Morale speed!!

How about they're violating their oceanic clearance by not flying the cleared mach number.....it ain't optional.

Had Purser a once that didn't want to serve a what I think was a NetJet
guy. Pretty funny really as he had boarded in uniform but had changed to something more comfortable for a North Atlantic flight. He was up front too. Upsetting for me as I had to actually make a Captain like decision .

Oh no not the environment.

Saving 15 mins is worth it.

Flying is inherently bad for the environment, as is pretty much everything humans do. Trying to consume less and minimize my impact on the environment makes me a “doosh”?

Alrighty, the 100% hit rate on someone who writes it "doosh" actually being one themselves, remains untarnished.

Flying is bad for the environment, and flying inefficiently is even worse.
