[dropcap]P[/dropcap]assengers travelling from Dubai to Lucknow by Air India Express flight on Saturday were in for a shock when a male passenger stripped mid-air and started walking down the aisle nude.
The Aircraft crew swung into action and wrapped him in a blanket, sources in the airline told ANI.
Two crew members held him and kept him seated during the rest of the journey, they said. The provocation for such an act by the passenger was not clear.

“As per the direction of the Captain of the flight, the passenger was handed over to Airlines Security at Lucknow Airport where investigation is underway,” Air India Express spokesman told ANI.
The same flight later departed from Lucknow to Dubai at 1405 hrs on Saturday.
