SpiceJet has taken strict actions against two pilots for jeopardising flight safety by keeping the gujiyas and beverage they were eating on a critical console in the cockpit.
The airline has now grounded these pilots for risking the lives of the flyers onboard the Delhi-Guwahati SpiceJet flight. The incident took place on Holi celebrated across the nation on March 8, Wednesday.
“Both pilots have been off rostered pending an inquiry. SpiceJet has a strict policy for consumption of food inside the cockpit which is adhered by all flight crew. Appropriate disciplinary action will be taken upon completion of the investigation,” a SpiceJet spokesperson said.
