A Flight Was Delayed for 2 Hours Because Off-duty Pilots Demanded First Class Seats

A Thai Airways flight was delayed two hours last week because two off-duty pilots demanded first class seats while the cabin was completely sold out. The flight was only able to take off after two passengers agreed to bump themselves down to business class.

The airline said in a statement this week that it was sorry for the incident and apologized “to all passengers affected by the unprofessional action that caused the delay,” according to the Bangkok Post.

The Oct. 11 flight from Zurich to Bangkok was scheduled to depart at 1:30 p.m. However, it did not get off the ground until 3:30 p.m., according to Flight Aware. The flight was able to make up some lost time, arriving in Bangkok about 90 minutes later than scheduled.
