    The AA CEOs excuse isn’t in line with any of the reports that claimed the pilots were all calling in sick and there was a shortage of ground crew. And where are the ground crews? They all sick as well?

    This anecdote is somewhat related: when I was 13, I wrote a letter to West Point Military Academy, NY, to enquire as to the process of becoming an Air Force pilot after leaving school in Ireland; after a few months I hadn’t received a reply so I put it out of my mind. 7 months later when one of the nuns was giving the rest of the pupils their letters after lunch, I was told to go to the Principal’s office, which I did. After being told to be seated, I was subjected to many questions about my family links to the US and why the nuns didn’t know to expect mail from official US authorities etc., In the heel-of-the-hunt, the school principal produced a letter addressed to me from West Point MA with official insignia; she opened it, read it aloud and subsequently looked a bit sheepish. It was a very nice letter from admin thanking me for my enquiry, detailing what was required to become an AF pilot, with best wishes and a request to keep them informed as to my progress should I choose to pursue my AF career – with US naturalization obviously.

    When I was leaving her office she threw the letter on her desk and barked that it was the stupidest ambition she’d ever read in a pupil’s letter, to which I replied, ‘don’t read other peoples’ post then’.

    Needless to say, she and all the other nuns *really* loved me after that – my card was marked. Dammit!
