THROW THE BOOK AT THEM ...

As a frequent flyer who has flown for years on business and, yes, including on America West, what these two pilots did and what they've now been convicted of, as reported by the Associated Press (AP), is as outrageous, as it is unconscionable.

I hope Judge David Young gives each of these idiots the maximum allowable sentence under the law and not one iota of leniency.

Imagine two commercial airline pilots closing out a $122 bar tab just six hours before commanding an aircraft with 124 passengers and 3 flight attendants onboard. There might easily have been a horrific accident and involving other aircraft no less!

I feel like writing more, but discretion is intervening.
