Default United Captain removed from flight after boarding in civvies strange PA rant

An unusual incident. While she was undoubtedly unfit to fly that day, I am quite sad to see incidents like this happen.

Like I told SQ228 (http://www.sqtalk.com/forum/showpost...1&postcount=17), it's United!

I mean it's a huge airline and it's in the US of A ... one has to expect some crazies every now and then. Even SQT have our fair share.

And the flight was heading to SFO... could be a link there...

Watched the video- a $50 voucher??? "Yeah, hi, we let someone mentally disturbed and in plain clothes into the cockpit of your plane, but don't worry, here's a $50 voucher! You're safe now! Sorry for two hours of chaos. Use it to get a small discount on the next flight you choose to fly with us."

Can *A please find a new US affiliate?

If you ask me, since Jan 20, Washington DC holds the title as the centre of crazies.

Yup, now that they are bought Virgin America, AS should be the preferred candidate!

Good old UA, you never have a shortage of unusual scenarios.

That would be an ideal move, but unfortunately it is wishful thinking, give that *A has for years had a quantity-over-quality approach in getting as many new airlines into the alliance as possible. UA being like this probably doesn't make a difference to them.

I was a bit saddened to hear this, as VX is one of my favourite US airlines. I liked that they have had codeshare agreement with SQ.

My reference was to the ghost of 3D maps...

But yeah, I think there's a recently resigned military guy in Washington that I reckon would love a good 3D map. Let's you see who's hiding around corners!
