Fort Worth, Texas - Americant Airlines spokesperson (she rides a bicycle to work) Marsheesha Aliboboosa announced today to a group of frazzled, jet lagged reporters a new travel discount program.
Pilots and their friends, up to fifty of them, fly for free anywhere.
Only catch is the pilot flying for free must fly the plane. Previous jet experience is desired but not essential. The stewardess can acquaint anyone with the controls in a few minutes.
Free aspartame beverages will be provided for the entire group, as well as free bathroom privileges and a bag of peanuts, for the group.
It seems aspartame side effects have grounded a number of the regular pilots as detailed here at this link
