However, those two pilots might deserve the gaol.
I should have speculated that instead of jail time what is more likely to occur with the tight brotherhood of Air India pilots is the argument: "We were fatigued, that overnight red-eye to Bangkok and out again had us exhausted, we were actually acting in a safe manner by resting in business class". Naturally, the company would try to sack them or the DGCA to bring charges but knows that is a risky thing to do since the air India pilots may start a sympathy strike. It's happened more than once for similar antics and grounded the money losing airline to halt.
