sithon: shoulda called Jimmy Johns.
Relatively Obscure: At least it wasn't lemon soaked paper napkins.
JohnAnnArbor: What, the stewardesses couldn't whip something up?
Pointy Tail of Satan: A) the pilot didnt order from a five star hotel; PIA didB) it's a long flight, and if the pilot had not had any food for some extended period beforehand, he was right to do this
TuteTibiImperes: Pointy Tail of Satan: A) the pilot didnt order from a five star hotel; PIA didB) it's a long flight, and if the pilot had not had any food for some extended period beforehand, he was right to do thisThe pilot could have:1. Packed his own lunch2. Eaten the nuts, chips, or biscuits3. Sent one of the stewardesses in to grab him something from one of the airport restaurants
king of vegas: I'm trying to figure out if this is a sandwich for the pilot or sandwiches for the entire plane full of people. The article doesn't make it clear as far as I can tell. If it's for all the passengers, it might be a more reasonable thing to do. If it's just for him then that's just weird.
Ni: I'd prefer my pilot fed and happy, thank you very much. That's a long-ass flight.But after reading the article, this guy was an asshat. I can't believe no airport cafes could make a sandwich.
KradDrol: This is the original story from the Pakistani paper:http://www.nation.com.pk/national/15-Dec-2013/pilot-s-love-for-sandw ic hes-delays-flightApparently there was lunch served, but the route used to serve sandwiches as an in-between meal instead of the peanuts/chips/biscuits. To cut costs, the airline cut out the sandwichesSo the pilot held up the flight so that the passengers could get sandwiches again. That makes more sense.
Curious: and if he has some medical condition where he has to eat every so often or his system crashes he shouldn't be flying.
