran actor Rishi Kapoor, who has blatantly spoken about every issue on social media, called out British Airways this time. He termed the airline “racist” after an Indian passenger and his family members were asked to de-board a flight.
Talking about his own experience of flying with the airline twice, he said it was not pleasant.
On Thursday, the Mulk actor took to Twitter and wrote, “Racist. Don’t fly British Airways. We cannot be kicked around. Sad to hear about the Berlin child incident. I stopped flying British Airways after the cabin crew were rude and had the attitude not once but twice even after being a first class passenger. Fly Jet Airways or Emirates. There is dignity.”
On 23 July, a Joint Secretary level officer in the Union Ministry of Road Transport and Highways was travelling from London to Berlin with his family on a British Airways flight when they were asked to deboard the flight allegedly because his three-year-old son was crying onboard. The passenger, AP Pathak, complained that he and his family were discriminated against.
Civil Aviation Minister Suresh Prabhu has directed the aviation regulator to obtain a detailed report from British Airways over the incident.
