This is one of those unbelievable news stories in the past week. Apparently, the cockpit crew of Air India flight from Bangkok to Delhi let two cabin crew members to control the plane (on autopilot), while they took a 40 minute rest in the business class cabin.
Something happened and the auto pilot was turned off. The cockpit crew rushed to the to take control of the plane.
It is quite frightening that the Air India captain could have made such a bad judgment by letting cabin crew members to be in the control of the plane while napping himself in the business class cabin.
