This person thinks Indian passengers are "f***ing rats" and an "untameable bunch". This person thinks Indian passengers are “f***ing rats” and an “untameable bunch”.

Hundreds of people faced near-death experience when an Emirates flight from Thiruvananthapuram had a hard landing at the Dubai airport and caught fire. Reportedly, all the passengers and crew were safely evacuated, though 13 of them suffered minor injuries. However, a firefighter lost his life while saving others.

A video of the crash emerged on the Web, which shows people panicking inside the plane picking up their bags as the crew member shouts “Jump! Jump! Jump! Leave your bags behind!”.

After watching this video, apparently, an ex-flight attendant decided to post a rant about how Indian passengers are “f***ing rats” and an “untameable bunch” who had no idea about the situation they were in. The person eventually deleted his post after UAE-based RJ and TV presenter Mohit Dantre took screenshots of the post and the comments on the post that were equally racist, and shared them on his Facebook page.
“I’m actually sitting here and I’ve nearly been sick! These f***ing rats have no idea the danger they’re in! Until you’ve done one of the these Indian sectors at stupid o’clock you’ll never know how they are! All the same QR-EK-EY! The crew must have been just as terrified!! The noise in this video is just chilling! So proud of my ex-colleagues! Faced with an untameable bunch!” the person wrote.

The comments that followed read, “Horrible ppl” and this was not the least of it.

Dantre, furious at the post, took to Facebook to share his anger in a long post. “I don’t think he realizes that a situation is called a panic situation because people panic! There is no set behavior pattern that is taught incase your plane explodes into a fireball, is it? And you know why? Because people don’t live to tell the tale! Could people have reacted better? I don’t know! Would people from another country react any different or better? I certainly don’t think so! How does one react to a situation where you see your life is about to end in the next few seconds. And got to love how he has colored his racist rant into a status update full of ‘shock,anger and fear’,” wrote Dantre.

He also says that it isn’t the first time he has heard such comments on Indians but he hopes that people and mostly the person’s bosses take note of this insensitive behaviour.

      Supreeth Shankarghal, who describes himself as a frequent flier and aviation enthusiast, lists some of the worst offenses Indians are known for: Being adamant about placing their overweight hand baggage in the overhead bin of only their preference. Stealing cutlery. Stealing headphones and blankets. Not switching off the phone during take-offs or landings despite warnings. Taking selfies and pictures inside the flight when asked not to do so. Not making way or getting up from the seat for fellow passengers. Reclining the seat even during take-offs and landings. Not speaking proper English. Ogling at air hostesses and other female passengers. Moving up and down the aircraft many times. Requesting for unnecessary seat changes. Getting up and going to the toilet when seatbelt sign is on. Removing seat-belts and getting up to remove overhead baggage when the aircraft is still taxiing. Over-abuse of free alcohol served on board. This is WHY - I say- let us help bring change to India!
