Sri Lankan pilot flew with two women in cockpit?

In a blatant disregard for aviation rules and ignoring passenger safety, the pilot of a Sri Lankan Airlines flight (No. UL 172) bound for Colombo from Bengaluru International Airport, allegedly allowed two women to accompany him in the cockpit for the entire length of the journey.

Passengers on the flight, which took off from BIA around 9.15 pm on Friday, claimed that the two women travelled in the cockpit all through. The passengers, who were worried about their safety, protested.

According to Gowtham Udayashankar, a Bengaluru resident, who travelled by business class on the flight, the two women got into the cockpit immediately after the flight took off from BIA.

“The women were in seat nos. 6C and 9E. They spent whole travel time inside the cockpit. Even though passengers repeatedly requested them to come out, they did not,” he said.

According to Udayashankar, the women, who were carrying bottles of beer in their hand, claimed that the pilot was their cousin.

“The flight landed around 11.25 pm and passengers are still at the airport protesting. We will lodge a complaint with the airline authorities on Saturday,” he told Deccan Chronicle from Colombo.

It is natural for the other

It is natural for the other passengers to feel insecure in the current era of global terrorism.

I remember those glorious days of freedom when there was no threat to airlines people were allowed a visit to the cockpit and given a brief education of how a plane works.

I wish those days would come back and the people who do not have the priviledge to be a relative of the pilot be accommodated too.

By the way in lighter vain.....isn't that a place for girls anyway. I mean the cockpit.lol

this animal pilot who violated basic principle must send to jail to secure name of national carrier.

I want to begin with a little story that was told to me by a leading executive at Aptech. He was exercising in a gym with a lot of younger people.

Shekhar Kapur’s Bandit Queen didn’t make the cut. Neither did Shaji Karun’s Piravi, which bagged 31 international awards.
