Jet Airways passenger jailed for life for hijack hoax

Wed Jun 12, 2019 9:56 am

A platinum member of Jet Airways's loyalty programme flying business class was jailed for life for a hijack hoax. Apparently, he did that to get the chance to woo a stewardess.

This is just as weird as the conspiracy theories in the "Jet Shutdown" thread, but unlike those, this appears to be real.

There have been a slew of hoaxes for reasons ranging for running late for a flight to "unfulfilled/one sided" love...it needs to be dealt with sternly, but jailing for life? Now that a step too far.

Jailed for life? Interesting approach to the concept of proportionality under the rule of law...

In this case, a smaller aircraft would have yielded a lighter sentence. Proportionality, and all that.

/for the humor-impaired, it’s a joke. Of sorts.

In his note, the man instructed the pilots to fly to Kashmir, and said that he would start killing if the landing gear deployed. I bet the next person will think twice before staging such a scene. Bravo Indian justice.

I guess that that is the Indian standard, which I respect. Still, I am speechless in front of so much stupidity from the passenger.

He is wealthy. I would bet this gets overturned eventually solely based on that.
