Pilots Take a Nap, Leave Flight Attendants in Charge

We hope we don’t have pilots like these guys man our next flight…or any flight for that matter.

According to MSN, a recent 166-passenger Air India flight was on its way from Bangkok to Delhi when the two pilots on-board decided a little shut eye would be nice. So what did they do? They gave two flight attendants a crash course in flying a plane and then headed to the business section to take a nap.

Apparently they didn’t do a good enough teaching job as one of the flight attendants accidentally turned off the autopilot 40 minutes later. Oops?

Thankfully the pilots woke up before any harm was done. Well at least to the passengers; the four crew members have been suspended following the incident.
