Pilots fight at 37,000 feet in the cockpit on Iraqi Airways flight


An Iraqi Airways Boeing 737 sits on the tarmac at Baghdad International Airport on September 18, 2004, in Baghdad, Iraq.


Two Iraqi Airways pilots had an argument during a flight and physically fought at 37,000 feet, reports. The aircraft, which left from an Iranian airport on Wednesday and was headed to Iraq, was carrying 157 passengers. 

Iraq's Ministry of Transportation has opened an investigation into the pilots who fought in the air and the pilots have been ordered to stop flying, according to a translation of an Iraqi Airways statement posted on the ministry's website. reports that security guards on the aircraft intervened to break up the fight that passengers say caused damage to the cockpit.

In 2015, Iraqi Airways, the national carrier of Iraq, was put on the EU Air Safety List -- a list of airlines subject to operational restrictions or an operating ban in the European Union. A news release at the time said, "This list is essential to guarantee the highest level of air safety for European citizens, which is an absolute priority of the Commission."


Iraqi Airways suspends pilots who fought over food

BAGHDAD: Iraqi Airways has suspended two of its pilots for getting into a fight — over a food tray — during an international flight with more than 150 passengers on board.

The row erupted on a flight to the capital Baghdad from the Iranian city of Mashhad, with 157 travellers on board plus crew.

“Conversation with the pilot became heated because he forbade an air hostess from bringing me a meal tray, under the pretext that I hadn’t asked him for authorisation,” the co-pilot said in a letter addressed to Iraqi Airways management, seen by AFP.

After the pilot had taken his own meal, he “hit and insulted (the co-pilot), prompting the arrival of a security agent”, according to the letter.

The duo went on to land the plane safely in Baghdad, only to continue their quarrel after landing.

“The pilot again hit and insulted” his colleague, the co-pilot said, admitting that he also lashed out: “I had to defend myself.” AFP has not seen the pilot’s account of the incident and the airline did not detail when the scuffle took place.

“The transport ministry has opened an investigation with the two pilots who argued with each other in-flight,” Iraqi Airways said late Wednesday.

Both have been suspended, the airline said, warning that the two employees “will not escape the toughest sanctions... such as a lifetime flying ban”.

Iraqis responded with horror and mockery to the incident on social media, with one person likening the duo to the country’s minibus drivers who are renowned for racing around at full throttle
