Wow, Air Canada Pilot Goes Berserk

And a flight attendant had to help land the plane. Crazy. Glad everyone was ok. It’s strange that one person can’t land a plane by themselves. I would have thought they could have.

Ode To Air Canada's Ass

I hate Air Canada, really I do. They have screwed me over so many times and are at least partially responsible for how much I hate flying these days. The last time they gave it to me was last year coming back from Boston. I arrived 90 minutes before my flight and was told that due to weather they were going to delay us a while in the airport.

Of fields and sunshine. But it took that from us. Yes, took it from us they did, my precious. Upon arriving in Toronto, one of its minions came forth, only to announce that our flight home, the last flight of the evening back to the […]
