Of course you are more than welcome in commenting on any threads ...pilot or not...I certainly didn’t mean to be disrespectful in my post.

It's not because you are a pilot/cabin attendant/passenger, the consequences of your behaviour would change. Violence is violence......

It becomes more interesting if you step back a lot and try to find out the reason why he slapped in the first place and who should be considered incapacitated.

Couldn't help it...
this is wrong. a pilots responsibilities require a different standard. imo.

and, why, has nothing to do with it, unless it has to do with safety.

What concerns me the most is the FO leaving the cockpit unattended, this under any civilized airline would result in an instant dismissal and regulatory (if not criminal) action. Coupled with the alleged assault this clown should not be let anywhere near a public transport airplane ever again.

But given the country in question (and depending on his connections) I suspect little if nothing will be done.

I suppose its one step better than the two flight attendants left in charge of a Jet A320 for at least 40 minutes whilst the crew snoozed back in first class.

Michel O'Leary once said why two pilots are needed in the cockpit, one is enough. May be a cabin crew should be trained to help when needed. The entire pilot community was pissed off. Can he be blamed with these kind of unprofessional pilots in the cockpit?

From the earlier Air India BKK-DEL episode cited above:

Minutes after his co-pilot left the cockpit, Captain B K Soni called another flight attendant, Kanika Kala, and asked her to take his seat. Captain Soni did not leave the cockpit immediately; instead, he spent a few minutes teaching the two flight attendants how to operate the aircraft.

He left the cockpit after putting the plane on auto-pilot, leaving the flight attendants to operate the flight by themselves for the next 40 minutes while he and his co-pilot took a nap in business class.

At least the, uh, Commander gave the air hostesses some dual on how to fly a plane before he left.
