Plane Stupid

News broke last week that a Royal Jordanian flight from Athens to Amman was captained by a female Jordanian pilot, co-pilot and an entire female crew.

It's very pleasing to see Jordanian women doing so.

What's a little irritating is that we had to break a piece of news about it as if this was some kind of a new experiment we're doing. It looks like passengers were told that the entire crew were women only after they landed in Amman. One wonders if the intent was to prevent panic in the sky from people used to seeing women locked in a kitchen washing dishes and cooking maglobah?

It looks like the reaction of the passengers was something similar to, "Despite having people from the retarded backward stupid half-brained gender fly the plane, things went OK"

Meanwhile in the US, two male pilots engaged themselves in a long debate in the sky that they missed the airport by 150 miles before they noticed that and headed back to the airport. If those pilots were women, hell would break loose and people would start demanding stripping all female pilots from their flying licence.

Here's the clip

This may sound really sexist, but RJ flight attendants and pilots are REALLY cute! Maybe the powers that be were afraid the crew would be harassed by the passengers.

LOL "It looks like the reaction of the passengers was something similar to, "Despite having people from the retarded backward stupid half-brained gender fly the plane, things went OK"

Sigh.

You try to say that a woman working at home is less than any other woman. Well, i would tell you one thing, a woman who wants to drive airplanes will not have the time to bring up good guys like you!
I'm not against a woman to be whatever she wants, this depends on her priorities, but that doesn't make her better than a woman who choose to take care of her family.
