YOU DONT SHUT THE !@*% UP
I WILL TAKE THIS AIRPLANE BACK TO
THE GATE OR
SO HELP ME
Unless my memory is failing me, something pretty close to this just happened out west somewhere within the last 4-6 months. As I heard the story, the F/O and PIC had been at it all day, and after they pushed back and were taxiing out, the PIC said something to the F/O that was essentially the "straw that broke the camel's back" and the F/O insisted that they come back to the gate so he could get off the aircraft.
(Personally, I have to agree with him. Not taking either his side or the PIC's side, but if their interface was that bad while they were still on the ground, putitng the aircraft in the air would not have been a sound move, and I commend the F/O for having the good sense to pull the plug...)
I can't recall who the airline was for sure (I think I know), but I do know it wasn't mine, thankfully....
