The Air India divestment has been extended to 31 May from the earlier deadline of 14 May.

An inebriated Irish passenger flying in the business class of an Air India Mumbai-London flight allegedly manhandled a flight attendant after she was refused another drink on Saturday, 10 November, Times of India reported.

According to the report, the passenger, who also verbally abused the other flight attendants, was arrested after Flight AI-131 landed in Heathrow.

In a clip recorded by a member of the cabin crew, the passenger can be used hurling slurs more than 40 times.

“The woman was seated in 1J. Two quarter bottles of red wine later, she went to the lavatory in the economy class. She emerged in a cloud of smoke... but the smoke alarm didn’t set off,” a source told TOI.

The passenger turned unruly after she finished two more quarter bottles of wine and she also lashed out at the other business class passengers for being mute witnesses, the report said.

“The captain issued her a warning letter, which she read out loud to other passengers. She then came to the gallery and spat in the face of a crew member, before twisting her arm and injuring her,” the report quoted a source as saying.

The passenger’s identity was not known at the time of writing this report.
