Airline Pilot's Seeing Eye Dog

Air travel is a land of storytelling. As soon as you mention your recent, or yet to come airline trip, the stories begin. Everyone has a funny pilot story, a funny airline story, or something to share about their air travel experiences. How would you react to the following situation?


 


Blind Pilot?


I was flying from San Francisco to San Diego. By the time we took off, there had been a 45-minute delay and everybody on board was ticked.

Unexpectedly, we stopped in Sacramento on the way. The flight attendant explained that there would be another 45-minute delay, and if we wanted to get off the aircraft, we would re-board in 30 minutes.


Everybody got off the plane except one gentleman who was blind. I noticed him as I walked by and could tell he had flown before because his Seeing Eye dog lay quietly underneath the seats in front of him throughout the entire flight. I could also tell he had flown this very flight before because the pilot approached him and, calling him by name, said:

"Keith, we're in Sacramento for almost an hour. Would you like to get off and stretch your legs?"

Keith replied, "No thanks, but maybe my dog Butch would like to stretch his legs."

All the people in the gate area came to a completely quiet standstill when they looked up and saw the pilot walk off the plane with the Seeing Eye dog!


. . . . . . . The pilot was even wearing sunglasses.

. . . . . . . People scattered.

. . . . . . . They tried to change planes AND airlines!
