JetBlue Pilot’s Meltdown Is Nothing New

JetBlue Pilot’s Meltdown Is Nothing New, What is it about airplanes that make some people take a trip to crazy town? First, it was the celebrity meltdown of Alec Baldwin refusing to turn off “Words With Friends” before a cross-country trip. Now, we are witnessing those who work for airlines going AWOL at work.

The most recent incident involved a Las Vegas-bound JetBlue flight from New York City forced to make an emergency landing after the captain exhibited erratic behavior. Captain Clayton Osbon left the cckpit and was subsequently locked out by his co-pilot. Witnesses heard him ranting about Israel and Iraq, and he was restrained by passengers and crew.

The captain has been suspended, after what CEO Dave Barger described a “medical situation”; that turned into a security issue. An off-duty pilot took over the captain’s duties. The flight had 135 passengers aboard, many who were coincidentally attending a security conference.
