Turbulence has nothing to do with pilot or plane quality. Morons who don''t wear seat belts when the sign is on are not just a danger to themselves but also to others over whom they will fall when thrown into the air.

Air turbulence is one such thing where even the world''s best airlines are helpless.
The good part of the news is that all are safe and the flight landed safely. The man is still weak against God''s creation.

Rahul baby will try to blame Modi for this. He asks when Modi travels why no turbulence. Only when public travels there is turbulence.

Passengers should fasten seat belts at all times. It is foolhardy not to do so. But many passengers don''t care about such safety precautions.

I sympathize with passengers, but please Pidis, don''t start blaming Modi, BJP and Saffron color.
