Pilots Sleep During Flight
A lot of people fall asleep during a flight, especially a long one. But have you ever been asleep on an airplane, only to wake up and find the pilot snoring next to you? Yikes!
That seems to be what happened on a flight from Bangkok to Delhi when two pilots decided to take a break. The plane had been in the air for 30 minutes when First Officer Ravindra Nath and Capt. B.K. Soni allegedly left the cockpit and went to take a nap in business class — after showing two flight attendants how to fly the plane! According to sources, one of the flight attendants accidentally turned off the autopilot 40 minutes later, but luckily for everyone onboard, the actual pilots woke up before tragedy struck. All four crew members have reportedly been suspended. [Source]
