For those who enjoy that work.... More power to you!

I love to fly! But, "commercial" passenger, I detest.

I was in the first flight to depart Austin when the 9-11 grounding was lifted. I wasn't scared...but the crew was. By the time they finished the first service I had them lead us in "God Bless America!" Everyone sang. It was one of those "moments"... We were not to be victims...

God bless America!
Loved this post. I was on four planes the first day air traffic was permitted after 911. First was out of PIT - fell asleep as usual before takeoff, 6:00 AM departure. Interesting in that there was hardly any conversation on the plane - crew was VERY professional and scared of everyone. Two Air Marshall's on board (I was and am good friends with one).

To the original post. Email scams are like the proverbial throwing S... against the wall - at some point some of it sticks. Used to be and at times still is via phone and they too work enough to make it worthwhile for the low lifers.

Not so for commercial

Only way a commercial flight crew can exceed the duty day limits is to actually be airborne when the duty time expires--on a flight that was originally scheduled within the duty day limits. Flights scheduled for more than a standard duty day have to carry extra pilots so one can snooze in flight.

Not to make too fine a point, but It takes three words for Delta Air Lines. The quickest way to get an application bounced is to try and use only two.
