But on Monday, arguments turned violent and the male pilot slapped the woman co-pilot after which she left cockpit cabin crying.
"The cabin crew persuaded co-pilot to go back to the cockpit for fly operations but she refused. Following this, situation became worsen when the male pilot too came out of the cockpit, leaving the operations to the care of a cabin crew made passengers heads over heels with a situation where plane’s both pilots are in front of them.
