Reply To: Is Air India Safe: Pilots Put Newspaper Over Windshield

Back to Forum


I am very surprized at VK’s comment considering he is kind of information guru for aviation! Did he take any night flight? And what the pilots are supposed to see during midflight? Also it looks like VK did not notice even BA’s cockpit. Before 9/11, one could easily get glimpse of cockpit duirng flight. I noticed pilot placed some kind of chart on the windshield during midflight. BA also has a history of flying for quite some distance with a pilot lodged on windshield and another two holding him – except during landing, surely no one was looking at anything else. Also Martyn’s link provided a good example. Air India has severe problem – all travellers accept that and still travel due to value for money and it is safe. Whereas for BA – a premium airlines, travellers suffered much more duirng various BA strikes, etc. Does that mean, we will stop flying BA?
