crappy passengers

Nice thing about owning your own airline is that you can tell passengers when they are not welcome on your aircraft. When they kick up hell and ask to speak to the CEO/Owner/Boss you just say "you are". Only done it a couple of times on the last 30 years, but it feels great when you do it. (down side is that you generally do not get paid for that charter!)

Wink Chill out


The article written about the pilot by Jet streams, rather reminds me of an Indian Moves were tears, sadness, love, death and revenge involve in the making, Not necessarily in that order! Most professional pilots do not take an offence to the term Glorified Driver. BUT they are supper drivers though.
Cheers
Safe and happy flying to all from Cybil,manuel and polly!

Angel Justice done alas !!!

I belive that the pilot has won the case against the MP and Mr Wahab(the MP) is banned from flying with Air India on the grounds of illegal(unauthorized) entry into the cockpit.. Cheers to all and Happy Landings

Hats off to Jetstream for bringing this article to light! Indian MPs are notorious for being crooks, if you need any assurance you just need to pick up any Indian newspaper.....

I wonder if Mr Wahab is a distant relative of Ed Balls?

Well, the latest news snippets suggest the MP is backing of due to lack of support from his political cronies.

Note to MPs: When you screw the country in the many little and big ways, do it behind closed doors, not in the full view of the public.

"Indian MPs are notorious for being crooks" - Just Indian MPs?

Very well written by jetstreams.
I kind of lost faith in politicians from India after the bribery scandal we had in Sweden years ago involving the Bofors sell of arms to the Indian army. The Indian politicians were outraged!!. Not by the bribing itself but by not being on the payroll by Bofors....

I suppose a one way of explaining the captains action of why he threw him offboard is: "I believed that the said person would not follow orders given by the crew in case of emergency, so I had to disembark him"

I would guess that it would be sufficient, wouldn't you think ?
