Low-cost Airline SpiceJet on 22 April dismissed one of its pilots for supposedly asking an Air Hostess to sit with him in the Cockpit.The pilot reportedly sent his co-pilot out of the cockpit for a long time, leaving the two (pilot and the air hostess) alone.
The incident took place on-board a Boeing 737 Kolkata-Bangkok flight on 28 February. It seems the pilot repeated his activities on the return flight as well. Issuing the statement, Spicejet said, “The inquiry process (in this case) is on and the statement of all the concerned parties has been recorded. Subsequently, the alleged cadre had been expelled.”
