If you’ve been living under a rock and don’t know what happened miles above you on an IndiGo flight last week, here’s a recap: Kunal Kamra confronted Republic TV’s anchor Arnab Goswami on a flight and, as a result, was put on a no-fly list by IndiGo, Air India, Spice Jet and GoAir. Unfortunately, it seems like everyone else named ‘Kunal Kamra’ is banned from flying these carriers too.
Two days ago, Boston-based Kunal Kamra’s PNR was cancelled by Air India’s system because of the ban on the comedian. Eventually, he had to present two kinds of ID proof (of which his American ID finally worked) before he was allowed to board the flight from Jaipur to Mumbai.
His namesake called it “collateral damage”.
Multiple jokes and memes (and a vlog!) have been doing the rounds since the incident took place. But is there really too much work comics need to do when an airline fucks up and makes a bigger joke of the whole situation?
Kamras in the house, gimme a -aaany other first name!
