Plane Crazy

‘PASSENGERS on an internal flight in Brazil are planning to sue the airline after the pilot deliberately tried to scare them on the flight from Rio de Janeiro to Vitoria.

Passenger Ari Vieira Augusto said: ‘When he announced we couldn’t land in Vitoria due to bad weather, he said he had some good news and some bad news.

‘The good news was that he had made a good take off and the bad was that no aeroplanes were being successful in landing at our destination, and he didn’t explain anything else.

‘He was crazy, irresponsible and a joker. He said we were 10,000 feet above ground, 46 celsius degrees below zero and that he wouldn’t advise anyone to get out of the aeroplane without a heavy coat.’

The Gol airlines flight was scheduled to take one hour but took more than five hours and ended up in Belo Horizonte after the pilot aborted a landing at Vitoria.’
