On this topic DavidFordon10 – how does the airline react when you identified yourself being a Dr. Did they ask for proof – and what about your professional indemnity? Are you covered by the airline or are you treating patients at your risk.

I have known Dr’s not to ID themselves, for many reasons including the airline not supporting their actions in the way the patient is being treated.

I also wonder if a Dr has suggested to the pilot that a diversion is necerssary and the pilot has refused.
