Airline pilots talk shop, but would you really want to listen?

Tuesday, 10 September, 2013

If you thought reading about the way some occupations actually work, compared to how you think they work, was disconcertingly revealing, wait until you hear some of the things commercial pilots have to say:

Some FAA rules don’t make sense to us either. Like the fact that when we’re at 39,000 feet going 400 miles an hour, in a plane that could hit turbulence at any minute, [flight attendants] can walk around and serve hot coffee and Chateaubriand. But when we’re on the ground on a flat piece of asphalt going five to ten miles an hour, they’ve got to be buckled in like they’re at NASCAR.
