Why Was an Air Hostess ‘Grounded’? Well, She’s the Prez’s Daughter

Being related to someone influential has its perks. However, the same can’t be said for President Ram Nath Kovind’s daughter.

An air hostess with Air India, Swati has been assigned ground duties due to security reasons, according to the airline’s spokesperson.

Swati, who doesn't use a surname, was a flight attendant on Air India's long-haul Boeing 787 and Boeing 777 flights, but for nearly a month now, she has been deputed with the airline’s integration department in Delhi, the official said.

As the President’s daughter, I don’t think she can fly as a crew with security personnel around. It is not possible to block so many passenger seats.

The integration department oversees human resource integration of erstwhile Indian Airlines and Air India since the airlines merged in 2007.
