#1 OK, so I can understand about the re-screening ( but even that seems a stretch) but why a drug dog for the PAX bags when it was Capt Kirk that went Gonzo???
And what sort of protocol is there that lets some guy who says he is an off duty pilot jump in the seat? that seems like a ready made take over. unless some of the flight crew personnaly knew this guy, this also seems a bit strange.
Guy in pilot costume: Here, Miss, let me fly this thing since you seem to be short a pilot.
Miss: Are you a pilot?
Guy: No, but I stayed at a Holiday Inn Express once.....
