re: JetBlue captain flips out


So, another captain who was flying off duty took over?

Did they have a co-pilot on this flight or was this plane just lucky enough to have another captain flying offduty?

You always have at least 2 pilots flying. The FO was just lucky that their was another pilot onboard to help him out the rest of the way in.

The pilot went into a toilet, then emerged "shouting, 'Iraq, al-Qaeda, terrorism, we're all going down.' It seemed like he went crazy," said Gabriel Schonzeit, of New York City, who was seated in the third row.

Damn dude just lost it. Luckily the way planes are these days even if there wasn't an off duty Captain on board the FO would be able to get it on the ground no problem. Crew Resource Management has changed a lot and not the pilot not flying is merely a human double check.

He's lucky there weren't air marshals aboard. They're so bored they would have emptied out on the Dude just for something to do.

Shouldn't airline pilot be a profession where there is no room for mental instability?

I'm never flying JetBlue if they're into hiring psychos.

The crazed captain’s outburst came after he was booted from the cockpit, passengers said.


I like how his crew apparenlty simply booted him out of the cockpit for the passengers to deal with.

re: JetBlue captain flips out


I am glad I did not pick Pilot as my career choice.

Airports / cramped airplanes / sitting on my arse all day / talking to same idiots all day.

Not for me.
