A Pakistani pilot Captain Amir Akhtar Hashmi working for the Dreamliner Pakistan International Airlines has been suspended after photos of him sleeping on board a plane emerged on social media.
According to Mirror, Hashmi allegedly slept for two-and-a-half-hours in a business class seat on board the Pakistan International Airlines (PIA) flight from Islamabad to London on April 26.
A passenger on flight PK-785 filed a complaint with the airline along with the snap of the dozing captain. Hashmi should have been in control of the 305-seater Boeing 777 plane during the eight-hour flight to Heathrow but he was reported to have placed a pilot trainee in charge of the jet.
However, an investigation has been launched into the incident following the complaints to Pakistan International Airlines. With mirror.co.uk
