Air India pilots fight in mid-air
05 / 10 / 2009
AIR India pilots fought cabin crew on an international flight from the UAE to India over allegations of sexual harassment.
The fight is said to have started in the cockpit, when the cabin crew claimed the pilots sexually harassed a 24-year-old air hostess, before spilling out in front of surprised passengers. However, on landing, when the police arrived to investigate, the pilots counter claimed that the harassment claim was an attempt to divert attention from accusations of misconduct against a male flight attendant.
Air India has launched an inquiry and grounded all the staff involved.
