In a bizarre case of confusion, Air India cancelled the flight of a man named Kunal Kamra living in Boston.
The comedian's namesake, who was travelling to meet his family in India, was disallowed entry after the default system cancelled his ticket due to his name.
Even Kunal (the comedian) tweeted about the incident.
Another person named Kunal Kamra’s ticket got cancelled by Air-India & he hade difficulty in flying...— Kunal Kamra (@kunalkamra88) February 5, 2020
Just to balance it out Air-India now must upgrade another person called Arnab Goswami to business class...
And there has been no stopping since then.

If NPR happens I am sure all @kunalkamra88 s will be out of the list.— immortalconscience (@immortalconsci1) February 5, 2020
Though the confusion was resolved and the man was allowed to board his flight, errors like these dent the country's reputation.
