Nov 3rd 2009 11:32AM Pretty soon Congress will decide that they need to be the ones hiring pilots, not the airlines. This government oversight after every aviation incident needs to stop. They will end up doing much more harm than good.
Jul 16th 2009 11:49AM It's so true!! It's not over until the cabin door is closed! I always commuted out of MCO, and it can be CRAZY there. When my boyfriend got his first airline job I gave him the rundown of how close to stand to the gate without being obnoxious, how to try and make sure the crew sees you so you have a better chance of getting on, and that as soon as you get on that airplane - hide!!!
The jumpseat is a wonderful, wonderful thing. As long as no other pilots are trying to get on that flight, too!! I'm 5' tall and actually had a gate agent look me up and down and say "Ok, cockpit jumpseat for you. I'm putting you down as a half-weight." Instant diet!
