    Southwest Airlines was once well known for hiring only female flight attendants and dressing them in hot pants. At least one of its pilots apparently dislikes that it's not like that anymore.

    "Eleven f***ing over-the-top f***ing a** f***ing homosexuals and a granny. Eleven! I mean, think of the odds of that," the unidentified pilot said during a March flight.

    He was talking to his co-pilot after take off from Houston about his attempts at having a nightlife with Southwest Airlines crew members laying over in Chicago, a city he called "party land."......The pilot labeled his Chicago-based flight crew as a "continuous stream of gays and grannies and grandes."


    What the pilot didn't apparently know what that everything he was saying was being transmitted over an open microphone on the air traffic control frequency. Controllers and pilots heard it all and tried several times to curb the dialogue.

    "OK, someone has a stuck mic and telling us about all their endeavors and we don't need to hear that," a controller is heard saying.......The airline suspended the pilot without pay, forced him to take sensitivity training and the put him back in the cockpit.

    they were talking about this on WLS on Roe and Roper, they are allowed to talk after the plane reaches 10,000 ft, apparently this guy didn't wait that long....moron...

    That man will never get a hot cup of coffee again, unless it's in his lap.

    When I first heard this on the news, I thought that he meant spanish-speaking people when he said "Grandes", and wondered what was so offensive about the term. "Grande", "grand".

    It was the second time I caught the story that someone said he meant overweight people by the term.

    Clearly this pilot and Officer Mario Masic (Rochester jackass) need to find new occupations.

    Look. If the pilot did his job and the plane didn't crash, what else really matters.

    When I have to fly, I want the best pilots, not necessarily the most politically correct. Maybe that's just me?

    As I said, his cabin crew is probably going to dump a few cups of scalding coffee in his lap, but otherwise, he's broken no laws that I know of.

    This isn't a case of PC police coming down on someone for saying something out of sync with the times. This is a case of gross disrespect for his fellow employees and bringing shame on his airline. Employees with much higher positions have been fired for less.

    I think you're making more out of it than is there.
    The difference between pigs and people is that when they tell you you're cured it isn't a good thing.

    Same here. Plus, he did not say anything that these perverted queers do not say among themselves. If he had inserted Christians rather than gays, it would have been blown off.
