Stop Bickering or, So Help Me, I Will Stop This Plane… [Video]
There are some naughty words in here, but basically, the pilot is my common sense hero for the month!
The captain on a United flight from San Francisco to Puerto Vallarta Friday morning laid down the law over the intercom with an announcement after a reportedly racially charged scuffle between two passengers.
So, they get into it and the pilot does something I absolutely love... something oddly reminiscent of my long family car trips.
“If there’s anyone that has a problem with this, that needs to vent or rant or rave — there’s another flight tomorrow,” said the captain. “You’re not going to be on this one. I hope that’s clear.”
So, basically, don't make me stop this plane!
My parents never followed through on the threat, and this pilot didn't need to. After the arguers were separated, no more trouble. And lots of applause.
