A flight attendant put a rude passenger on blast as she told him she wasn't his servant during a heated argument mid-flight.
The argument was captured by another passenger who was able to pick out the moment the flight attendant declared she was not the man's servant.
It turns out the argument had all started because the man had expected to be given a sandwich, something not guaranteed on the flight, and cabin crew had told him they'd check to see if one became available.
The flight attendant had tried to tell him they can only serve what his boarding pass says, but he continued to be rude and disruptive.
She said: "My crew is crying because of you.
"I am so sorry sir but you cannot talk to the crew like that, I am peacefully listening to you with all due respect but you have to respect the crew as well."
The passenger asked what he'd done that was disrespectful, only to be told his yelling and pointing at the crew was a problem.
He responded that he was only shouting because the flight attendant was 'yelling me on' and shouted at her to 'shut up' when she tried to explain the situation further.
The passenger then called her a 'servant', which prompted the flight attendant to say: "I am an employee, I am not your servant."
In the end the passenger resorted to yelling 'don't yell' at her after she told him he couldn't treat the cabin crew like servants.
IndiGo has released a statement about the argument and have said it will look further into what happened.
It said: "We are aware of the incident that took place on flight 6E 12 from Istanbul to Delhi on December 16, 2022.
"The issue was related to meals chosen by certain passengers travelling via a codeshare connection."
Tejasvi Chandela, another passenger on the flight, took to Instagram to further explain what had happened in more detail, explaining that a number of the passengers on the plane were 'very rude to the crew'.
Chandela explained that some of the passengers referred to the crew as 'servants' and had caused another flight attendant to cry before the argument which had been captured on camera.
She then offered to be a witness to any crew members who wanted to take the matter further in an investigation.
