British passengers stage protest against Air India

Four British citizens staged a protest in front of the Air India office at Unity Building on Friday night against the airline's move of “transferring” the reserved seats to other passengers.

The Britons - Nayeema, Manza, Ivan and Diya - said that they had come to the city on August 7. “We had paid Rs 2.5 lakh and reserved the onward journey to England on August 26. We went to the KIA at 5 am as the flight was to leave at 6.10 am. The Air India staff did not issue us boarding passes and sent us away,” alleged Nayeema.

All the four claimed that the Air India staff did not behave properly. “We learnt later in the evening that the Air India had allotted the seats to other passengers. Hence, we staged a protest," Nayeema added. The Halasuru Gate police rushed to the spot, but the Air India staff had left for the day. The police are trying to contact senior officers of the Air India, said the police.
