Mid-air Holi celebrations aboard eight SpiceJet flights have cost the low-cost carrier dear. The aviation safety watchdog DGCA has issued a show cause notice to the airline and has also suspended two pilots.
The cabin crew of SpiceJet did a short dance sequence on a song for Holi celebrations, with some travellers also partcipating. The events were video-recorded and uploaded on YouTube and other social sites. In one of them video, a pilot can be seen existing the cockpit and taking photos of the celebrations at the front of the aisle. This act violates all safety norms and that's why two pilots were suspended. SpiceJet had tried to defend itself by claiming that the cockpit was manned all the time.
