I will speak out against the delay passengers face in getting checked in baggage, the issue of baggage theft, cleanliness, timing delays. the airline forcing people to travel economy inspite of having business class tickets and the quality of food.

On Monday, Jayant Sinha, Minister of State for Civil Aviation, said Gaikwad can't be treated specially and the ban was put in place for passenger safety.


The assault on Air India duty officer R Sukumar on Thursday resonated in the Lok Sabha with Shiv Sena MPs demanding revocation of the ban.

After Air India put him on the no-fly list, the Federation of Indian Airlines, which has Jet Airways, SpiceJet, IndiGo and GoAir as its members, also imposed a ban on Gaikwad from flying their aircraft.

"We have good safety regulations but never in my dreams expected a Parliament member to be involved in such an incident", he said, and added that violence of any kind can be a disaster for airlines.

In Omerga towns in Osmanabad, the party called for complete shutdown and also held motorcycle rallies in support of its leader. After every airline refused to book him a seat, the politician was forced to take a train.

The Shiv Sena used the comedian as an example to defend the alleged assault on an Air India official by Gaikwad, with shoes.

"I told him that I have given my complaint to the air-hostess and you refer to him".

Refusing to apologise for the incident, the MP had, in fact, asked the Air India employee to apologise: "Why should I be sorry? Let the airline stop me from boarding its flight to Maharashtra's Pune city", he told the media.
