Jet Airways Derosters Pilots For Fighting Inside the Cockpit of London-Mumbai Flight An airport spokesperson said that after the incident, all passengers were offloaded for completing security procedures.(File Photo/Reuters) Mumbai: A Jet Airways flight carrying 324 passengers, including two infants, had a close shave after sources said two pilots fought inside the cockpit of a London-Mumbai flight on January 1.

Subsequently, Aviation regulator DGCA suspended the flying licence of the senior pilot who allegedly slapped a female commander of the airline's London-Mumbai flight on January 1.

The two senior pilots have been grounded by Jet Airways since the incident. Besides physically assaulting the woman commander, the pilot also left the cockpit unattended twice, which is in violation of the safety norms leading to the suspension of his licence, according to a senior official of the DGCA.

When contacted, a Jet Airways spokesperson said there was a "misunderstanding" between the cockpit crew and the same was "resolved amicably" and "quickly".

"A misunderstanding occurred between the cockpit crew of 9W119 London-Mumbai flight on January 1. However, the same was quickly resolved amicably and the flight with 324 guests including two infants and 14 crew members completed its journey in Mumbai safely," the airline spokesperson said.

However, the source alleged that the male pilot who has been working with the airline for over a decade had some "argument" with the female commander over some issues. The source said these two senior pilots have been flying together for many years and have had arguments in the past as well. But on Monday, arguments turned violent and the male pilot slapped the woman commander after which she came out of the cabin crying, the source alleged.

"The cabin crew persuaded her to go back to the cockpit but she refused. Following this, the male pilot came out of the cockpit, leaving the operations to the care of a cabin crew (which is a violation of flight safety norms) and persuaded her to return to the cockpit," the source said.
