Rather than your typical “Hi, welcome aboard United Airlines Flight whatever, remember to put your oxygen mask on before assisting others” greeting, a pilot in street clothes welcomed passengers aboard Saturday with a rant on politics and her divorce. Just another reason why it’s always fun to fly the friendly skies!
According to CBS News, all of this occurred on United Airlines Flight 455 from Austin to San Francisco before the plane took off. (What is it about plane transit between Austin and San Francisco that makes people act wildly out of line?) CBS News reports that the pilot outburst led to a delay of about two hours, which is exactly what every airline passenger wants to happen during an already long travel day.
