A passenger was kicked off an IndiGo flight from Mumbai to Kolkata flight for trying to enter the cockpit to charge his phone.
An airport official told the Press Trust of India news agency that the man, said to be in his mid-thirties, was drunk.
Police questioned and then released him without charge, the official added.
This is the second bizarre incident this week after a passenger tried to open an emergency exit, mistaking it for a toilet.
This is taking stupidity 190 levels higher (190 is the maximum number of seats on an Airbus A320). Why would someone think the cockpit has a power socket (never mind, I should have asked why someone would think they can barge in to charge their phone)? And aren’t emergency exits clearly labelled in both English and Hindi in India? Anyways, this shows how much education and common sense many Indians would need.
(Sort of off-topic but this also shows how dumb people can be) A few months back I saw a video of a kid being forced to push down the pebbles he kept on a train track somewhere in rural India. He kept them there so the train would crush them!
