Air India rap: Airline slaps pilot with gag order

The Air India pilot, who managed to raise the hackles of the airline management with his expletive filled rap video, was reportedly warned that he would be taken off flying duties completely for his indiscipline and was also served with a gag order.

Captain Anjum Chabra, a first officer with the airline, had recently put up a expletive-filled rap song video on YouTube about the situation within national carrier Air India.

A Mumbai Mirror report quoted an Air India official as saying, “We asked him if he wanted to quit, but he had no answer.”

The video invited criticism from his employers, and was also been termed sexist because of what it says about the female cabin crew members. And this despite a disclaimer asking people ‘to just enjoy the music’.

“I made it as a hobby. I didn’t mean to offend anyone,” Chabra told Mumbai Mirror.

The rap song blamed the 'big bosses' in the organisation for the mess that the airline has landed into.

Times of India reported that the pilot on Tuesday gave a written apology to the management over the allegedly 'sexist' lyrics.
