Qatar Airways flight diverted after pilot dies onboard
The flight was diverted to Malaysia, where a new crew was secured. The flight arrived in Doha just over four hours after its scheduled arrival.
The pilot's speculated cause of death was a heart attack, but the airline has yet to confirm the cause of death or if the flight was ever at risk.
The last reported case of a pilot dying in flight happened on a Continental flight from Brussels to Newark in June of 2009.
What a terrifying ordeal. Our thoughts go out to the pilot's family.
