Recalling an incident that happened in July, Veteran actor Rishi Kapoor has denounced British Airways. The incident took place on July 23, when an Indian passenger and his family were allegedly asked for de-boarding a flight in the UK. The family was traveling from London to Berlin on a British Airways flight, along with their three-year-old son.
Following this, the actor added his own experience with the airline once which was not pleasant. He commented, “Racist. Don’t fly British Airways. We cannot be kicked around”. He also showed grief about the Berlin child incident wherein the cabin crew members threatened to throw the three-year-old son out of the window if he does not stop crying.
He said that he had stopped flying in British Airways. Being a first-class passenger, the cabin crew were rude and had shown attitude not once but twice. Rishi Kapoor said that it is always better to Fly Jet Airways or Emirates rather than flying British Airways. There is dignity. Rishi tweeted thus on Thursday.
The development comes after the passenger complained about the incident. He has been identified as A.P Pathak, a Joint Secretary level officer in the Ministry of Road Transport and Highways. Meanwhile, Suresh Prabhu, the Minister for Civil Aviation, has directed the aviation regulator to obtain a detailed report from British Airways over the incident.
