In a statement, the national carrier said the officer has been placed under suspension.
"The argument over such a trivial issue on a short-duration flight led to the delay of the flight by 33 minutes," it said.
Details about the suspended official and when the incident happened could not be immediately ascertained.
"Indiscipline of any sort will not be tolerated from any employee irrespective of hierarchy or area of work," the statement said.
