The London-Mumbai Jet Airways flight 9W119 (January 1st) touched down safely in Mumbai Chatrapathi Shivaji International Airport. There were 324 passengers, 14 crew members in the flight. Everything seemed normal for those travelling in the aircraft.
But shockingly, the pilot got suspended after an incident has been reported to the Aviation regulator DGCA. The woman co-pilot complained to the authorities that the chief pilot in the flight slapped her during the flight. The incident took place when the aircraft is reportedly flying over the Iran-Pakistan airspace, with 2:45 hours away from its destination, Mumbai.
Reacting on the same, the Jet Airways spokesperson acknowledged the reported incident and stated that it has been amicably and quickly solved. ‘They both [the reported pilots] have been working together for over a decade. They had arguments in the past too. This time the arguments went overboard, and the pilot slapped his co-pilot (woman) in a fit of anger.
She came out of the cockpit crying. The cabin crew persuaded her to get back to the cocking, but she refused. Later, the Captain came out of the cockpit (a violation of flight safety norms) and persuaded her [the co-pilot] to return back. The DGCA is currently investigating the incident,’ said the spokesperson.
