American Airlines passenger arrested amid accusations of urinating on fellow flyer

Miami, USA - July 30, 2014: The new and the old visual design of American Airlines together at Miami International Airport, Miami, Florida.

A pissy American Airlines passenger took his high flying beef to another (quite strange) level when he urinated on his fellow passenger mid argument.

This yellow act kicked off this week on board American Airlines Flight 292 heading from John F Kennedy International Airport (JFK) to Delhi’s Indira Gandhi International Airport (DEL) on Monday, 24th April.

At one point on this 15-hour flight, the two passengers got into a heated discussion which climaxed in one of the hostile flyers pissing on his foe to prove his point and win the fight.

Upon arriving at DEL, airport police awaited the messy passenger and escorted the peeing pariah off the plane (pardon the alliteration). Once removed from the aircraft, the man, who was reportedly intoxicated during the argument, was arrested.

But, as to whether this man urinated on the other is still up in the air as the deputy commissioner of airport police at DEL, Devesh Kumar Mahla, said that the arrest was based off accusations from passengers and cabin crew, but law enforcement were yet to see solid (or liquid) evidence of the urinating.

“There was no corroborative evidence or complaint given by co-passengers regarding someone peeing on them,” Mahla said.

The passenger who claimed to be the victim of the attack has filed a formal complaint with the airline, Simple Flying reported.

Regarding the incident American Airlines distributed the following statement.

“American Airlines flight 292 with service from John F. Kennedy International Airport (JFK) to Indira Gandhi International Airport (DEL) was met by local law enforcement upon arrival in DEL due to a disruption on board.

“We’re grateful to our crew members who are consistently dedicated to the safety and care of our customers and handled the circumstances with the utmost professionalism.”

Sounds like a far too eventive flight for anyone’s liking.
