    Wow. It's really bad when the passengers have to restrain the pilot.

    I really LIKE Jet Blue, too. They're going to have a ton of civil suits on their hands, though.

    It blows my mind how some people "snap."

    Thus the term "snap". I hope he gets the help that he needs. Be very proactive in managing your personal baggage and keep a safe speed well below mental VNE.

    I'm sort of iffy on the whole "snap" thing. Never done it, don't know, but if my shit was in the street, I'd hope I'd know it in the "I feel like Rosie O'Donnell's ass" phase and ask for a few days off before I entered "a day in the life of Dennis Hopper" phase.

    So, looks like a few guys will be moving up on the seniority list, no?

    "Mutiny! It's mutiny I tell you! Damn FO just won't wait until his seniority gives him a Captain seat. F'ing mutineer wants mine!"

    For some reason, when I heard about this incident, this was all I could picture:

    He probably just snapped after being overruled for the Nth time by Erect-A-Plane's computer system. The probable sin was likely trying to fly the plane. Can't we somehow sue Airpus here?

    Rumors abound about meds and the lack thereof for this pilot - which can really make a person "snap."
