Passenger shocked to find pilot sleeping in business class while trainee pilot handles flight

Major airline operators have made the news for all the wrong reasons in the past few weeks.

And this pilot is not exactly helping matters.

Captain Amir Akhtar Hashmi was the pilot on a flight going to London from Pakistan.

There were over 300 passengers on board the flight, reports ViralNova.

Hashmi also had to train his new co-pilot, Ali Hassan Yazdani, on this flight.

However, a tired Hashmi left his trainee alone to man the plane by himself so that he could take a nap.

A passenger took a photo of Hashmi sleeping in a business class seat while his trainee had to carry through with most of the flight.

Hashmi has since been suspended until further notice by the airline. 

The incident is being investigated.
