The airline SpiceJet is in controversy again after a picture of a cockpit of the plane showing drinks at the controls went viral. The airline’s pilots have been accused of putting the drink on the fuel cut-off lever. Spilled beverages can damage aircraft controls. In addition, the photo also shows the food resting on the controls in the plane’s cockpit. The allegedly unprofessional behavior seriously jeopardizes the safety of passengers and crew on board, leading to image concerns and questions.
The image was shared on social media by a user named Bandit. The user who shared the image mentioned that such behavior should not be tolerated. The caption read: “Appalling and extremely unprofessional behavior by @flyspicejet pilots.” It continued, “If the liquid (resting on the fuel cutoff levers) is spilled it can short out electronics affecting a number of systems and the… affect the aircraft’s ability to fly safely.”

In the meantime, SpiceJet has had two Boeing 737-800 aircraft deregistered by the Indian aviation authority DGCA. The airline has reiterated that the return of these aircraft will not affect normal business operations. According to notices on the regulator’s website, the Directorate-General for Civil Aviation (DGCA) deregistered VT-SZK and VT-SYA on March 6 and 9, respectively.
Under the Cape Town Convention, lessors and lenders can request de-registration of a leased aircraft in the event of default. The Irrevocable De-registration and Export Request Authorization (IDERA) applies to such requests.
“While one of the aircraft remains grounded for an extended period and was due to be returned sooner, the other is being returned with the lessor due to certain engine issues. Both aircraft are mutually returned in the most efficient manner. This will have no impact on our operations,” the SpiceJet spokesman said.
