It's just too busy to try and give anyone better treatment (quite apart from the fact that I don't think anyone I work with would even think of doing so).

I can't speak for pilots, but there's plenty of back-seat controlling when I fly, especially from LHR!

I’ve never met anyone who works in aviation who claims to think highly of Mr, Mascheras.
