In one of the ads, Air India promised "Unbeatable Service" with the letters 'beat' highlighted in blue - the theme colour of IndiGo, reported news agency PTI. The second ad depicts Air India's mascot 'Maharaja' in his trademark style with a tag line - "We raise our hands only to say Namaste." Although deleted, the airline hasn't distanced itself from the two ads.
Also seen on Twitter was a parody ad for Jet Airways that said - "we beat our competition, not you". The private airline on Wednesday clarified that they had nothing to do with the ad and it wasn't created by them. Yet, it continued to be shared on Twitter.
Meanwhile, on Twitter many called for a boycott of IndiGo for the assault video.

Civil Aviation Minister Ashok Gajapathi Raju has sought an independent inquiry into the incident from the Directorate General of Civil Aviation.
