Like it or not, DGCA is right in suspending Jet Airways crew after Sonu Nigam's mid-air 'concert'

In a somewhat similar sense, it is best to not copy international practices mid-air and take a rather conservative approach to safety by eschewing mid-air singing or dancing in the Indian airspace. #Jet Airways #Aviation #ConnectTheDots #SpiceJet #DGCA #Sonu Nigam #Safety violations
