Wheels Up! Podcast: A passenger lands a plane when the pilot passes out
Wheels Up is my podcast that goes behind the headlines of some of the offbeat stories coming from the airlines and the people who work there, with help from iHeart Airline Expert and former airline executive Jay Ratliff. Among the stories in this installment: when a pilot passes out on a Cessna plane, a brave and amazingly calm passenger gets help from the air traffic controller to safely land the plane.
We also discuss:
--no charges for Mike Tyson when he punched out an annoying passenger on a recent flight
--should the retirement age of pilots of raised with a current pilot shortage?
--as air fares increase, airlines find that the advance bookings are decreasing
--why Virgin Airlines had a flight return to the airport because a pilot wasn't qualified
Settle back and enjoy..
