A pilot created a hijacking scare when he got stuck in the lavatory during a flight in the US. The captain of the Delta flight accidentally locked himself in the bathroom during the flight from Asheville, North Carolina, to New York. The co-pilot became alarmed and notified air-traffic control after a passenger, with a thick foreign accent, tried to alert the cockpit of the problem. The conversation between the co-pilot and the control tower was recorded and posted on air traffic control website LiveATC.net. He [the pilot] is stuck in the lav and someone with a thick foreign accent is giving me a password to access the cockpit - and Im not about to let him in, the co-pilot said. Indianapolis-based Chautauqua Airlines said the pilot had decided to answer the call of nature about 30 minutes from landing but had become trapped. ON
