New Delhi: Air India has de-rostered the Captain and a crew member after they got into a bitter argument in front of the passengers on board a Bengaluru-Delhi flight on Monday.

The Captain had allegedly asked the crew member to wash his lunch box, leading to a heated exchange between them just before the flight was ready to take off. This reportedly delayed the flight by over an hour.

 

An Air India official confirmed the incident and said an investigation has already been launched. The airline has issued summons to the crew members for questioning.

The matter has been also been reported to the aviation regulator, Directorate General of Civil Aviation (DGCA).
