Another over-sensationalized story from the Daily Mail

Yea, this wasn't exactly a remake of 'Airport 75', as the reporter makes it out to be.

I bet when the pilot was incapacitated the engines sputtered and made a high pitch whiney noise as the planes noise lurched towards the ground :p

"Stewardess"? Did this happen in 1965?

Does anyone proof these articles....

big, no make that huge, difference between a 747 and 737. And did he lay in the Galley area or did he go back to the cockpit where the Dr. decided he needed additional health issues addressed.

As a 38year Purser I would have "bravely" asked the Captain.... "how many words per minute do you fly?".... Very few jets CAN'T land by instruction. Since 1969 no one in the U.S. has been called a 'stewardess'---- BUT it's a European thing so don't knock it.
We prefer "International Fan Jet Sky Goddess, Sex Symbol of the Sky" LOL

I assume the text of the article was incorrect when it referred to the plane as a "747-800".

And I thought the correct term is "flight attendant ". Maybe not in the U.K.

Before Political Correctness, they were called Stewardess. They also had to be pretty girls.

"Ladies and gentleman, this is your stewardess speaking. We regret any inconvenience the sudden cabin movement might have caused. This is due to periodic air pockets we encountered. There's no reason to become alarmed and we hope you enjoy the rest of your flight. By the way, is there anyone on board who knows how to fly a plane?"

If the co-pilot was incapacitated, why didn't the pilot declare an emergency and land at the nearest, probably French, airport? Why did he continue on to Mallorca? What is "brave" about sitting in the cockpit and reading off a checklist?

The Aviation Herald (sorry, I don't have the link handy) had a report on this. Apparently, they were passing top of descent, the co-pilot was being tended to by a paramedic, so the pilot decided to continue to destination. Newsworthy, but not a major incident.

What was the Captain doing
Delegating his duties...

Where does it say that in the story? The PF landed the plane with the assistance of a member of the crew who probably read off the checklist and other non-technical duties. This would not be "delegating his duties". It's standard procedure.
