View Full Version : High jinks on the flight deck.

British tabloid the Sun has splashed an Easyjet crew having fun on the flight deck.


SHOCKPIT ‘Unprofessional’ EasyJet pilots caught playing games on Snapchat at 30,000ft with a plane full of passengers

AN easyJet co-pilot is filmed dancing by his captain as they mess around on a Snapchat game while flying a plane full of *passengers at 30,000ft.

Neither man is looking at the controls or out through the cockpit windscreen as the flier gyrates with a cartoon character *created by the daft app.

The antics were filmed during a Paris to Madrid flight on Wednesday and posted on captain Michel Castellucci’s social media account pilot_flyingnut.

In another photo, Mr Castellucci posed with a cuddly bear image superimposed on his face. Angry passengers called the high jinks “irresponsible”.

The high jinks were branded dangerous and unprofessional on Thursday night.

Mr Castellucci, who is regularly in charge of jets to and from London, shared the film on social media, adding the caption: “Dancing first officer in cruise doing paperwork.”
In another video shared by the captain from their Paris to Madrid flight, a virtual owl dances beside the co-pilot, who turns and smirks inanely at the end of the footage.

EasyJet was investigating the videos — while Mr Castellucci and his dancing junior colleague faced a stern ticking off.

The footage was captured as scores of passengers sat oblivious to the schoolboy antics behind the cockpit door.

Mr Castellucci posted the film on his Instagram and Facebook accounts — adding emoticons of a plane and a laughing face plus hashtags including #easyjet, #a320, and #pilotlife.

An easyJet spokesman said: “Whilst at no point was the safety of the passengers compromised, this falls short of the high standards easyJet expects of its pilots.

“We will speak to the pilots involved.”

That's it?! Sheesh, the lad was strapped in and his modest gyrations could hardly be called 'antics'. I imagine the artwork was done later when all schools and gaggles of nuns and lawyers had been avoided.

One of my captains was slightly built and used to sit on the outer armrest with his feet on the cushion; quite often crews didn't belt up. I'd sooner have this crew than go back to those (sub)standards.

Nevertheless, in this day and age it was very naive for the Captain to post it on social media.

Just how stupid do you have to be to post this globally, using your employer's hashtag, and not see that it might, just, end up getting you into trouble?

Their error seems to be in not keeping the jokes to themselves, but that's not how a lot of the general public will see it; those that assume that pilots really fly aeroplanes all the time. I doubt there's anyone who's not done "something for a laugh" when flying, which is fine, as long as it's safe (as this larking about almost certainly was), but posting images that anyone, including employers and regulators can see is a different thing entirely.

FWIW, I once flew under a bridge, on take off, during a GFT, and still passed OK....................

So, the criticism is not about the behaviour on the flight-deck, but the use of social media to publicise the behaviour?

Yes, in my view. Larking about, without endangering the aircraft or breaking any regulations, isn't a sin, is it? It's unprofessional in my view, but then that's a word that's been diluted a lot over recent years, hasn't it?

The captain seems like a nice guy to fly with. I'll rather fly with him than a clone that sits and stares out the window for 10 hours.

I agree maybe not good idea to post on a public forum however. I wonder how many people are running to review ther privacy settings on Facebook etc?.....

There is a clip somewhere of a hostie stripping down to her undercrackers on the flight deck and I would be grateful (as I am sure most of us would) if someone could post it here.


I would be much happier if the crew were alert, swapping stories, playing chess or doing Blackadder impressions (as one pilot mate told me when Rowan Atkinson was on board) than snoring their heads off.


Their only error was getting caught by a jobsworth.

The pilots have been suspended according to reports on the BBC website and elsewhere.
EasyJet suspends pilots over social media posts - BBC News (http://www.bbc.com/news/uk-england-beds-bucks-herts-43514782)


The EasyJet pilots have been suspended pending a disciplinary investigation said the airline.

Two EasyJet pilots have been suspended after footage emerged of them using a mobile phone app while flying.
The Luton-based airline said it was taking the matter "seriously" and the actions were "not acceptable".
As reported in The Sun, a pilot filmed another pilot dancing with an "animated woman" from a Snapchat game and writing a report "with an owl" dancing on the screen beside him.
EasyJet said passenger safety was not compromised.
A spokeswoman for EasyJet said it happened when the aircraft was in cruise control and the flight operated safely.
She said: "Whilst at no point was the safety of the passengers compromised, this falls well short of the high standards EasyJet expects of its pilots.
"It is not acceptable and is not representative of the thousands of highly professional pilots who work for the airline.
"We take this issue seriously and, as such, the pilots have been suspended (in line with our procedures) pending a disciplinary investigation."
The Sun said it happened on a Paris to Madrid flight on Wednesday.

