Flying Off the Handle

Headline: Flight canceled after pilot's foul language

SAN FRANCISCO (Reuters) - Northwest Airlines canceled a flight set to leave from Las Vegas to Detroit after the captain cursed on a cell phone in a bathroom, then swore at one of the 180 passengers on the plane, officials said on Saturday.

Damn. That's frickin' unbelievable. It's a good thing I'm not a pilot. I mean, shit, I wouldn't make it to the taxiway if that's the case.

What the hell do those people want from him? He must be cursing up a storm now that he's been grounded. Grounded. A grown man.

He probably also lost his TV and phone privileges, as well. If so, that would be a bunch of bullshit.

Especially if you consider how much cursing was going on in the cabin after the passengers found out their flight was cancelled.

i think that is the dumbest thing i've ever heard. i'm pretty sure i've had more than a few flight attendants curse me out and they didn't get grounded.

If you flew for Northwestern, you'd do a lot of swearing too. Lord knows I've sworn at that airline often enough.

Wonder of the passengers were angrier at the cancellation than at being cursed at. I bet they were swearing after the grounding.
