2 Pilots Shelve to Let Actress in Cockpit

Two Air India pilots have been suspended for agreeing to Kannada actress Nithya Menon into the cockpit. The event was stated to Air India authorities by a government officer who was journeying on the similar flight. In defiance of the DGCA guiding principle, the pilots, Jagan M Reddy and S Kiran, permitted Nithya into the cockpit, on the Bangalore-Hyderabad flight last month. While the actress's manager has starved of travelling from Bangalore to Hyderabad in the last three months, reports say she did go for a shoot. With rather a few such incidents coming to front in the past months, the controller is thinking for imposing harsher penalties on the cockpit crew, the sources said, adding that cockpit entrance by a passenger is totally banned since the 9/11 terror strike. In May, the pilot of an Air India flight from Delhi to Bangalore found locked out of the cockpit as the door got blocked, resulting in the co-pilot making an emergency landing in Bhopal. In April, two stewardesses were within the cockpit for just about 45 minutes as one of the two pilots had taken a long break.
