An Indian traveller was banned from flying on American Airlines after he peed on a US co-passenger during a flight from New York to Delhi.

According to the complaint by American Airlines as seen by news agency ANI, they said, “We along with CISF officer (at Delhi’s IGI airport) removed passenger from aircraft who was still drunk. Based on this we would be cancelling his return and future travel on our flight.”

The passenger, Arya Vohra, 21, is a student at a US University. He was on flight AA292 when he urinated on a US citizen on March 4 while he was intoxicated. 

The student may have peed involuntarily while he was asleep due to the alcohol. 

The urine somehow landed on another passenger. A source told PTI that the male victim did not want to report the matter to the police after the student said sorry as it might ruin his career. 

However, the airline took it seriously and informed the Delhi Air Traffic Control (ATC) at the airport.

On the basis of an airline complaint, the Delhi Police has stated that they are initiating the required legal measures. The airline has sent the Directorate General of Civil Aeronautics with a report about the event (DGCA). "The concerned Airline has sent a report to us. 

They appear to have handled the matter effectively and taken the necessary measures, according to a DGCA officer who spoke to ANI.

The American Airline statement earlier said, “Local law enforcement met American Airlines flight 292 with service from John F. Kennedy International Airport (JFK) to Indira Gandhi International Airport (DEL) upon arrival in DEL due to a disruptive customer. The flight landed safely at 9:50 pm.”

It also said, “Upon aircraft arrival, Purser informed that the passenger was very drunk, and was not following crew instructions on board. 

He was constantly arguing with the operating crew, was not ready to be seated and continuously risking the safety of crew and aircraft and after bothering safety of fellow passengers, finally peed on pax seated on 15G.”

The pilot had contacted Delhi ATC and informed about the passenger and asked for security. It was told to CISF to take necessary action.

There has been increase of peeing incidents on flight since last year. Last year, Shankar Mishra allegedly peed on the 70-year-old woman co-passenger in a drunk condition in business class of the Air India flight on 26 November 2022. 

Mishra was arrested from Bengaluru on January 6 and sent to judicial custody by a court in Delhi on 7 January, however, on 31 January he got bail.

He was denied boarding by Air India for four months due to the incident. In addition, the airline fired a pilot and four cabin service members for disregarding the woman's complaint.

In another incident, a different drunk man peed on the blanket of a female co-passenger. The man had given a written apology after which no penal action was taken against him.

During a Paris to Delhi Air-India flight on December 6, 2022, the incident took place.

During this time, the pilot of the aircraft reported the matter to the Air Traffic Control (ATC) at the Indira Gandhi International (IGI) Airport, after which they apprehended the male passenger.
