    That might be interesting.

    They were probably on the Penthouse website.

    Why are so many wanting to give these pilots a pass when most of the same people would wanna nail others on a cross if they slacked this bad on the job? I do not get it.

    Please point out anyone who wanted to give them a pass?

    This is about the severity of the punishment.

    See I believe they were online....what I don't believe is that they were looking at a company policy.

    Stuff like "how so, they were probably on autopilot cruising at a specific altitude, and a proximity alarm would have sounded if they got 'too close' to another aircraft." in this thread? Sounds like making excuses for them to me.

    I agree. They might have mentioned it, but they merely used that as a way of turning things around on their bosses. The new policy they were referring to is probably an unpopular, cost cutting one.

    These guys getting canned is a good way for the airline to get rid of some dead wood. They can hire some younger pilots at a lower salary and also send a message at the same time, both to the public and to their employees.

    I don't know about the pilots permanently losing their licenses. I haven't decided. I lean toward suspension, based on their previous good records.

    That particular comment was about operations, not letting anyone off the hook.

    No one has made excuses and you can't point out anyone who has. No one has suggested they get off free and clear. The only difference in opinion is on the severity of the punishment.

    Making invalid assumptions based on erroneous info is not good.