To be fair that would be the response by most companies. You have to be shown to do something for people to lose interest and the story to become even more of a non-story. Stern telling off and back onto the line (hopefully).

Maybe rog, but a bit of the blame has to be pointed in the direction of whoever decided to go onto social media and post the images..

Of course at least airline now has a handful of nominated and approved social media ambassadors and has put in place a ban on the rest workforce (pilots or cabin crew) from taking images of anything from the Flight Deck from below FL200...but that would be a digression from the thread...:E:E

Not too many years ago, I spent a riotous few hours on the flightdeck of a 747 operated by a Big Airline based in the UK whose skipper was well known to pass the hours in the cruise with his non-stop Elvis Presley impersonations. Some posters on here may also remember him.

Of course, there was no Youtube, Facebook, etc in those days.

The FO that day told me that the Skipper's devotion to Elvis extended to that he even spent many of his off days holed up in his small motorhome, parked on a cliff edge overlooking the Channel, with an old Dansette record player and his collection of Elvis Presley LPs.

Each to his own, I suppose.

This is such BS story made by ignorant journalists trying to make something out of nothing.

And exactly what did the FO do?

It’s beyond a joke, sorry.

So misleading article and it attracts ignorant people who have no idea of what Snapchat is.

I am surprised if these actions are true. Making a 20 second film on your phone at cruise is not exactly the sensation the journalist is trying to create.
I would suggest the pilots sue the newspaper on this.

You've missed the point; adolescent antics on a flight deck, in the cruise, by supposed adults and recording them are pretty silly. But that's all.

Posting them on social media for the world to see was so stupid that the person who did it cannot conceivably be considered as having rational judgement, and therefore shouldn't be allowed to drive a taxi, let alone an airliner.

Teenagers post videos of themselves doing stupid things, but mostly they grow out of that by the time they are 18, except in the USA.

Let’s get this into perspective.
First the FOs did not have any active part in this. They was just filmed, and had know control of film/photo or its usage afterwards.

I personally don’t find such things funny, and would never bother even doing.
The news sensation was trying to create a narrative that these pilots was risking safety and doing some crazy things with owls, and various other animated creatures.

This is the point, these are animated creatures superimposed on your film, it’s not someone going to extreme lengths to do something funny in the cockpit. It simply opening an App and just film or make a photo.

Did this distract the pilots in their duty and endanger the aircraft ?
Anymore than if they had filmed a crew member having a controlled rest. Imagine if a controlled rest would have been filmed and made public, it all depends on the narrative presented.

I am not defending the Captains actions, but things need to be put into perspective.

Putting it on social media, so what? I personally would not have done it, but I can’t see the big deal.
Are you not allowed anymore to show your love of the job?

Would this been a story if the Captain had filmed the flight deck without the Avatars in the film?
Just shows how dumb people have become, it would have been a non story if he had just filmed the FO doing his paperwork.

Do you maybe believe they had toys and animals with in the cockpit that distracted them?

This is 2018, not 1980, move on, nothing to see here.

F/O left his seat to visit the toilet with a young lady passenger visiting the flight deck holding a very young baby, as he passed her he suggested that the baby must be heavy, why didn't she put it down for a few minutes whilst he was away? Whereupon he took the baby from her and placed it on his seat. The baby did what comes naturally and leaned forward and touched the control column, whereupon the F/O produced a camera - where from I often wonder, this was long before Smartphones > - and took the picture, which to my horror found its way on to the pages of the then Company magazine. Nobody seemed to comment unfavourably, but there were some notes about was it now necessary to recruit them so young, but it didn't need a magnifying glass to read the altimeter - at 33,000 ft !

I have a picture of a stewardess sat in my seat, with my 14 yr. old son on her knee, and again it doesn't need much perusing to see that the aircraft was obviously airborne - - which I'm not showing anybody !!

Never saw the program, but if that is true it does not reflect well on the judgement of the TRE knowing they were on camera and about to be broadcast into 000000m's of homes. It hardly helps the cause of trying to enhance the image of an airline captain, and training captain at that. Not being a prude, but there are times & places, and on camera is neither. Off camera: what happens in the flight deck stays in the flight deck.

come on EZY you cannot have it both ways - its two faced to bow to Press media pressure to say this was unsafe or unprofessional (yes maybe daft) when you quite happily air a TV reality show showing your flight deck crews in action

Well quite so!...you gotta appeal to a lowest common denominator type via 'Reality TV' info show...really an advert. , but at the same time you need to jump on things like this to protect your image etc. .... Can't see anything wrong in what was done other than stupidty...that is no safety threat....

Snapchat what their roster is...is maybe far more revealing of a systemic safety issue!! (Note..I do not know EZY rosters I have not seem them)
