- GoFirst flight was going from New Delhi to Goa
- Offloaded from plane for misbehaving with crew
- Both foreign nationals in CISF custody
Another incident of in-flight harassment has come to the fore amidst the hue and cry over the incident of urinating on a female passenger in Air India. This time, two foreign tourists misbehaved with the female flight attendant in Go First flight. The incident took place on January 5 on GoFirst flight from Goa to Mumbai, where a foreign tourist insisted that one of the flight attendants sit with him and talk obscenely with the other. This incident was exposed by an air passenger named Tarun Shukla through one of his LinkedIn posts. He wrote, ‘The tourists were clearly Russian in appearance and were somewhat intoxicated.’
Both the passengers were taken off the plane and handed over to CISF.
An airline spokesperson said on Saturday that both the foreign nationals were offloaded from the aircraft upon receiving the complaint. The matter was also reported to the DGCA. The incident took place on the day when flight operations started from the new airport in Goa. Confirming this, GoFirst said that the incident happened in its GA-372 aircraft. The airline said in its statement, ‘Two passengers abused the crew member using objectionable language and made fun of them continuously. Although the crew member, showing humility, asked the foreign passengers not to use such language, but they did not agree. Other co-passengers sitting next to him were also feeling uncomfortable due to his misbehaviour. When he did not calm down, other passengers demanded to get him off the plane. In such a situation, both were taken off the plane in terms of security.

Significantly, on November 26 last year, in the business class of Air India’s New York-Delhi flight, Mishra allegedly urinated on his female co-passenger in her seventies in a drunken state. He was arrested from Bangalore on Saturday and brought to Delhi. He was reportedly hiding in a guest house in Sanjay Nagar, Bengaluru to avoid arrest.
