“Everyone deserves to be treated with respect, irrespective of where they come from or who they are. There’s a way to talk. You cannot claim that a purse counts as hand luggage and not allow an actual carry-on bag. More so, for no valid reason, you cannot threaten to deplane someone to show power.” wrote Pooja Hegde in her reply tweet. The airline is yet to react to this tweet.
