However, even with the evidence he had, there was reportedly initially no action taken against the couple.

The passenger explained that he followed up by sending an email.

“I’m horrified how such an event could have little effect on the involved passengers. Surely, there are consequences for the actions of people in South Africa’s skies?”

The passenger said he expected harsh consequences for the couple because public indecency is unlawful.

The man added that there was a large contingent of school children on the plane and he was mostly concerned of the consequences if a child had been in his seat.

FlySafair spokesperson Kirby Gordon reportedly spoke to News24 and then called the passenger who had lodged the complaint and then provided a follow-up response to the reporter.

He confirmed that the couple have been banned from their airline.

Gordon added that sexual activity on flights was unusual and “passengers are generally very decent on flights”.
