    The captain of the Boeing-737 was busy taking selfies with young flight attendant, ten minutes after the take-off.

    Japan Airlines Co. pilot of the Boeing-737 violated flight regulations and has been suspended as he was taking selfies with his smartphone while partner was away.

    The 47-year-old pilot was photographing himself with a 28-year-old flight attendant in the cockpit 10 minutes after the take-off of the airplane flying from northern Japan to Osaka.

    Cockpit safety has been closely scrutinized after the Germanwings flight catastrophe.
