Perhaps one United pilot losses his license and another gets upgraded to captain?
You sir are a POS.....in case you don't know what POS stands for ... it means you're a f*&king worthless sack of sh!t for saying something so stupid. Even though this guys actions are unexcusable, this is a sickness.....
Just had a good buddy lose his certificates due to this sickness....Can't believe this sh!t is still happening in this day and age......
Safety is our highest priority, that's why our pilot pay and benefits are some of the worst in the industry.http://news.bbc.co.uk/2/hi/uk_news/england/london/8353865.stm
The airline's spokesman said: "Safety is our highest priority and the pilot has been removed from service while we are cooperating with authorities and conducting a full investigation."
Go easy on the kid. I'm guessing he didn't mean it like it sounds. It looks like he's a private pilot who is not familiar with how it works in 121 ops.
Breathalyzers on the start levers... That would work.
...or you guys could start acting like professional pilots. Stop over flying airports, stalling in icing conditions, landing on taxi ways, dying over the Atlantic and showing up drunk.
Just a frickin idea. You wonder where your pay went? Try looking in the dumpster next your your work ethics.
...yeah, I know I'm preachin to the choir, but I do have a point.
