Following their 'steamy make-out' session during the flight, the fellow passengers including Alvi then approached the air hostess to make them stop. The flight attendant then warned the couple who continued smooching on which the crew then provided them a blanket later to keep continue the act underneath.
Alvi also added that upon confrontation, the wild couple responded that ‘You don’t have any right to interfere in someone’s privacy’.
Meanwhile, the advocate lodged an official complaint with the Civil Aviation Authority (CAA) against the airline staff for not stopping the couple from public indecency and facilitating them with a blanket to continue the ‘love-filled moments’.
As for now, the aviation authority hasn’t responded to the matter and ‘investigations are underway’.
