Passenger Removed for Pilot-Sobriety Joke

from the don’t-mess-with-the-airlines dept.

Janus brought this one to my attention: A story about a woman passenger who was removed from an America West flight after she jokingly questioned whether the pilots had been checked for drunkenness. “We take any comment regarding safety seriously,” explained America West spokesperson Patty Nowack. “Also, as I think everyone is well aware by now, our air crews, just like those of other airlines, are pretty much ready to snap at any moment. Humor has no place in that environment.”
