This kids, is a prime example of how to make your day go from bad to terrible. A United pilot boarded a plane in Austin bound for San Francisco in street clothes,not her uniform. “She shows up dressed like a civilian and asks to us to take a vote to see whether she should change into her uniform or fly as is,” said a passenger. Then she “asked if we were ok with her flying like that… then says “sorry I’m going through a divorce.”” And of course the next course of action is to go on a political rant. The Pilot then used the plane’s overhead PA system to rant about President Trump and Hillary Clinton — calling them both “a–holes” and then ranting about her divorce. That’s when passengers began tweeting to United to get a new pilot. Another passenger said “Being a pilot is a tough & stressful job. This particular pilot did not seem emotionally equipped to do that job today. I hope that she gets the help she probably needs.”
No word on if United gave out travel vouchers compensating the passengers that were delayed or if they just threw in some complimentary stale peanuts.
