The Indian aviation industry is in hot waters in recent times due to various reasons. After several episodes, notably of a passenger urinating on elderly woman and a flight taking off leaving back 50 passengers, another incident of mismanagement has come to fore. Now, the SpiceJet is in the eye of storm.
