American Pilot suspended for taxiing too slow on purpose . .


#1

A management pilot at American Airlines was taxiing his airplane behind that of a pilot at Dallas/Fort Worth International Airport and decided the Los Angeles-based pilot was deliberately taxiing too slow.

As a result, the pilot in front has been suspended 15 days.

Wow, that is really dumb. Somebody has power and likes to remind people of his power.

:open_mouth: I hope that guy gets his $ back some day.

As for Captain Osborne we would imagine his “do not pair with” list is growing by the minute in DFW.
