Default Sunwing pilot passed out in cockpit

Looks like another newhire slot just opened up...

"It had all the potential for a disaster, but I'll tell you this much -- the likelihood of a pilot on a major airline like this actually being able to take off when they're impaired like that is pretty slim, because there's a lot of checks and balances," Stacey said. "There's the other flight crew and there's gate crew and they're all about safety."

They used a lot of images of United aircraft in that video.

I'm sure fair and balanced would have done a great job.
