Lol. I think he needs to look in the mirror for a definition of attitude

Kinda caught me off guard. At the most extreme, He seemed bored....not angry.....weird. Pilot must have been at the end of a long day.

 

The comment also about a mistake every 2-3 minutes is also kinda scary....

Can someone clarify if there is a standard taxi route 2422 was following or were they issued a route prior?

In the above clip, Tower didn't advise a taxi route.

As far as I know tower never advises a Taxi route, its always ground.

 

Or maybe you mean "tower" in a sense for ATC Control tower ?

Angry Pilot needs an attitude adjustment.  Few minutes with my wife will do the trick.

Lol I saw this on the news at work and everybody laughed. I'm not sure why the Captain snapped the way he did but he must have had a long morning.

None taken.

 

I kinda feel like the controller sometimes.  I see someone do something wrong, point out the mistake, and then get everyone around me with pitchforks and torches (not that I don't deserve that for some of my comments, but the rest, not so much...)

Psycho needs his happy meds!  Though the ground controllers will instantly get in a similar mood if we stop on any taxiway at ORD (ie oops I missed our turn).

 

Also, seems 2422 had a ground hold.  CLT wasn't going to let them leave yet...   Maybe that was Captain Happy's last straw for the morning.

Sorry ZachLW. I missed the instruction from Ground to follow the 88 on Mike. Thanks for the response though.

Sack him I say. It may sound over the top, but that sort of unprofessional attitude in the cockpit can lead to disaster. Captain angry should take emotion out of the equation.

ATC do a fantastic job, in a high pressure environment. captain poo face should remember that and be more respectful.

The thing that always gets me about stuff like this is that the captain is now somewhat of an unfortunate "celebrity" in the industry now.

 

In the opposite sense, there was Boston John ("MOCHA HaGoTDI" guy), and the poor JFK Ground controller (famous for somehow not coming completely (though close to) unhinged an a certain Air China 981.  It's amazing what sites like LiveATC can add to the industry.  I definitely see a learning experience for anyone who listens to this...particularly Captain Happy...

Human factors amongst other things need be considered before passing judgement. A fair few questions need answering... Look forward to hearing the outcome.

As far as I am concerned, beside Captain's attitude ofcourse I think ATC guy was a little bit of an A-s-s as well.

Like when the captain said he was going to mike, he replied "Oh but you said you were going to Lima" - this is like pointing out a mistake to someone despite him already made the correction and is very painful in professional environment.

 

If ATC wanted more assurance he could have asked like saying "Delta XYZ please confirm going to Mike" .

 

Everybody makes mistakes so does that particular captain but reminding someone again and again of their mistake, despite the mistake being corrected is highly unprofessional.

That was real world pilot/ATC interaction?? I thought I was listening to VATSIM or summat. That pilot just jumped on the controller from literally nowhere :huh:

The mark of a *good* professional pilot is a bit of humility. The controller may have been vague but he certainly wasn't an "@$$".  Not in the least.  As a matter of fact, it is indeed his job to point out incorrect taxi routes -- he's a ground controller after all!  It's nice to see he had the wherewithal to catch the possible deviation from instruction before it occurred.  I would have thanked him, as a matter of fact.

I was more concerned when the captain said he makes 100's of mistakes a minute??? 

I hope i never have the 'pleasure' of flying with "captain happy"

Agreed - well stated!

Praise should also go to the controller for remaining calm, and not being drawn into an immature and highly unprofessional exchange. By doing so he made the other guy look even more ridiculous.

I think the best part was the controller canning himself after the anon pilot called the nutjob captain happy. Its always cool when a guy can laugh in a less than savory situation.

I wonder if in the real world, is the pilot/controller relationship similar to doctor/nurse - as in never challenge the doctor?
