Four major Indian airlines have suspended stand-up comedian Kunal Kamra from flying on their airlines in view of the incident onboard IndiGo flight where the comedian accosted TV journalist Arnab Goswami and also made a video of it. 

SpiceJet and GoAir on Wednesday announced on Twitter that they were suspending Kamra from flying with the airline until further notice.

The development comes after Indigo and Air India suspended Kamra citing "unacceptable conduct" in view of the incident onboard an IndiGo flight where the comedian accosted journalist Arnab Goswami and also made a video of it.

After Tuesday's incident, IndiGo was the first airline to suspend Kamra from flying on its airline for six months. The airline stated that Kamra's conduct onboard was "unacceptable behaviour".

"In view of the incident onboard IndiGo, Air India wishes to inform that conduct of person concerned is unacceptable. With a view to discourage such behavior onboard flts, Kunal Kamra is suspended from flying on any Air India flt until further notice," Air India stated.

Kamra and Goswami were travelling in an IndiGo flight 6E 5317 from Mumbai to Lucknow on Tuesday when the incident happened. In the video posted by Kamra on his Twitter handle, Goswami, who can be seen glued to his laptop, did not respond to the former's heckling. 

"In light of the recent incident on board 6E 5317 from Mumbai to Lucknow, we wish to inform that we are suspending Mr Kunal Kamra from flying with IndiGo for a period of six months, as his conduct onboard was unacceptable behaviour," IndiGo said in a statement.

The airline has advised passengers to refrain from indulging in "personal slander" whilst onboard, as this can potentially compromise the safety of fellow passengers.
