Malaysia Airlines Investigating Report That Co-Pilot Of Missing Flight Invited Two Women To Cockpit In 2011

Posted: Updated:

KUALA LUMPUR, Malaysia (AP) — Malaysia Airlines says it is investigating an Australia television report that the co-pilot on its missing flight had invited two women to stay in the cockpit for a flight two years ago.

Jonti Roos described the encounter on the program "A Current Affair." It aired multiple still photographs from Roos that showed the women inside the cockpit and the pilots apparently working the plane's controls.

The airline said late Tuesday it wouldn't comment about the report until its investigation into it is complete.

Roos said Fariq Abdul Hamid and the second pilot talked to her and her friend in the cockpit during the entire flight in December 2011 from Phuket, Thailand, to Kuala Lumpur.

Roos didn't immediately reply to a message sent to her via Facebook.
