I don’t go into cockpit without her

flihtAn Air India pilot reportedly refused to fly unless his favourite female co-pilot was sitting next to him leaving more than 100 passengers stranded for hours.

Around 110 passengers flying from Chennai to Male via Thiruvananthapuram in India were forced to wait in the grounded Air India plane for almost three hours following the incident.

I don’t go into cockpit without her, he reportedly said. He was given a show cause notice. He is currently serving his notice period.

The pilot reportedly said he would not fly the plane after his request to the airline for the co-pilot was refused. Eventually the airliner acquiesced and arranged for the co-pilot to join him on the flight.
