This may be what happens when the IT department are frustrated, or bored... A passenger on an Air India flight was shocked after being called an "idiot" by the in-flight entertainment unit.
The woman said she tried to watch a movie but the entertainment unit wouldn't work properly. While adjusting the switches and buttons, a rather rude message popped up on the screen.
It read: "The selection is not currently available. Please try again." The message continued toward the bottoms of the screen: "Lie low... Sit down you idiot!".
The airline has commented that it may have been a glitch in the system, with the subtitles of the movie the woman had been watching coming up on the screen.
A rather unfortunate matter of timing. Perhaps.
