Alcoholism is a disease! By removing the pilot from the plane they exposed his disease to the world...which is racist! This has got to stop! The Drunken Pilots Union will not let this happen again.

Why. It’s not like he does anything other than sit there anyway.

If the pilot was non-white, then removing him was racist.

2 things, first just remove him from the flight, second arresting him ain't worth nothing if the plane hadn't even left the gate. Plus there is always a co pilot for just these cases. Morons.

FAA doesn’t mess around with flight safety, operating an aircraft while intoxicated is indeed a felony. When you’re responsible for every soul aboard you damned well come onboard sober.

I had a roommate that was a pilot. He was paid thousands and thousands of euros a month to push buttons, launch auto pilot and SLEEP in the cock pit! The planes land themselves! He loved his alcohol too! So much so that he CALCULATED how much he could drink between shifts... everyone needs to know that their pilot is an alcoholic - especially the long haul ones. They use it as a sleeping aid and a way to get girls into their hotel room. It’s a very seedy profession. You heard it here first!

Somehow and someway this has something to do with Trump being a white racist bigot and Russian spy.
