Photos: Pakistan International Airlines suspends pilot for sleeping in business class, leaving trainee in charge of the jet

Captain Amir Akhtar Hashmi, a senior pilot with 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.

If I were in his shoes, I would say that it's part of training the trainee. That i wanted to be sure his hands are strong enough to be in charge. Looool. But really isn't it better he slept that flying the plane half asleep? What do I know sef?
