RE: This Flight Crew Was Simply Amazing

Very touching story. Wish there are more flight crews like yours. And a salute to the passengers. This is the way flying ought to be. If people are always on their best behaviors, flying would be much more pleasant.

Just curious if this aircraft can be used on ultra short haul flights lasting 15-20 minutes? If so, perhaps it has a good chance with HA in the future for inter island flights when it is time for the 717s to retire.
