Air Vistara bans ‘comedian’ Kunal Kamra from flying till April 27 over his heckling incident aboard Indigo flight

In January this year, Kamra had shared a video on Twitter where he was heckling Republic TV chief Arnab Goswami. Following his unruly behaviour, Indigo, Air India, SpiceJet and GoAir had suspended him from flying with them for up to six months.

Air Vistara has now banned propagandist masquerading as comedian, Kunal Kamra, from flying till April 27 over the heckling incident aboard Indigo flight in January this year.

The decision was taken after conclusion of Indigo Airline’s internal committee investigation. Earlier this month, Indigo reduced his suspension from 6 months to 3 months.

In January this year, Kamra had shared a video on Twitter where he was heckling Republic TV chief Arnab Goswami. Following his unruly behaviour, Indigo, Air India, SpiceJet and GoAir had suspended him from flying with them for up to six months.

Earlier this year, Kamra had shared a video on social media boasting how he heckled Goswami on a flight. In the above video, one can see Kamra being annoyingly deranged while heckling to Arnab who continues to ignore him. The video was shot and uploaded by Kamra, perhaps to win accolades from his buddies who equally hate Goswami. He also kept saying how he was heckling Goswami ‘for Rohith’, the University of Hyderabad student who committed suicide in January 2016.

In September 2017, the government of India through Ministry of Civil Aviation unveiled rules to tackle on-board disruptive and unruly behaviour by passengers which could put them on No Fly List. As per the rule, if the pilot-in-command of the said Indigo flight files a complaint, he could fall under level 1 of unruly behaviour which could bar him for 3 months.

Fly-ban coupled with coronavirus-related lockdown, Kamra might want to read Rohith Vemula’s suicide note which he insisted Goswami read so he knows what he is ‘fighting’ for.
