Indian airline Spicejet has removed its two pilots from flying duty for celebrating Holi while operating a flight. The two had kept a cup of beverage over the flight deck's centre console where its little spillage could have affected the passengers' safety. The pilots did this while having gujiyas on the Delhi-Guwahati flight last Wednesday.

The picture showing pilots' irresponsibility went viral on social media platforms. It can be seen that the pilots kept gujiyas and a glass of coffee on the console.

 A Spicejet spokesperson said that appropriate action will be taken upon completion of the investigation into the matter. 

“Both pilots have been off-rostered pending an inquiry. SpiceJet has a strict policy for the consumption of food inside the cockpit which is adhered by all flight crew. Appropriate disciplinary action will be taken upon completion of the investigation," he said.
