She also posted on her FB wall when she was still at Heathrow Airport. Then she also posted her video on FB from a Heathrow terminal detailing the incident on Thursday night.
"When water was served just after the flight started I was left out and I thought that the airhostess would have missed me just by chance. I was very thirsty. Then I specially asked for water and Air Hostess- named Monica - a black woman - said she would just serve. She was serving our line. Then a male host served water to me. Then in the night they served dinner and except me food was served to all. I was not asked if I required vegetarian or non-veg food. Even as I had food with me which I had brought with me but they had nothing to do with it and did not even ask me for once. I was wondering that how they could forget for the second time. Then I again asked Monica who was at food counter and asked why I was being ignored as I was not served food or even asked for choice of food and I told her that I was feeling discriminated. She said don't take personal, sometimes we forget. But I pointed out that only I was forgotten. I pointed out that entire flight was served and only I was left out," she said.
