Man Banned From Airline For A Month After Urinating On Elderly Passenger During Flight

On November 26th, a 71-year-old woman boarded a flight from New York City to Delhi, India. After passengers were served their lunches, an inebriated man walked over to where the woman was seated. “He unzipped his pants, relieved himself, and continued to expose me to his private parts,” the woman recalls. “My clothes, shoes, and bags were completely soaked in urine.”

After urinating, the man remained standing there, still exposed, until another passenger demanded that he leave. When Air India crew members were alerted to what had occurred, they gave her a set of pajamas and disposable slippers to change into, Wion News reported.

Despite the man committing multiple crimes (including public indecency, public urinating, and battery), he was able to leave freely once the plane had landed. It wasn’t until the woman wrote a letter to the chairman of Tata Group, which owns Air India, that the incident was investigated. Weeks later, the airline has finally reported the man to police and has been banned him from using the airline for an underwhelming one month.
