A rowdy American Airlines passenger urinated on another passenger aboard a flight from New York to Delhi over the weekend.
The man, who was reportedly drunk and “unruly,” was arrested after Flight 292 from JFK airport landed at Delhi airport around 9pm on Sunday, New Delhi Television reported.
American Airlines confirmed in a statement there had been a disruption on the flight but spared the stomach-churning details.
“American Airlines Flight 292, connecting John F. Kennedy International Airport (JFK) to Indira Gandhi International Airport (DEL), was intercepted by local law enforcement on arrival at DEL due to an onboard malfunction,” the company told local outlets .
“We are grateful to our crew members who have consistently demonstrated their commitment to the safety and care of our customers and have managed the circumstances with the utmost professionalism.”
The incident marks at least the third time a passenger relieved himself on another person on flights between New York and Delhi since late last year.
Last month, a 21-year-old college student pissed on a business-class passenger on the same 15-hour flight, American Airlines Flight 292, while intoxicated. The Indian, who had studied in the US, was arrested as he got off the plane in Delhi.
The pilot and crew said the student, Aryan Vohra, was “heavily intoxicated” and “repeatedly argued with the operating crew, was unwilling to be seated and constantly threatened the safety of the crew and aircraft.”
“After disrupting the safety of other passengers, [he] ended up urinating on a passenger,” American Airlines said.
In a similar incident in November, a traveler urinated on a 70-year-old woman who was sitting in business class on an Air India flight from Delhi to New York. According to local media, the man has been banned from traveling on Air India for 30 days.
