|Quoting PA727 (Thread starter):|
Was scheduled to fly AA668 (AstroJet retro paint) on Sunday, March 4 from LAS to DFW. After boarding and being on the plane for approximately 45 minutes, the FA came on the PA to announce the captain had fallen ill and was seeking medical treatment. After a few more minutes, it was announced that there was a "medical emergency" and that the captain had been taken by EMS.
We were taken off the aircraft, and after a two hour delay, the flight departed for DFW with a replacement pilot. As I would have missed my connection, I elected to spend another night in Vegas as opposed to DFW, and I would like to compliment AA ground staff on how they took care of passengers and made the re-booking process as painless as possible, given the circumstances.
Most importantly, I was hoping someone might have an update on the pilot's condition. I hope it wasn't too serious and that he is well.
