PV Sindhu slams airline ground-staff for rude behaviour
Shuttler PV Sindhu expressed her anger over the rude behaviour of an airline ground staff on her Twitter handle.
She tweeted that the airline ground staff behaved rudely over her kit bag when she was flying to Mumbai on Saturday.
“Sorry to say ..i had a very bad experience?when i was flying by 6E 608 flight to bombay on 4th nov the ground staff by name Mr ajeetesh(1/3),” Sindhu tweeted on Saturday.
“Ground staff (skipper) mr ajeetesh behaved very badly and rudely with me. When the air hostess Ms ashima tried to advise him to behave properly with the passenger (me) but to my surprise he behaved very rudely with her. If this type of people work for a rupted (sic) airline like indigo they will spoil their reputation @IndiGo6E,” she posted on Twitter.
According to a news agency, IndiGo, refuted the Olympic silver medallist’s claim in a statement.
“Ms P.V. Sindhu boarded flight 6E608 Hyderabad-Mumbai carrying oversized baggage which was not fitting into the overhead bin. Ms Sindhu was informed that it will be moved to cargo hold of the aircraft. This is the same policy we follow for all customers. Oversized baggage inside the cabin inconveniences other customers and can also be a safety hazard if it cannot be secured properly in the cabin.”
“During the entire conversation, the member of the IndiGo ground operations remained calm. After several requests to her manager, they finally consented to the removal of the bag from the cabin. We then placed the over-sized baggage in the cargo hold and was handed over to Ms Sindhu on arrival. We are extremely proud of Ms Sindhu’s sporting achievements and are grateful for the laurels she has won for our country. However, safety of our operations is paramount to IndiGo,” the statement added.
