Passenger Spots Can Of Stella In Cockpit In Plane Cockpit

Passenger Spots Can Of Stella In Cockpit In Plane Cockpit

A passenger has spoken of his outrage at seeing a can of Stella Artois in the cockpit of the plane he was travelling in from Spain to Birmingham.

Steve Lewis couldn't believe his eyes when the cockpit door opened after the Jet2 plane landed in the UK, and there was a beer sitting next to one of the pilots.

He said: "The plane had landed and the seat belt light came off. I stood up to get my suitcase and as I did the cockpit door opened and I noticed the can in the cockpit.

"I turned to my partner, Steven, who didn't believe me at first, but then he noticed you could clearly see the Stella branding. I was so shocked, I couldn't understand why there was alcohol in the cockpit."

The company came back to the 59-year-old and said that the Stella can had been placed there for 'safe keeping' after a passenger handed it to a member of the cabin crew.

A Jet2 spokesperson said: "Upon further investigation of the photograph, we can confirm that it is an unopened can which had been handed to a member of our cabin crew by a customer when they were leaving the aircraft.

"This unopened can was then put down in the cockpit by the member of cabin crew, so that she could continue helping customers as they disembarked."

If you look at the image, you can make out that the can isn't open, but that didn't matter to Steve, who says: "It even had a napkin underneath it which is how they serve drinks to passengers. It concerns me that alcohol is even allowed in the cockpit, if it was open or not."

Steve is still unhappy, however, and claims that he still hasn't heard anything from the investigation.

I'm not sure what he's worried about, there was an unopened can of alcohol inside the cockpit 20 minutes after the plane had touched down. It's not as if he was chugging a bottle of spirits and doing loop-de-loops mid-air.
