Smile 1st Class

The A380 Captain deserves First Class after the job he did. He did not do it all on his own Metro Man, he had the assistance of his F/O and the rest of his crew.

Just in passing - this was a point very well made by Chesley Sullenberger in his autobiography, and full credit to him for doing so.

The Captain was the head of the team and managed the resources available to secure a safe outcome. He made the decisions and took full responsibility for the consequences.

Whilst not wishing to diminish the contribution of the rest of the crew, who deserve considerable credit for a job well done, ultimately the Captain is the final authority.

Great...he hatched a plan, made some decisions and took the responsibility for them.

Converting the cerebral into reality involved a team, which I bet he was grateful for...

Any good skipper would acknowledge that.

I wish I could still be around to give them my support. Cheers, "Old Flight Engineer".
