P.V.Sindhu,Olympic silver medalist had a bad experience with Indigo Airlines while travelling from Hyderabad to Mumbai. She alleged that the ground staff behaved very rudely and when an air hostess intervened, the staff behaved badly with her as well.
The Airlines on the other hand issued a response backing its employee and said that he was just doing his duty. They said that Sindhu was carrying an overweight baggage that was not fitting into the overhead bin,hence she was informed that it would be moved to cargo hold of the aircraft. Sindhu on the other hand said that the ground staff objected to her carrying her kit- bag which contained her racquets and which she normally carried as hand baggage. She also said that if the Airlines had such rude staff,it would only spoil their reputation
