Soon after the picture was posted by Indigo, Twitter had its share of laugh. Some even trolled Indigo and reminded them of the cases where the airlines have allegedly misbehaved with the passengers.
I hope @IndiGo6E crew maintains calm at least this time.

Rahul: be careful, don't argue with indigo staff else SPG may also not work against indigo staff, BTW would be great if this become the way of life and not just a photo-op, Indigo: Pl don't treat him the way you do rest of us.. shabbily
