Two Air India pilots derostered for flying Nithya Menon in the cockpit
With her dark curls and an innocent smile there is no doubt that Nithya Menon has an aura that can make the opposite sex weak at the knees. Unfortunately for a selected few, her charm has done more harm than good. Well, the pilots who offered to fly her over on the Bangalore/Hyderabad flight recently are in deep trouble. Apparently, both the pilots namely – S Kiran and Jagan M Reddy, were obliged as the actress sought permission to sit beside them in the cockpit!
Fascinated by her star power, they let her in!!! Little did they know that close observers around could get them a suspension in no time. In fact, even though the flying rules clearly state that the cockpit seat is primarily reserved for examiners authorized by Directorate General of Civil Aviation (DGCA) and co pilots, the flyer’s broke the law at their own comfort risking lives of other passengers on board.
Regarding which the DGCA chief Arun Mishra disclosed in a press meet.“Air India’s a reputed name in the aviation industry and we cannot tolerate careless management at any degree. We have sent a detailed report to the Civil Aviation Ministry. I am sure there will be a decision on this issue” Post this incident, Nithya Menon has been staying away from pubic glare as she looks forward to her Tamil-Telugu bilingual – Malini 22 Palayamkottai.
