DEALING WITH UNRULY PASSENGERS
The Ministry of Civil Aviation has recommended action at three levels of unruly behaviour by passengers, each with a different duration of ban on flying. As per a statement put forth by the government, unruly air passengers will be banned from flying for a period ranging from three months to lifetime. The first level of misdemeanour is verbal harassment and will invite a flying ban of three months. The second level comprises physically abusive behaviour which will carry a ban of six months. The third category consists of life threatening behaviour and will carry a flying ban of two years or more without limit.
