Well, that's certainly one ex-pilot now. I don't blame the pax for deboarding the aircraft. I sure wouldn't want to trust my life to anyone that erratic!

In any population you have a mix of everything.  Of the tens of thousands of pilots you can guarantee a small percentage are depressed, suicidal, on drugs, alcoholics, have a gambling problem, etc.  You just have to hope they are stable on the day you are flying.


I should add these are a very small minority of the pros flying us all around every day.

I guess everyone has a breaking point, including aviation professionals. This is pure conjecture of course, but would she have been in a fit state of mind to recognise the onset of deteriorating mental health? Self-critical analysis to declare herself not fit to fly?

 

Or did she see it as a way to get sacked?

 

Who knows? None of us yet at any rate.

You know...you do bring up a good question....could she have intentionally done this, to, as you say, get sacked....lose her high income..(divorce proceedings...she probably makes more than her husband?!!?!?), or...be in a 'demonstrative' mental state of depression that will 'impact' on her future ability to maintain a rate of income, if Spousal Support is sought by her husband!

 

Dang.....this could exactly be it...a staged way to absolutely lose her ability to pay, or trigger a much reduced judgement amount of said Support,...and garner sympathy from the family court judge....on her supposed 'mental state of being'....   Smart manipulation...proceeding her day in the Family Law courtroom....

 

This sounds more likely, than merely 'snapping'....and coming on board in her street clothes, and ranting over the P.A. to the packed passenger cabin.

 

She probably just came from her lawyer's office, with the bad news of what her Spousal Support Payment to her husband,might entail with her present Captain's salary in play..........hmmmm.....

Divorce is tough, your entire world can fall apart, she is human like anyone else

 

What happens from here is between her and her employer, I wish her all the best.
