On January 4th, 2016, on a Jet Airways chartered flight from Jodhpur to Mumbai, singer Sonu Nigam, on popular demand from the passengers, gave a brief performance. At the onset, it seems a harmless act, but, the DGCA & Jet Airways don’t believe so. Terming the mid-air song performance a safety hazard, Jet Airways has suspended all 5 cabin crew members for allowing Sonu to compromise safety mid-air.
But the singer has come out & slammed the action taken by the airline saying that he was only trying to spread happiness & the suspension is an example of real intolerance in the country. So, the question is…is the airline overreacting?
