Holding in position for a Rwy 22R departure together with a Swiss A330 HB-IQH. Check out the captain of the Swiss plane. I would have loved to know what he was thinking......suggestions are welcome.

Pilot of the A330: "To think I used to fly those, how embarrassing".

Well the Swiss pilot can also be saying. Wow must be fun to fly that, I sit hear looking at lights and buttons for 7 hours to ZRH while he lands and takeoffs 8 times in 5 hours and really gets to fly.
Me I would love to fly for Cap Air and than on to the Majors!

I am sure, he reflected the times when he flew the likes by himself, earning hours to join Swiss

I think the Swiss first passengers are wondering about the cramped condition in the Cessna. But hey, it gets you somewhere good for cheap!

And to think that the A330 looks tiny compared to the A380. Imagine if the cessna was next to a whalejet!

The old joke comes to my mind: A330: Oh, look at that funny little plane. Did you build it on your own? Answer from the small plane pilot: Yes, I made it out of A330-parts and another landing like yours and I have enought for another....

Of course, I don't know what he thought.

Nice of Swissair to display its country's name in five different languages. I guess they want to make sure people know what the airline is. :-)

Captain: "I'm doing 1 landing in a week, he's going to do 7 landings in a day. That's real fun flying!"
By the way, Swiss puts the name in 5 different languages because, apart from English, they are all official languages in Switzerland. They are German, French, Italian and Romansh.

I think it is more about what the pax on the 402C must be saying..."Where's my drink and why doesn't my seat recline?!"
