We fly a lot in this business— a lot— and so this article probably won’t help: Reader’s Digest recently launched a new series entitled “13 Things Experts Won’t Tell You”. This month’s feature saw airline pilots reveal all. The magazine’s research suggested that some pilots feel under pressure to fly with less fuel than crew are “comfortable” with; that you’re unlikely to receive much warning if something goes awry in the sky; and that airlines may overestimate flight times to improve punctuality. Some of the trickiest US airports to land at were also revealed. Now, go out there and enjoy your flight.
