“There are discipline we have to follow when there is any occurrence involving a reserve of a aircraft, a passengers and a crew. We usually followed procedures.
“We couldn’t let a passengers know about a specific threat, We usually announced that for confidence reasons we were ludicrous a quarrel to Ahmedabad.”
