Das was waiting in the lounge of the airport for his flight. He missed it when boarding announcements were allegedly not made in the lounge, according to Buzzfeed India.

When the airline staff, instead of apologising to Das, allegedly misbehaved with him, Das posted about the entire incident on Twitter. He said he was pushed and yelled at for 15 minutes.

Das even took videos of the incident and posted them on Twitter.

On the other hand, Jet Airways posted a statement on Twitter, saying that announcements for his flight were made at the boarding gate and the lounge staff had also called out the flight to the guests in the lounge.

The entire row finally ended when Das posted a tweet saying that Jet Airways staff met him at the gate of the airport in Mumbai and apologised to him for their alleged mistake. Das said that he was taking down the videos put up because of the apology.
