Apr 17th 2010 8:56PM RBJ, just happened to read this, are you just stupid or uninformed. Payne Stewarts incident happened over time and the crew first were incapacitated by a slow decrease in the O2 level as they climbed to altitude. After that, the temp in the cabin fell to a level where the occupants were in freezing conditions, but were most probably already dead from lack of oxygen. You people who have no idea what you're talking about should refrain from putting out erroneous info.
Dec 30th 2009 10:31AM It doesn't really matter where your training or experience comes from, more on the attitude of the individual as has already been mentioned. As a retired Captain, I've seen the Good, Bad, and ugly. Now I sit in the terminal and watch the crew members wandering by. What amazes me are the ones that have no pride in what they do. If an individual looks like he just jumped out of bed having slept in his uniform, my thoughts are that he probably approaches his flying with the same attitude.
After two years flying in India recently with co-pilots who came to the job with perhaps 300hrs of flight time, and move immediately into the right seat of an airbus A-320, you find out very quickly who you can depend on. Normally, it's the guy with the best attitude.
Dec 29th 2009 3:28PM Gotta hand it to those dems, they know how to get down in the trenchs with Joe plumber or is he in rehab now. Watch out, you may have to pay the whole medical bill.
Jan 24th 2008 10:38AM Somehow, I can't believe that a few hours without food is starvation. Of course, in todays America, if you're not putting something in your mouth, you're going to have major psychological problems. This persons problem was most probably that they were so fat they couldn't fit in the coach seats.
