Kapoor said that their crew is human too. “We do not condone such photos being taken of our crew or customers without their permission, nor do we think it is correct to post such photos on social media. Our crew is the finest in the industry, and are human too. We suggest you do the right thing and take the photo down.”

Kapoor’s response went viral. This led to the passenger deleting his original tweet.
