“Captain Rohit Mateti ko mera salaam (I hail Captain Rohit Mateti),” Kamra said on Twitter.

In a letter to the IndiGo management on Thursday, Mateti had said he was “disheartened” to learn that Kamra was banned from flying purely on the basis of social media posts and that though his behaviour was “unsavoury”, it was not qualifying of a level-1 unruly passenger”.
