    Jerk with a I-Phone gets owned by Airline Pilot.

    This is a link to a story you will love if you, like me, dislike the little I-diotphone jerks walking around thinking they are smarter than everyone else because of their cell phone.

    If you have an I-phone, I hope you are not one of the people I am talking about.

    Hahaha - Captain's announcement is great!

    "If the passenger with the IPhone would be kind enough to use it to check the weather at our alternate, calculate our fuel burn due to being rerouted around the storms, call the dispatcher to arrange our release, and then make a phone call to the nearest Air Traffic Control center to arrange our timely departure amongst the other aircraft carrying passengers with IPhones, then we will be more than happy to depart. Please ring your call button to advise the Flight Attendant and your fellow passengers when you deem it ready and responsible for this multi-million dollar aircraft and its passengers to safely leave."

    I actually wasted time reading all the responses on the page. I had to laugh at all the airline captains who try to make the job sound like brain surgery.

    Sounds like the i-diot phone user stayed at Holiday Inn Express, last night.

    Flying a plane that allows one to sleep certainly may not be. Yet, dealing with an increasingly brain-dead public has become so.

    Didn't Iphone folks bring this on themselves by running a TV ad in which an airline pilot supposedly used the Iphone to bring an end to a 3 + hour delay?

    Yes, they most certainly did. It's amazing they think their $800 phone knows more than the millions of dollars of air navigation equipment. I-diotphone indeed.

    You know it is I Phones fault, they have a TV ad with a "Pilot" that tells how he was delayed and looked at the weather radar on his I Phone and they let him take off. So some monkey tried the same trick, but oops reality hit him in the face.

    I-phones are cool... if you have that sort of money to blow. I'd rather get a good deal on 2 guns than 1 iphone. Or 1 1911, or like 10,000 rounds of ammo, or... well you get the idea.

    ya know, I am an aircraft mechanic who occasionally gets to install and play with avionics, and if you think for one second that any cell phone internet weather program is even half as good as the Avionics that commercial aircraft and air traffic controllers use......you deserve an I-diot Phone. the nerve of some people, just makes ya laugh. **Rant OFF**

    My iPhone is good, but not THAT good.

    If you ask JD just how much that little devise has been incorporated into our lives he'd have to laugh.

    At least it allows him to surf DC.com while waiting for me outside of the salon.

    Yeah, the guy's an idiot. I'd be wasting my time playing bejeweled or watching some episodes of "HOUSE" or listening to music and leave the weather up to God and the pilots.

    Tell that to the Army O-6 we had who contacted the DZ on his crackberry during an NVG personnel airdrop. There was a cloud deck covering the entire approach and escape to the drop zone. In fact, the only hole in the deck was directly above the DZ, and it was maybe a couple hundred yard across. His guys on the ground were more than happy to tell him they could see the stars above them. He then appropriated a headset and forcibly removed the comm cord from one of our loadmasters. At this point, he began to lambast us, wondering why the we were telling him we couldn't get into the drop zone due to weather.

    Needless to say, I see the aircrews point. (And that's not the only story I can tell like that.) However, my earlier comment was directed at the pilots on that blog saying, basically, "You don't know how hard my job is." It comes across (to me) as whining. I've seen people do hard work, and I don't think flying high-level from A to B in a permissive environment with first-class support from ATC and dispatch (not to mention avionics that were made in the past 10 years) generally fits into that category, especially in a domestic (i.e. non-international) setting. Granted, it may get sporty from time to time, but the comments seem a little dramatic to me.

    I completely understand the point you were trying to make, for some unknown reason, pilots make it seem like it SO hard to control an aircraft, but at the same time, when the pilot climbs aboard a commercial airline, he take most of the responsibility for the entire crew and passenger compliment, therefor its his way or the highway, hence the superiority complex,with that being said, Iphone brought this upon themselves and should be mad to think their commercial through BEFORE airing them.

    If you have never controlled an aircraft landing in a gusting 30 knot crosswinds, faced rain that pummelled the aircraft, encountered turbulence that knocks the fillings out of your teeth, or seen St. Elmo's skittering across your windscreen, landing in snow covered runways, landing with visibility 1800 feet while moving at 200 feet per second, losing one of two engines right after takeoff, or having to divert to an unknown airport because wanna-be pilots...because they learned how flying Microsoft...then, like brain surgeons...you can not possibly understand.
