Pune: According to the information given by the authorities, more than two weeks after Shiv Sena MP Ravindra Gaikwad was blacklisted by all airlines, he today again travelled on a Pune-New Delhi flight.

Following to the road and train routes he took recently due to ban, the Osmanabad MP took the Pune-New Delhi AI-852, which has now made a provision for business class travel on this particular service. Incidentally, on March 23 it was the same flight AI-852 which did not offer business class that day leading to a serious verbal and physical altercation with the airline staffers.

It concluded in the assault of a senior official, two police complaints lodged against him, blacklisting him, slapping a complete flying ban besides ruckus by Shiv Sena in the Parliament and a face-off between the two ruling BJP-led NDA constituents.
