When he raised the issue with the cabin crew, they asked him to look for the cushion under the seat. Patnaik told HT, “The situation was causing inconvenience to other passengers who were boarding the flight, as my wife was standing in the aisle. When she raised the concern again with the cabin crew, they arranged for a spare cushion to be brought over by a ground staff member who then placed it on the seat.”
