What should we do with the drunken pilot?

This made me laugh this morning. Typical Daily Mail reporting. Some poor Captain suffered a stroke on an Aeroflot flight, and the passengers were convinced he was drunk. Quite understandably, they were slightly panicked...

What really made me laugh was this:

Airline officials came on board to calm the situation, with one telling a passenger that even if the pilot was drunk 'it wasn't such a big deal'. He added: 'Really, all he has to do is press a button and the plane flies itself. The worst that could happen is he'll trip over something in the cockpit.'

That is nothing short of hilarious. Bless those little ignorant 'airline officials'!

  1. Oh my God!!!! That is so crap! Somewhat worrying that he was all ready to fly though, he must have noticed he wasn't fit to fly!?

    Aeroflot seem to have a bit of a dodgy reputation in general.
