Ace Indian shuttler and world number two, PV Sindhu, has slammed Indigo airlines after undergoing an unsatisfactory experience during her flight to Mumbai on Saturday. Sindhu, who was travelling from Hyderabad, took to Twitter where she recalled her ordeal and went on to accuse an airline ground staff of behaving rudely with her. Naming the member of ground operations, Mr Ajeetesh, Sindhu stated that not only did he behave badly with her but also spoke rudely to an air hostess who had tried to intervene.

“Sorry to say ..i had a very bad experience😤when i was flying by 6E 608 flight to bombay on 4th nov the ground staff by name Mr ajeetesh(1/3)”. she wrote and added, “Ground staff (skipper) Mr Ajeetesh behaved very badly and rudely with me. When the air hostess Ms Ashima tried to advise him to behave properly with the passenger (me) but to my surprise he behaved rudely with her.”

“If this type of people work for a reputed airline like Indigo they will spoil their reputation,” she further added.

However, Indigo has refuted Sindhu’s claims and stated that she had boarded the flight carrying an oversized luggage which was not fitting into the overhead bin. Accordingly, she was informed that it would be moved to the cargo hold of the aircraft (as per policy followed for all customers). Indigo also rejected claims of misbehaviour by the member of ground operations and went on to say that he remained calm and after several requests finally consented to remove the bag.

This not the first time that a sportstar has been miffed with an airline company. Earlier, legendary batsman, Sachin Tendulkar had expressed anger after British Airways did not confirm a waitlisted ticket of Tendulkar’s family member despite seats being available.
