What Happened Earlier : IndiGo placed a ban on flying Reddy on late Thursday evening, which was followed by four more airlines — Air India, Jet Airways, SpiceJet and GoAir — also barring him.On Friday, AirAsia and Vistara also barred the MP.
The TDP M.P from Anantapur was also said to have damaged a printer and misbehaved with IndiGo airline staff.
According to sources “The staff politely informed him that boarding for flight 6E-608 is closed and offered to accommodate Reddy in the subsequent flight,” IndiGo has said in a statement on Thursday.
“Reddy expressed his annoyance and soon raged against the staff using aggressive and abusive behaviour. IndiGo saw a footage aired by some media personnel — which shows visual representation of Reddy’s aggressive behaviour against the staff and further damaging the airport property.”
