- A video of a pilot sleeping while the airplane is in mid-flight has gained much social media attention
- It was enough to cause undue worry among many netizens
- The act was grave enough that the pilot was suspended by the airline company
Sleeping when you are on the plane is normal for passengers, but for pilots, this may be a strict no-no.
KAMI learned that one pilot of a Boeing 747 was caught on video sleeping while the plane is in mid-flight.
It wasn't only the pilot who got reprimanded because the one who took the video was also his co-pilot.
So instead of waking up the pilot, the co-pilot opted to take a video and upload it on social media.
Since it is quite a grave offense considering that passengers lives are at stake, Pilot Weng Jiaqi of China Airlines was suspended.
According to Buzzooks' report, the airline said that Jiaqi is a middle-aged senior pilot with more than 20 years of experience.
He also supervises in training newbie pilots. It was unclear whether Jiaqi wasn't feeling well at the time or was simply very tired, which was why he dozed off.
