MUMBAI (AFP) – An Indian airline said yesterday it had grounded two pilots over allegations they had a fight and both stormed out of the cockpit during a New Year’s Day flight from London to Mumbai. Jet Airways is investigating claims a male pilot slapped his female colleague during an argument while the plane was in the air with 324 passengers on board. Reports in Indian newspapers, quoting unnamed sources, said the mid-air altercation led the female pilot to leave the cockpit in tears and she had to be persuaded to go back in by cabin crew. At one point the male pilot also left the cockpit, leaving the controls briefly unattended, the Times of India claimed.
