Actor Rishi Kapoor's recent experience with the British Airways was anything but pleasant. He called the British Airways “racist” after an Indian passenger and his family was allegedly asked to de-board a flight in the UK.
Racist. Dont fly British Airways.We cannot be kicked around. Sad to hear about the Berlin child incident. I stopped flying BA after the cabin crew were rude and had attitude not once but twice even after being a first class passenger. Fly Jetair or Emirates. There is dignity.— Rishi Kapoor (@chintskap) August 9, 2018
Rishi's tweet said, “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.”
The incident occurred on July 23. A family was traveling from London to Berlin on a British Airways flight. The passenger identified as A.P. Pathak is a Joint Secretary level officer in the Ministry of Road Transport and Highways. The development was made when he filed a complaint that he and his family were discriminated against on racial lines. Suresh Prabhu, Civil Aviation Minister, directed the aviation regulator to obtain a detailed report from the British Airways over the incident.
Recalling the previous bad experiences with the airline, wherein he was allegedly treated with rudeness and a bad attitude; despite 'being a first class passenger', Rishi Kapoor said that he had since stopped traveling with the airlines.
On the work front, Anubhav Sinha's Mulk starring Rishi Kapoor and Taapsee Pannu has received an amazing response.
