It is not known why the pilot let the woman into the cockpit but his actions violated regulations “by allow irrelevant personnel into the secure area Air Guilin said in a statement

After a photograph of a female passenger sitting in the cockpit along with food went viral, the pilot has been banned from flying on November 5.

According to the official media "Global Times" reported that the incident occurred on GT1011 flight from Guilin to Yangzhou on January 4.

The picture shows a woman posing in the cockpit with a refreshment next to it.

China's aviation laws forbid passengers from entering the cockpits of commercial aircraft.

This photo was shared wildly on Chinese social media with the caption below that translates to "Thanks to the captain".

The photo appeared on Weibo, the Chinese version of Twitter, sparking a social media backlash.

SpaceX achieves key milestone in safety testing of Crew Dragon spacecraft
While it might seem like a routine next step, an uncrewed capsule exploded during the same test just a few months ago in April. SpaceX performs a parachute test for its Dragon capsule over the Delamar Dry Lake in Nevada in August 2017.

The captain violated regulations of the Civil Aviation Administration of China (CAAC) by allowing an unauthorised person into the cockpit, the Air Guilin statement said.

Chinese aviation specialists were informed of the image with many pointing out that the pilot had violated one of the cardinal sins of flight: Letting a non-crew member into the cockpit while the plan is in mid-flight. The airline did not confirm whether the photo was taken during the flight, but analysts reportedly suggest that it was.

However, after the extensive sharing of so-called screenshots of passenger posts on Weibo's Weibo site, Sunday caught the attention of airlines. "I'm truly too happy!"

Her identity has not been revealed publicly, and the screenshot shared by "Confirmation Signal" had blurred out the woman's eyes and the poster's name. Along with the pilot, other officials in the duty during the flight have also been "suspended indefinitely" with additional investigations being underway.

The airlines on Monday mentions in a statement that they have suspended the accused pilot "for life". According to CNN, a representative for the company told the state-run Beijing Youth Daily newspaper that every carrier has its own rules and can decide whether or not to hire him. Whether or not she is connected personally to the pilot is not yet known.
