BJP leader gets ‘old, broken’ seat on Air India flight from Delhi to Dubai, says ‘most pathetic business class ever’

Apr 15, 2024 12:18 PM IST

The BJP leader claimed that at the time of booking the Air India flight from Delhi to Dubai, a new plane with a cabin was featured.

BJP leader Sudhanshu Mittal had booked business-class tickets on Air India’s Delhi to Dubai flight for himself and his wife for a comfortable journey. However, when the couple boarded the flight, they were shocked to find that the footrest of one of the seats was broken. When Mittal raised the issue with the cabin crew, he claimed that the “commercial officer was completely rude and tried to offload them”. Mittal shared his experience on X, and described Air India’s business class as the “most pathetic” he had ever encountered.

“Me and my wife boarded AI 917 Delhi to Dubai this morning at 9:30 am, firstly it is the most pathetic business class ever, old, broken, and dilapidated. At the time of booking a new plane with a cabin was shown. The footrest of 2A is broken. On the complaint, the commercial officer was completely rude and tried to offload us. The flight is already more than one hour late,” wrote Mittal while sharing a picture and a few videos on X.

Here’s how other X users reacted to this post:

“I got lied to and feel badly cheated by Air India, too. I flew recently on business class from Delhi to Seoul, and before boarding, I was told my biz seat was broken, so instead promised an upgrade voucher plus a 75% refund as no other biz seat was vacant. But they refused to give me that voucher,” posted an individual.

Another added, “I faced the same situation while travelling back from Pune. Seat belt had turned dark black from grey. Passengers were hesitant to even touch it. Though they served complimentary meals and everyone got honki dori [all right]. But I urge Air India to please look into this.”

“Instead of Air India business (A320) class take Indigo XL seat & better legroom. Also, you don’t get an entertainment system in Air India business class,” expressed a third.

A fourth wrote, “If this can happen to a VIP, what can you expect from a common man? The deficiency in facilities can be understood but staff being rude is unpardonable.”
