An Air India flight from Milan to New Delhi went back to the airport in Italy within 30 minutes of liftoff, after a traveler attempted to get in the cockpit. The occurrence happened on August 2, when the traveler from seat 32 C attempted to get in the cockpit, breaching air travel guidelines, an unknown Air India representative stated on Saturday.
The airplane, with over 250 travelers on board, was reclaimed to Milan airport, where the regional authorities instantly detained the implicated, PTI reported.
“[The] Air India 138 Milan-Delhi flight [was] postponed by 2.37 hours as one rowdy traveler Gurpreet Singh attempted to get in the cockpit after liftoff from Milan on schedule,” an airline company declaration checked out. The airline company stated the pilot chose to dispose fuel while en route back to Milan, to decrease the weight of the airplane while landing, NDTV reported.
It is unknowned if Air India will submit a protest versus Singh, and put him on the no-fly list pending questions. If placed on the list, a traveler deals with a two-year flying restriction.
