My lovely “evil” twin sis Melisa from Suburban Scrawl thought this story would be a contender for the “Eejit of the Week” award and boy was she right. Thank you Melisa.
Life as a pilot must be hard. I mean seriously hard. All that flying through different time zones, the jetlag and all that hard partying with dozens of cute flight attendants…Yes that can really take you out. So much so that you gotta snooze on the job.
Too bad that your job involves flying an enormous chunk of metal worth several millions and a few hundred people whose lives depend on you.
I am just saying because apparently the guys from an Air India flight en route to Mumbai felt it was ok to take a nap thereby overshooting their destination by several miles before being woken up by Air Traffic Control.
SNOOZE CONTROL TO MAJOR TOM. WTF?
I have never been afraid of flying but heck I sure am not looking forward to our flight to Thailand in September now. I don’t want to wake up in Laos or Cambodia or Vietnam. Not that these countries wouldn’t be perfectly great destinations it is just that we really had set our minds on going to Thailand!
Please vote for last weeks “Eejit of the Week” in the poll underneath the “About” section. Should you happen to come across a really moronic story you think would be a contender for the award please don’t hesitate to send me an email or leave me a comment.
