For those planning a journey from the United States to India, it might be a good idea to bring a carry-on umbrella and a spare set of clothes in case of an emergency. This is following an incident on Sunday involving two passengers on an American Airlines flight 292 from New York City to Delhi, India.
Reportedly, one of the passengers had become intoxicated and caused a commotion, eventually leading to the individual urinating on his fellow traveler.
The relevant authorities in India were on hand to apprehend the suspect, who is believed to be an Indian national, when the plane arrived at Indira Gandhi International Airport around 9 pm. The identities of the suspect and the victim have yet to be released. The victim has lodged a formal complaint with the airline, however, American Airlines has not confirmed the incident.
This is not the first case of mid-flight urination from a flight from the U.S. to India in the last five months. In November, a business executive from Wells Fargo in Mumbai, who was found to be under the influence of alcohol, urinated on an elderly woman in the business class section of an Air India plane. In February, a 21-year-old student, Aryan Vohra, who was also on board American Airlines flight 292, was found to have urinated on a fellow passenger while in an intoxicated state.
The Indian Directorate General of Civil Aviation is currently investigating this latest incident.
