    To me it seems like it's a matter of technicality and the pilot did the right thing. It was lose his job or lose passengers. Personally I would have probably done the same thing if I were in his shoes.

    Would have been funnier if after he said that we was not qualified to land the plane, he parachuted out.

    Exactly what I was going to say.

    He could have asked if anyone on the plane was certified.

    Had he gone ahead and landed, but crash landed, his career would have been over, the Airline's Insurance would be paying out Millions for years to come.
    No, he did exactly the correct thing.

    How hard is it to push the big button labeled "Land Plane"?
