Qantas Pilots Grounded for Arguing in Cockpit

Qantas's flight operations managers kept the jumbo on the ground overnight.


QANTAS has stood down two pilots who argued in the cockpit of a Boeing 747 on the tarmac at Dallas's international airport.

A captain and second officer on a 747-400 disagreed over the take-off calculations they should be punching into the passenger jet's computer, Fairfax Media reports.

Qantas is investigating the dispute and has grounded the pilots.
