I know the pilot whose name you've already heard (along with First Officer Jeffrey Skiles, whose name you haven't) did a fantastic job getting this plane down in one piece and with no fatalities, but I also wanna say out loud that the three reasons that you have all these front page pictures of people standing on the wings of a floating plane are Doreen Welsh, Donna Dent, and Sheila Dail, the flight attendants on duty. The reason I want to say this is that no one else in the media did.

If you roll my blog back to the very first interaction I had with an FA, at the very day I worked for a company that had FAs, you'll see that when I mistook her for a pilot she said she was "just an FA." And I told her never to say that, because I knew how important her job was in getting butts out of airplanes in an emergency.

And twenty minutes later we had an RTO with an engine fire and she was doing just that.

And how well do you think that pilot whose name we all know could have ditched that airplane if no one had served him any coffee?

I hope it's not insulting to the flight attendants to mention that they aren't fresh out of school. It was a little bit of vindication for those of us with some years under our belt.

The media didn't say much about the other pilot either. There's a reason he's called the "pilot not flying" and not just the "guy sitting there looking photogenic." When we finally get to hear the CVR I know we'll hear a crew at work the flight, not just one guy.

But you can understand how we passengers fit in difficult to fit these sorts of concepts into our minds.

FA: Hi, my name is Phil, and I'll be your server tonight! Also, should this aircraft be about to explode in a big ball of flame, I'll make sure you're outside safely before that happens. Not to mention providing first aid or any other assistance you may need.

Me: don't mind if I tip you in advance, do you?
