SAM PANTHAKY/AFP/Getty Images(NEW YORK) — Just weeks after it was revealed that Air India pilots were suspended for leaving two flight attendants at the controls, comes a report that another flight was diverted when the pilot got locked out of the cockpit.

Perth Now reports an Air India flight from Delhi to Bangalore was rerouted when a pilot couldn’t get back into his seat after a trip to the bathroom.  With the door hopelessly jammed, a trainee pilot safely landed the plane in Bhopal, in central India.

Maintenance crews on the ground were able to get the door unstuck, the site reports.
