NEW DELHI (May 15, 2013)--The cockpit door of one of an Air India plane got jammed during a flight while the captain was using the lavatory, forcing the co-pilot to make an unscheduled landing in central India, the airline said.
An airline statement says the captain couldn't return to the cockpit because the door was locked and that all efforts to open it, even from inside, failed during Tuesday's flight from New Delhi to the southern Indian city of Bangalore.
The co-pilot landed the plane at the nearest airport.
The door was fixed by ground maintenance staff and the plane resumed its flight.
The airline said passengers weren’t in any danger.
