In another incident of unruly air passenger behaviour, two men onboard a Delhi to Hyderabad SpiceJet flight were deboarded for 'harassing' the cabin crew.

The video of the incident where one of the passengers is shouting at the cabin crew has gone viral on social media.

The airline's officials said that after one of the passengers' unruly behaviour where another passenger was involved, the airline deplaned both of the flyers.

What happened: "On January 23, 2023, a SpiceJet wet-leased Corendon aircraft was scheduled to operate SG-8133 (Delhi - Hyderabad). During boarding at Delhi, one passenger behaved in an unruly and inappropriate manner, harassing and causing disturbance to the cabin crew. The crew informed the PIC and security staff of the same. The said passenger and a co-passenger, who were travelling together, were offloaded and handed over to the security team," a SpiceJet spokesperson said.

One passenger arrested: A passenger who misbehaved with a female crew member onboard a Delhi to Hyderabad SpiceJet flight has now been arrested. The passenger, identified as Absar Alam, was held after a complaint in connection with the case was received from the Spicejet security officer.

  • The Delhi Police said a case under section 354A has also been registered against the passenger.

Statement from police: Police said a PCR call was received at 4:39 pm, stating a passenger had molested a cabin crew onboard a SpiceJet flight number 8133 (from Delhi to Hyderabad). The PCR call was made by Sushant Srivastava, a security officer of SpiceJet airlines.

  • The passenger, Absar Alam, a resident of Delhi's Jamia Nagar, was travelling to Hyderabad with his family. During take-off, Alam misbehaved with one lady crew member, the police said.

Unruly air passengers: In the last few months we have seen many cases of unruly behaviour by Indian flyers.

  • A drunk male passenger peed on a female passenger on an Air India flight from New York to Delhi on November 26. According to reports, the incident took place shortly after lunch was served and the lights were switched off. The man walked to the seat of the woman passenger, unzipped his pants, and peed in front of her seat.
  • Reportedly, the man continued exposing his private parts after peeing and only moved when other passengers got involved.
  • On a recent Indigo flight, an air hostess and a passenger were seen arguing. The video of the altercation had gone viral on social media.
  • A person who was on the same flight revealed that some of the passengers on the flight were ill-mannered and very rude to the crew. "They called them servants and were after their life for food when they know that they are travelling on a low-budget airline," he wrote on Instagram.
  • On a Thai Smile flight from Bangkok to Kolkata on December 26 when a man refused to make his sight upright before takeoff, the flight staff could also not convince him to follow protocol. All of a sudden, a "male saviour" showed up and began indulging in a fistfight.
  • Soon this passenger was hounded by other men who began to slap and punch him from all directions.
