People on Jet Airways 9W 2552 flight on September 19 will never forget their journey as Asaram Bapu and his devotees made sure that almost every flight safety measure that airlines take were broken by them.
“Seat belt ki kya zaroorat jab swayam bhagwaan hamare saath hain? (What is the need of a seat belt when God Himself is travelling with us?).”
According to reports, the commotion had started even before Asaram had boarded the flight as was delayed by over two hours with no announcement being made with regards to reason.
To add to their misery, the air conditioner on the flight wasn’t working, making it hot and stuffy. Further when they were questioned about the same they were told, that “the cooling wouldn’t start until all passengers were seated.”
