...and on arrival requested ILS & overshoot and 3 circuits.:8

Hope the Captain is OK and we didn't bug the FO with too many dumb questions.

Can the F/O log the portion of the flight where the captain of the A/C was incapacitated as Command Time?

Next thing to do: pull out your seniority list and scratch him/her off it!

Seriously, I hope the poor bastard is OK...

i believe the poor fella was struck down with some sorta virus - perhaps not the fish - and had a short spell in hospital, but will be fine :ok:

Maybe he dropped his wallet in the cockpit and put his back out trying to pick it up...

It would have only been a thin light weight wallet as he was a B767 Captain - the lowest paid crews of the mainline fleets. :D

Immediate Action to take over duties of Captain:

Hit the Cabin Crew Call button in the middle of the meal service and ask for a weak tea with Lemon.

And seeing a Flight Attendant delving into their wallet or purse would be even rarer! :}
