    American Airlines scrambling to fill cockpits after computer glitch allowed all pilots to book time off between Dec. 17-31. Offering extra pay; 15,000 flights affected - CBC





    If you're flying this Holiday by AA, I would start looking for another airlines.

    I've got a single engine pilots license, but have some stick time in an 8 engined B-52. Can I help out and get the extra pay?

    Hell, at this point in time, they would likely accept a simple crop duster pilot. LOL

    Who in their right mind wouldn't take time off during the Christmas/New Years madness. Especially in the travel industry if given.

    Good luck trying to get those pilots to agree to return. HAHAHA

    don't sell crop dusters short. They are some of the most skilled pilots out there.

    Any pilot can take off, fly up high, straight and level and land. Crop dusters fly feet off the ground, often under power lines and sometimes at night and take off and land on narrow country roads....

    That all might be true.

    But a Cessna 188 does not fly the same as a Boeing 737.
