Does this mean we"re gonna be late? I don"t think I"m gonna be legal after flying 125 continuous hours!Boy I sure need a nap. Maybe those Delta guys that overflew MSP could give me some pointers. Any suggestions?

Don't forget about the two "GO" idiots who fell asleep and overflew their destination. Mesa pushes their crews way too hard. Ease off J.O.!

I remember delaying a flight for a tire change and the passengers were pissed because the FO spotted the bad tire on his pre-departure walk around. I've heard pax saying oh that's BS! Now, they see what happens when balding tires are deferred.
