    Jet Airways Pilots Suspended for Snoozing, Using iPad While Flying

    Two Jet Airways pilots were suspended after the plane they were flying Friday plunged 5,000 feet while the pilot was asleep and the co-pilot was on her iPad. The captain was on a scheduled break when the aircraft, traveling from Mumbai to Brussels, took a sharp dip. Turkish air traffic controllers alerted the co-pilot that they were flying at an altitude assigned to another plane. The co-captain, who was checking flight information on her iPad, then woke the pilot who took control.
