So much for the friendly skies.
"Eleven (bleep) over the top, (bleep) homosexuals and a granny Eleven, I mean think of the odds of that."
A Southwest pilot went on an obnoxious rant about his colleagues.
"It was just a continuous stream of gays and grannys and grandes"
What he didn't know what his microphone was on -- and the hateful tirade could be heard over a Houston air traffic control line.
Air Traffic Control tried to stop him.
"Okay, whoever is, uh, transmitting, better watch what you're saying."
But, he kept going, about co-workers in Houston.
"It's all these (bleep) old dudes and grannies and maybe there's a handful of cute chicks"
Air Traffic Control warned him again his mic was on. That's when the petulant Pilot clammed up... and embarrassed other pilots took to the airwaves.
"Ah Houston... that was not us"
"They wonder why airline pilots have a bad reputation."
