A brawl broke out in the cockpit between two pilots

Two Air-France pilots have been suspended after a physical altercation in the cockpit, reports say.

The captain and first officer exchanged blows as they flew an Airbus A320 from Geneva to Paris in June, Swiss news outlet La Tribune said.

Members of the cabin crew intervened after hearing the noise. One crew member stayed in the cockpit until the flight landed safely.

The incident did not affect the flight, the airline told La Tribune.

The incident comes after a report published by France's air investigation body on Tuesday said that the airline had a culture which lacked rigour when it came to safety procedures.
