Air India's 6 seat reservation for women step earn mixed reviews; What do you think?
Los Angeles : Air India’s Maharaja has finally offered to bow to women with the news that they will start reserving seats for females on all domestic flights.
According to ANI report, Six seats on every domestic flight will be reserved for women from January 18.
This seems to be the first time that seats will be reserved for women passengers on planes.
In India, other transport services including local and long-distance trains, metros and buses have reserved berths, seats or coaches for women.
The step comes in wake of a recent incident on-board when a female flyer was reportedly groped by a co-passenger on Air India's Mumbai-Newark flight.
The incident took place when a business class passenger changed his seat to sit next to a female passenger in the economy class and allegedly groped her when she fell asleep.
On social media, the reservation news invoked some positive and negative remarks. Let us take a look at them.
