Joe Montana was on JFK-SFO in 2A this past Monday. Very pleasant and signed autographs for the pilots.

On my MOB-MEM flight yesterday some of the female pax were all atwitter because one of the cockpit guys had been on some tv reality show. Said his name was Jake and he was on either the bachelor or bachelorette show.

If it was Jake Pavelka, he's the most recent bachelor.. And was on Dancing with the Stars.. And yes he's a pilot.

Hopefully you won't need the seat cushion for flotation or the life vest, but if you do you have someone who should be a real expert on their use.

Mr Lowcarbonfoitprint himself commandeered the jet. Apparently it made a fueling stop in Helsinki -- which earned him title of "real man" from Putin for his hardship.

Article claims an "unplanned" refueling stop because of headwinds. Who runs into headwinds eastbound? More like -- planned for the range of jet that was avail.
