Two Air France pilots were involved in an inflight altercation and exchanged “inappropriate gestures” while in the cockpit of an A320 heading from Geneva to Paris, the airline confirmed on Monday.
The spat, which happened in June 2022, led to the suspension of both pilots, who have not been named by Air France.
“The incident was quickly resolved without affecting the conduct or safety of the flight, which continued normally,” an airline spokesperson said in a statement.
“The pilots concerned are currently suspended from flying and are awaiting a managerial decision on the outcome/treatment of the incident. Air France reminds that the safety of its customers and crew members is its absolute priority.”
Although the incident took place two months ago, it became public due to a story last week in the French-language business newspaper La Tribune which alleges there are larger structural issues with Air France.
CNN has not confirmed any of the additional allegations.
