Re: Delta allegedly lobbying against new FAA rest rule for cabin crew

And yet their employees are among the happiest and best compensated in the industry...weird. I'm a pilot at a major airline and I don't usually defend FAs but I will in this case....

Re: I can't be a pilot.

I am truly sorry that your life has taken an unexpected turn. I too wanted nothing more than to be a pilot. It sounds like you are going through the stages of grief which is completely normal for someone dealing with such a significant blow. Give it time. You don’t have to rush into something right ...

For your friend... Un-unflavored e-cig. Go vape in the restroom, as to not draw attention. Even the airlines are jumping on the bandwagon banning vaping these days.
