In a bid to crackdown on unruly passengers, Air India has formulated new rules. The premiere airline has decided to take legal action and impose fines or charges on unruly passengers. The decision comes a month after an Air India crew member was assaulted by an unruly passenger happened to be an MP of the Shiva Sena.
The new rules that Air India has formulated, the airline hopes, deters passengers from misbehaving with the airline staff. Rules also include fine of Rs 5 lakh for a delay up to 1 hour, Rs 10 lakh for a delay between 1 and 2 hours and Rs 15 lakh to be imposed on passengers for delay of more than 2 hours.
While the proposal has been formulated, the same is yet to be acknowledged by the ministry of civil aviation.
