Over the weekend, Vistara Airlines landed in trouble when they posted a picture with General G.D Bakshi on Twitter. For the unaware, here's a bit of context that can help you jog your memories.

The tweet consisted of a picture of two airline cabin crew posing with General Bakshi and described him as a celebrated Kargil war hero. The tweet also read, “Thank you Sir, for your service to the nation.”

He wrote, "It was very nice of Vistara airlines to send two senior Officials to my house to tender an apology over the Tweeting incident.
