During Air India’s Dubai-Delhi flight, a pilot allowed his girlfriend to enter the cockpit. In this matter, now the Directorate General of Civil Aviation (DGCA) has directed the airline to remove all crew members till the completion of the investigation.
Actually, a cabin crew member had complained against the pilot to the DGCA. He told that the pilot took his girlfriend to the cockpit. Both stayed there for an hour. The pilot asked the crew to order pillows for him and serve him alcohol. When the crew refused to serve alcohol in the cockpit, the pilot became enraged and abused them.
This incident happened on 27 February. On this, DGCA formed a committee and started investigation on March 3 itself. If sources are to be believed, the airlines have forbidden their employees from speaking anything in this matter.
Read the complaint sequentially.
The cabin crew said in their complaint that flight AI 915 was having problems with the pilot since its inception on February 27. First he reached late from the reporting time.
