This actually brings me a measure of comfort. I don't want the two guys flying my plane bickering.

Better to not fly than to fly with someone you aren't comfortable with.

This!!! The pilot and co-pilot have to work together and catch each other if they make a mistake. A hostile environment could lead to situations where they don't listen to each other and larger issues happen. This is a big cause of plane crashes. Not saying they would likely crash. But it's an added risk for no good reason.

Great but maybe they should determine who was most responsible and fire him and if the other guy has further inter-personal issues then fire him too.

Better that than, "Junior pilot refuses to take control as senior pilot ignores protocol and shorts the runway. Cultural hierarchy to blame."

I've read enough Admiral Cloudberg to know that I'll take good CRM and a delay over bad CRM and "on time", any day of the year.

Good call to cancel. High emotions and interpersonal conflict are a safety issue.

“We should keep the seatbelt sign on in gentle air for 50 minutes after liftoff!”

“No! We should sit on the tarmac for 90 minutes without saying a word!”

… if only they realized, with Spirit Airlines, they could both be right. 🚫🚽🛩️

This is good, bad communication can lead to fatal errors. Having the crew be professional enough to realize they do not get along and would not be a good pair to fly is very responsible. I respect the crew for choosing not to fly.

What a dumb argument to have, we all know right twix is the only twix worth having.

I feel there is more to this story.

Tldr; One of them didn’t want to kiss the homies goodnight. His loss. Weirdo.

Sorry about your liver transplant, Timmy, but until Chuck reimburses me for the golf we played on Sunday this plane isn't going to take off

For those too lazy to read the article: their names are not “Paul” and “John”.


agonypants t1_iujwu79 wrote

It's not quite on-topic, but I'm reminded of a headline I saw earlier today that Kyle Rittenhouse wants to be a pilot for UPS or FedEx. I had a very similar thought when I read it - NO farking WAY I would pilot/co-pilot with that waste of oxygen.

I mean any job is simple if you describe it like that!

It was the middle of a storm, and the pilot did not feel comfortable taking off. Copilot wanted to take off.

Sounds more like a very unprofessional disagreement to me.

I am not a fan of Alaska airlines. They canceled my flight because of crew scheduling issues. Seems like they could have figured that out sooner.

There’s Pilot shortage look it up. maybe help us fill the gap and go to flight school. :)


sghokie t1_iujz9xq wrote

Maybe don’t schedule flights when there’s no pilots available.
