A passenger and an Air India duty manager got in an altercation after she was denied boarding

New Delhi:  A woman passenger and an Air India duty manager slapped each other at the Indira Gandhi International Airport this morning after she was denied boarding for reporting late, police said.

"A lady passenger was told by a counter staff that she will not be able to check-in because she was late for the flight. This led to an argument and the staff directed her to the duty manager who was also a lady and there was an argument and an altercation," an Air India spokesperson said.

Sources in the airline said the passenger allegedly slapped the duty manager.

The duty manager also hit back, DCP, Airport, Sanjay Bhatia said.

"Arguments started between the passenger and Air India lady staff and the passenger slapped her. Lady staff in retaliation also slapped her," Mr Bhatia said.
