Sonu Nigam, Jet Airways, Sonu Nigam sings on flight, Sonu Nigam sings in flight, Sonu Nigam video, Sonu Nigam flight video, Jet Airways flight, India news Sonu Nigam was on a flight from Jodhpur to Mumbai when fellow passengers asked him to perform.

Sonu Nigam’s impromptu in-flight performance on a Jet Airways flight may have made a lot of people happy, but the authorities reportedly weren’t amused.

Jet Airways issued a statement on Twitter saying it suspended all cabin crew of a flight and is enforcing corrective measures and disciplinary actions. Though the tweet doesn’t state what incident spurred this, reports allege that the misuse of the in-flight announcement system by the playback singer is responsible for this.

The singer was on a flight from Jodhpur to Mumbai when fellow passengers asked him to perform. The artist obliged and soon videos of Nigam singing ‘Do pal ka khwabon ka karvaan” from Veer Zaara and “Panchhi nadiya” from Refugee over the flight’s intercom for his fellow passengers went viral on social media.

    I think people have a thought that the aircraft itself may start dancing when Sonu is singing... Nonsense decision. They will wait for hours for so called VIPs and VVIPs!!!! No issues in that.

        Wrong decision from jetairways. Pengers told sonu to sing a song. Even if he sang what could possibly go wrong in that 2 to 3 mins time. Suspension for such a cause is too harsh to the cabin crew members.

                I do not understand how Safety has been comprised? Is this about Sonu being close to the pit or is it about Sonu not wearing seat belt! Why around with the poor cabin crew? Did any penger object to it and it was not heard? jet Airways and Civil Aviation, you have bigger problems to solve in life... ensure that people are not sucked into engines and there is no corruption. Rest the people and Cabin Crew will take care.... don't interfere.

                  Flight t is not a stage to perform. Some may like singing. Some may hate any disturbance while in flight. Rules are rules. No body is so great to break rules in public. Good decision.
