I do occasionally chide them for taking 40 years to set their altimeters correctly, however.

What do you mean about taking too long to set their altimeters correctly?
I'm just curious.

Yeah, I fly for AA. I didn't realize he was being sarcastic, and wrong.

You mean you prefer QFE ops to QNH?

I do not think j1b3h0 was being sarcastic as much as humorous.
Quite a clever joke really and it demonstrates a good knowledge of the airline indusry!

and it demonstrates that i have completely lost my sense of humor.

I am off to U-Tube to see if I can find my funny bone.
Later,
7576

BTW, did anyone see the UTube where a 757 takes-off with the CA window open? Pretty interesting.

My comment had nothing to do with TWA. No employer is perfect but my point still stands. I can only speak for the 7 years that I worked at TWA. We may have had some financial trouble but never had to deal with management crap like whats going on there.

SWA Before Takeoff checklist.

Att Notification
Transponder
Packs
Bleeds
Apu
Recall

See ya.

Takes about 6 seconds to complete. Everything else is done before we start to taxi.
