Dating an airline pilot - adult dating centerburg ohio
UNLESS YOU’VE BEEN living in a hole over the past couple of weeks, you’ve seen or heard (and maybe, like me, grown very tired of) the story about the passenger being forcibly removed from an overbooked United Express regional jet in Chicago.
To avoid it coming to this, carriers will offer a reward, usually in the form of a travel voucher, in exchange for a seat, and usually with the guarantee of a seat on a flight later that day. Whether or not the man, upon being asked to deplane, became obstinate or belligerent or anything else does not matter; it never should have come to this point in the first place.
For the record, and to clarify something that virtually nobody has pointed out: this was a United Express flight, not a United Airlines flight, operated by a contractor company called Republic Airways (no relation to the original Republic Airlines, which no longer exists). That doesn’t mitigate what happened, and the flight was operated on United’s behalf, using its livery and branding, which makes United at least equally responsible.
But, it’s a factual aspect of the story that has gone unmentioned.
She is feeling a bit hacked off about her Bf’s self indulgence towards his career.
I used to feel exactly the same way, but over time, have come to realise that it is not about a short-coming in me, but rather it is just the way he is, and will always be.
This is company-assigned flying and is very different from crewmembers who are “commuting” on their own time. That’s no excuse for what happened, and in some ways it only makes things worse, by showing off some sloppy planning, but it deserves an explanation.
I was chatting to a friend earlier who is quite new to the pilot Gf thing…
I don’t know which employees — Republic crewmembers or mainline United customer service employees in the terminal — were the ones who made the call to have the passenger taken off.
Apparently, the passenger was removed to accommodate a United or United Express crewmember. To be clear, no carrier would deny boarding to a revenue passenger in order to accommodate an employee riding on his or her leisure time.
Pilots are a distinct segment of the general population.
In addition to flying skills, pilots are selected for their personalities and for a distinct “pilot persona.” These characteristics make them safer pilots. Pilots tend to be “reality based,” because by the very nature of their work they are constantly testing reality.
I don’t know any more than the average person whose been following the story or who has watched the video.
