Pilot Faces Investigation After Mile High Romp

A Qantas pilot is in hot water for getting a bit too frisky on a London to Sydney flight.

The pilot, who the airline is declining to name, was seen sitting in the lap of a female passenger in the A380's premium section, The Telegraph reports.

The shared seat, 2A, has privacy walls and reclines flat to become a bed. The off-duty pilot, who was not in uniform, was scolded by crew for being too familiar. He moved to economy, but returned to first class once the woman disembarked in Singapore.

"Qantas is aware of an incident involving a travelling crew member on board QF32. The matter is being investigated internally in line with Qantas policy," a spokeswoman told the Herald Sun. "Interaction of that nature is something that wouldn't be sanctioned."

The Australian and International Pilots Association has vowed to come to the pilot's defense.

This is not the first times things have taken a turn for the sexy on a Qantas flight. A stewardess came forward in 2007 with a story about a mile-high tryst with Ralph Fiennes.
