Book a flight on one of their twin aisle wide body planes.  You might catch a drag race.

meh, its 1 wheel.  also i love how the passengers attributed the turbulent flight to the lost wheel.

I wouldn't doubt it. Been a long time since I've seen it, that's how I remember it.

OK, after checking the episode, you are correct. Now, you've got all the answers, why do I remember it with John Cusack?

Seriously, why do I remember it with John Cusack? Does the guy look like John Cusack? Is this like the Berenstain Bears, where I possibly came from an alternate reality?

No picture of the wheel in question?  Inquiring minds need to know if it was a bearing failure (Airbuses Fault) or the bolts came loose (Air Canada's fault).

A few hundred pounds of steel and rubber shouldn't be left laying about on the runway.
It might damage another aircraft.

Not really, Cusack has a long face and Casey is more round but both are non threatening looking white dudes with dark brown hair and boyish looks?

Mongo No.5: meh, its 1 wheel.  also i love how the passengers attributed the turbulent flight to the lost wheel.


Proofreading is important.  The way you incorrectly spelled it's, you are saying it's not a big deal because the plane lost the only wheel it has.  And that makes no sense.

Of flown Air Canada tons and never had a bad experience.  Although, West Jet flights are more pleasant.  I've flown United a few times but don't recall any issues.

It's gotta be that I transposed the guy from 3 O'clock High with John Cusack. Cusack was the 80's, the show aired in the 80's, and 3 O'clock High was an 80's movie. It's gotta be that.

What's more upsetting is that I didn't remember Kevin Freakin' Costner was in the episode.

Thanks all, for the correction. In six months, when I'm telling people again it was John Cusack in Amazing Stories, I'll try to remember this thread (I'm sure I've gone through this before, with this topic).

I would take WestJet everywhere if I had a choice.   Great and funny staff, good service, never any issues.

Air Canada is about as charming and helpful as you would expect from a quasi-Government department.  Snooty arseholes all the way down.
