Mumbai, Feb 15: After a dispute between Bollywood actress Ayesha Takia and Kingfisher heir Siddharth Mallya over a misbehaviour issue, Abhishek Bacchhan on Tuesday almost faced the same issue with Jet Airways' crew members as he was not allowed to board the flight.

Meanwhile, disgruntled Abhishek preferred another flight to reach Jaipur for his movie shoot. The actor sounded upset with the experience as he tweeted: "Jet Airways, you just lost one of your most loyal customers."

According to sources, the actor reached the airport on time, but when he went to board the flight, Jet Airways crew members stopped him for coming late.

"In fact, Abhishek had even been given the boarding pass at the check-in counter. And strangely his luggage wasn't loaded either even though he had asked for it to be checked in," sources claimed blaming Jet Airways representative at the check-in counter responsible for the incident.

"It seems that she didn't inform her colleagues at the last counter before boarding the flight. Even after Abhishek wasn't allowed to get onto the aircraft, she could have intervened because she had issued the boarding pass.

"But it looks like she didn't care much and didn't take the initiative of attending to a passenger despite no fault of his," it added.

However, spokesperson for Jet Airways was quoted as saying, "We were awaiting the guest's arrival for the early morning Jaipur flight. However, due to boarding gate closure procedures for all airlines to depart on time, the guest could not be accommodated on this flight.

"The guest was looked after at the lounge and an alternate flight was offered. Inconvenience caused to the guest is regretted," he added.
