List is growing with the MP’s who are put in “NO FLY” list especially because of their rude behavior towards the Airline staff. After ShivSena MP, this time our very own MP from Ananthapur, JC Diwakar Reddy. TDP MP JC Diwakar Reddy on Thursday created a ruckus at the Vishakhapatnam Airport. JC Diwakar Reddy was denied boarding pass as he was late to the airport. It is being said that JC was late by 45 minutes before the flight to Hyderabad take-off. Indigo Airlines dined the boarding pass. This reportedly led JC to enter into argument with Indigo staff. Interestingly, the MP managed to board the flight but it was not clear who intervened to get him the boarding pass.
Closed-circuit television footage aired on television channels showed the TDP leader shouting at the airline staff as some security personnel tried to control him. He even pushed one of the Indigo staff and seen pushing printer down.
IndiGo placed a ban on flying Reddy on late Thursday evening, this was followed by four more airlines -- Air India, Jet Airways, SpiceJet and GoAir -- also barring him.
Earlier, Shiv Sena MP Ravindra Gaikwad was accused of assaulting an Air India staff, following which several airlines banned him from flying on their planes till he apologized.
