‘My life is s**t’: EasyJet pilot suspended after telling friends he felt suicidal, reports say
UK airline EasyJet has suspended a pilot after he discussed taking his own life in an online chat, local media reported. The news revives memories of a German pilot who crashed his A320 into the Alps, killing all on board.
The grounding came after EasyJet learned that the pilot, whose name is being withheld, said he felt suicidal. The man reportedly told his friends on WhatsApp that “my life is s**t” and “I’m probably going to kill myself,” British media reported.
The suicidal messages were eventually brought to the airline’s attention, and his superiors immediately suspended him from flying passenger planes.
