India’s Aviation regulator DGCA on Wednesday suspended the flying licence of a senior Jet Airways pilot who allegedly slapped a female commander of the airline’s London- Mumbai flight on January 1.

An Air tragedy was averted despite a fight between two pilots mid air recently. A pilot couple had a fight inside the cockpit of a Jet Airways London-Mumbai flight, which landed safely. After the woman came out crying, the senior cabin crew had to ask her to go back to the cockpit.

After flight 9W 119 landed, the incident was reported to Jet Airways.

According to media reports Jet Airways has grounded two of its senior pilots following a mid-air fight on a London-Mumbai flight on January 1, in which the male commander allegedly slapped his female co-pilot.

The incident took place this Monday, when the aircraft was over the Iran-Pakistan airspace, and was 2.45 hours away from its destination, an airline source said.

The airline has reported the matter to the DGCA and the pilots involved in the incident have been taken off duties pending investigation that is underway, the airline spokesperson said.
