Pilot’s Expletives Cancel Flight
This is a new one. On Friday, the Captain of Northwest Flight 1190 from Las Vegas to Detroit stepped onto the plane talking into his cellphone and cursing loudly. Some passengers complained to him and asked him to stop. His response was to curse at them.
Police and the FAA were notified, and the pilot was removed from the flight. Northwest Airlines canceled the flight and apologized to its customers. It is unclear at this point if he was intoxicated, or if charges will be pressed.
