The pilots decided to have a bite to eat during the flight and almost ruined the plane

Indian low-cost carrier SpiceJet punished two of its pilots after they had an in-cabin coffee break, a snack that could have gone completely wrong if one of the hot drinks had been spilled. The edition told in more detail CNN.

The photo, which shows an open cup with the airline's logo perilously close to the controls inside the cockpit, has sparked outrage from the aviation community in India and online.

The pilots, whose faces were not shown in the picture, were also holding gujiyas, a fried sweet pastry commonly eaten during the Holi festival on March 8.

A spokesman for SpiceJet said both pilots were removed from the crew pending an investigation.

“SpiceJet has a strict in-cockpit meal policy that is followed by the entire flight crew. Upon completion of the investigation, appropriate disciplinary action will be taken,” the company said in a statement.

Shakti Loomba, a retired pilot and former chief of operations for Indian flag carrier IndiGo, said "taking a good social media photo" from the pilots was "immature and unwelcome", especially since they are responsible for the safety of the aircraft and its passengers.

“It was completely inexplicable behavior. All pilots are aware of the danger of liquid spills in the cockpit,” he said, adding that most company and aviation regulations prohibit placing any food or liquid on the center console.

Beneath this console is a huge amount of electrical wiring that is vital to aircraft control, and spilling hot drinks on it can cause the technical equipment to overheat or cause the system to shut down.

The low-cost carrier has experienced a number of incidents in the past year that have prompted several investigations by the aviation regulator.

Last May, the SpiceJet's autopilot malfunctioned and caused severe turbulence, resulting in numerous injuries on board.

The regulator, among other things, ordered the carrier's operating flights to be halved for a period of eight weeks after at least eight technical failures occurred.
