An Air India pilot and a cabin crew member are being investigated after an argument over a lunch box delayed a flight by more than two hours, an official said on Wednesday.
Passengers had already boarded Monday's flight from Bangalore to Kolkata when the purser refused to wash the box containing food that the pilot had brought from home.

They have now been grounded and are being investigated.
