The pilots were in the capital after they were directed by the DGCA to appear before it on Tuesday after its Joint Director General took offence at not being addressed with the correct designation in a letter written by them to him.

Sources said that "the DGCA official suspended the ten pilots from flying duties and asked the airline to check their mental alertness since they could not even quote a designation properly."

There was no immediate comment from Jet Airways and the DGCA.
