As per norms, any allegation of misbehaviour mid-air by passengers has to be investigated by an internal committee set up by the carrier concerned.

Soon after IndiGo's ban, others carriers such Air India, GoAir and SpiceJet had also announced travel restrictions on Kamra. At that time, Vistara had not banned him from travelling on its flights.
