"I am resigning from my job. Do not fly with this plane. It is not safe. Do not fly with Onur Air."

A jet carrying 180 British tourists was grounded when its pilot announced: "Do not fly with this plane, it is not safe."

The holidaymakers were about to take off back to Bristol Airport from Antalya, Turkey, when a strange sound came from the Airbus A321's engines.

Then the captain announced: "I am resigning from my job. Do not fly with this plane. It is not safe. Do not fly with Onur Air."

The unnamed pilot walked off the aircraft, leaving the passengers in 38C heat without air conditioning.

They were eventually told to leave the aircraft, retrieve their luggage and go back to the terminal, where an alternative flight was arranged. Passenger Jade Barrett, said: "The pilot made his announcement and then walked off the plane. Some people started laughing nervously but others were crying and almost screaming.

"Everyone was terrified and we did not know what was happening but in the end they told us to get off the plane."

Up to 20 of the passengers were so scared they refused to board the replacement and tried to find other flights home.

A spokesman for Goldtrail, the company which chartered last week's flight, said: "The employee in question was serving his notice. There was a problem between him and the airline and he turned it into a bigger problem."

I hope that this chopf#ck pilot is blacklisted--so he can't get another flying job anywhere.

He could have given notice much earlier--and discreetly, rather than so publicly.

total agreement on that brother sriniv...a 1st class chopf##k indeed

Maybe the pilot was legitimately concerned about the airline's maintenance and safety practices. If I was flying planes everyday for an airline and there were recurring mechanical troubles I can imagine getting quite pissed off both for my safety and that of my passengers.

IF that is why he did what he did, then I applaud him for it. If not, then maybe he's just a #######. :blink:

Would be refreshing if true--as I've been on more than one flight where the pilot tried to "reassure" when something was SERIOUSLY wrong (aircraft not even necessarily in flightworthy condition).

IF that is why he did what he did, then I applaud him for it. If not, then maybe he's just a #######. :blink:

:sabaidee:

Till further info, I'll stick with him being a chopf#ck.

I've been on a few planes when the pilot has announced it's not going anywhere because of safety problems, and we've had to taxi back to the gate. I've always been thankful they have done so despite it being a pain in the #######.

Evidentally last year that airline was actually banned from several airports.

The airline has been suspended from taking off and landing by four European countries for alleged safety breaches.
- News Article

A different news report of the pilot story :

The captain informed the passengers of his decision in a rather spectacular fashion -- as he walked into the cabin just before the plane was set to leave the gate, said the aircraft was unsafe, and that he wouldn't fly on it as pilot or passenger... and then strode from the plane, and presumably his job.

...

"The plane's engines seemed to be making a horrendous noise before it took off and then the captain came out and announced he was resigning," said passenger Andy Burridge.

Still inconclusive, but interesting...

At least he didn't resign via parachute in-flight.

In that case, he would have been a DEMONIC-level chopf#ck!

Only inconclusive as to whether he did it out of conscience; the evidence shows conclusive evidence that the airline is a cheap@$$ fleabag (like Tower Air, which killed about 250 US troops returning home by failing to de-ice at Gander).
