The airline was examining the creation of no-fly list of unruly passengers on the lines of other carriers after a Sena MP reportedly hit an Air India employee repeatedly with his footwear as he was not allotted a business class seat on an all economy flight. This was one of the unruly behaviour in the air and that warranted to no-fly list to curtail misbehaviour on flight by the passengers with staff members including the crew. Previous to this incident, the airline authorities did not pay much heed to the fact and try to pacify the passenger and conducted an inquiry against the staff to hush up the matter. Now a bold and purposeful decision is taken and in the last eight months time, nobody was put on the no-fly list and that is an enviable record. It is high time to teach a lesson or two to the erring passengers to keep the decorum of the air carrier and put a check on the unruly behaviour of the passenger in the air and also in the airport. It is a right disciplinary measure indeed.
