Limbaugh Talks With United Airlines Pilot: “FLYING IS A PRIVILEGE”

RUSH: We start with with William in Bozeman, Montana, a pilot with United Airlines. William, great to have you on the program, sir. Hello.

CALLER: Hey, good morning, Mr. Limbaugh. Mega airline captain dittos from God’s country. How are you doing today?

RUSH: Very, very fine. Thank you. What aircraft do you fly?

CALLER: I fly for United Express, and I fly the Embraer 170 and 175 version.

RUSH: That’s the plane involved here, isn’t it? It was a United Express flight?

CALLER: It’s the exact same thing.

RUSH: Right, okay.

CALLER: My initial thoughts on this, Mr. Limbaugh, is that people have forgotten that flying is a privilege and that with that privilege there come rules. And these are rules that are set forth by FAA, by the Transportation Security Administration, by the airlines themselves, and we have multiple venues where you can see where these rules are posted. But people choose not to do that, and then when it comes down to the point that we as crew members have to enforce these rules, we look like the bad guy.

You notice in this YouTube video, this posting, whatever it is, that they don’t show this guy being noncompliant. ‘Cause I can guarantee you half a dozen times before he was removed from the aircraft, there were crew members, there were gate agents, there were people trying to tell him respectfully, “Sir, you need to remove yourself from the aircraft.”

RUSH: Well, the impression is that when they first approached him they beat him up.

CALLER: (laughing)

RUSH: I mean, that is the impression people are left with, is he was asked to leave, he refused to, so they beat him up and then he snuck back on and then they really got mad and dragged him — (crosstalk)

CALLER: — airplane post-9/11, Mr. Limbaugh, you’re gonna get hurt. I’m sorry, there’s gonna be a plane full of people that are not gonna put up with that anymore.
