On a March 26 IndiGo flight from Guwahati to Delhi, an unruly, drunk passenger vomited on the aisle and defecated around the toilet, prompting the cabin crew to clean up his mess.
Advocate Bhaskar Dev Konwar, who was also on the flight, posted a photo of cabin crew member Shweta cleaning up the aisle, complimenting her on how she handled the situation.
“Indigo 6E 762: Guwahati to Delhi. Intoxicated passenger vomited on the aisle and defecated all around the toilet. Leading lady Shewta cleaned up all the mess and all the girls managed the situation exceptionally well. Salute girl power,” Konwar wrote with the picture on Facebook.
The picture shows a crew member wearing gloves and a mask and armed with cleaning spray and tissue papers cleaning up the vomited-upon spot.
He also elaborated in a different comment that it was not all the crew did and “out of respect” he didn’t share the photos.
“I was really feeling bad. Three girls were from Ne, one from Ghy, one from Bijoynagar and one from Kohima. They were virtually crawling on the aisle to clean it up and out of respect I didn’t click those moments,” he wrote.
The story quickly went viral with many users commenting and lambasting the passenger while praising the crew member.
“Hope the passenger has been put on no fly list. Abominable,” one user wrote.
“Very disgusting on the part of the passenger. Airport authority should take this seriously!” another wrote.
One user suggested that a test be developed to detect inebriated passengers. “Considering the mess they’ve made recently, there should be breathalyser tests for flight passengers,” the user wrote.
