was flown by a good friend of mine. He was in the right seat, but still was one of the two flying it.


If God is your co-pilot then change seats

They have the worst planes in the air. He’s a hero for just getting the thing up and back down again.

Steez. Spirit has a young fleet of Airbus's. I guess you're saying Airbus is a bad aircraft?

I’m saying they are the stripped down, cheap seats, no room having version of a real aircraft.

Pretty much ANYTHING with bus in the name is a POS.

Probably more low hour pilots than some of the other carriers, rather than garbage aircraft.

One of the passengers was probably smoking crack and the pipe got away from him.

Had a friend that flew commercial aircraft for American and always referred to them as Scarebus!

Yep, there are a lot of careless crack smokers out there today. I hope investigators track that angle.
