Two Air India pilots have been suspended on charges of allowing actress Nithya Menen into the cockpit during the flight.
Nithya Menen is popular South Indian actress, and is also a singer. Currently Nithya Menen does movie ‘JK Enum Nanbanin Vaazhkai’ directed by Cheran. The last month, Nithya Menen took Air India flight from Bangalore to Hyderabad.
As the flight was in midair, Nithya Menen entered the cockpit and travelled.
A passenger who was aboard the flight complained to the airlines.
Following the complaint, pilots Jagan M Reddy, and S Kumar were suspended. Also, an order has been issued for probe into the matter.
Since such instances are on the rise, aviation authorities are contemplating making amends to the rules and regulations such that stringent punishment is given to those who violate those rules and regulations.
Last month, in a flight from Delhi to Bangalore, the door to cockpit was jammed, and a pilot had to stay out of cockpit.
Following the snag, the flight made an emergency landing in Bhopal. Also, it is to be noted that an airhostess was trapped in the cockpit during a flight.
