After all sorts of unruly passenger behavior at the airline, a woman has come forward to share the ordeal she faced on an Emirates flight after a male co-passenger sex-tagged her for refusing to give up his aisle seat She paid for the discriminatory remarks.
On Twitter, a woman named Upasana Sharma shared her unpleasant experience on an Emirates flight. A man kept urging her to switch to a middle seat even though she had paid for the aisle seat. Ms Sharma, an assistant at a consulting firm, shared her ordeal in a series of tweets.
Ms Sharma recalled, “A man offered me a middle seat even though I had booked and paid for an aisle seat. When I declined, he said: ‘aap ladies ho, aap andar baith jao’. Translated into Because you are a woman, you can sit in it. Seeing that I continued to refuse, he said: “I’m drunk, so don’t blame me if you sit in the middle seat. “
In another tweet, she added, “While the crew didn’t understand everyone around me told them what he was talking about. The @emirates crew first tried to tell me to keep sitting there when I yelled no When they asked me to go up to the guy who said “don’t hold me accountable for my actions once I’m drunk”. On the @emirates side they told me they had filed a report and would be in touch , but I never heard from them. I also told them I wanted to file a formal report and was told they would be in touch.”
She added that she was given another seat but was still offered a drink for the co-passenger who was entitled to it.

On Jan. 9, Ms. Sharma shared that the airline had yet to get in touch with her, although she had lodged a report. She wrote, “Given some attention due to this post: Just wanted to highlight that @emirates STILL has not contacted me yet. I am flying Emirates again this week and I am very anxious and scared.”
Meanwhile, Shankar Mishra, who urinated on an elderly woman on an Air India flight, was denied bail by a Delhi court. Last year, Mishra urinated on a 70-year-old woman on a flight from New York to Delhi. He was arrested from Bengaluru last week, six weeks after his egregious behaviour.
Air India has been heavily criticized for not acting quickly.
