A passenger on Indian carrier IndiGo Airlines has been detained for slapping a pilot after a plane was delayed due to bad weather, Indian media reported.
The incident took place on Jan 14 at Indira Gandhi International Airport in New Delhi, according to the Hindustan Times.
The plane, slated to fly from Delhi to Goa, faced a 13-hour delay as dense fog and cold enveloped large swathes of the northern part of India.
Over 100 flights were delayed in Delhi on Jan 14, but intermittent flight operations had resumed on Jan 15 morning.
A video posted by Instagram user @EvgeniaBelskaia on Jan 14 shows a pilot making an announcement when a passenger in a yellow hoodie storms towards him.
The passenger aggressively swings his arm and slaps the pilot, sending him hurtling backwards.
Two stewardesses rush to stop the passenger from attacking the pilot further, with one heard saying: “Sir, you cannot do this!” Posted By Ghost
