After Shiv Sena MP Ravindra Gaikwad beaten Air India staff 25 times with his sandals and tried to throw him out of the aircraft, all private airlines and Air India barred the MP from flying with them. Air India has cancelled Gaikwad's return ticket from Delhi to Pune.

Ujjwal Dey of FIA said, Air India and Federation of Indian Airlines (FIA, which comprises IndiGo, Jet, SpiceJet and GoAir) member airlines have decided to ban this MP from flying on all our flights with immediate effect. We believe that exemplary action should be taken in such incidents to protect employee morale and public safety. AI and the member airlines of the FIA condemn the assault on an AI staff member by a passenger who happens to be an MP+ on March 23, 2017. The airlines demand that strict action be taken against the MP by law enforcement agencies. We believe that an assault on any one of our employees is an assault on all of us and on ordinary law abiding citizens of our country who work hard to earn a living.

He said, in the interest of the safety and security of our colleagues and other customers, we also propose the promulgation of a 'no fly' list which shall include the names of all unruly passengers. Such customers are not welcome on our carriers and we seek the support of the government and security agencies to enforce such a 'no-fly' list.

Vistara and AirAsia India who are not a member of FIA also bar the MP from their flights.
