Aero-News Quote of the Day
"I don't think there's anyone in Russia who doesn't know
what a drunk person looks like."
Source: Katya Kushner, who was a passenger
onboard Aeroflot Flight 315 on December 28, 2008. Several
passengers complained to flight attendants after being greeted as
they came onboard by Alexander Cheplevsky, one of four pilots
scheduled for the roughly 11-hour trip. Those passengers feared the
pilot's slurred speech and garbled responses indicated that he was
drunk. Flight attendants tried to downplay those fears, but discord
quickly spread throughout the cabin, and Cheplevsky initially
resisted efforts to have him leave the cockpit and speak with
passengers. When he did emerge, his alleged bloodshot eyes and
difficulty in standing up sent passengers over the edge. After a
drama-fraught three-hour delay, the Boeing 767 finally left Moscow,
with a new flight crew onboard.
