Sick pilots cleared for flying


   How would you like to fly on an airline where the pilots say the following:

   Whether a pilot is sick or tired, airline managers "will harass you until you give up and
fly."

   "It was a battle calling in fatigued. They would do anything they could to talk you out of
it. They just want to get the plane moving."

   "The chief pilot called and started giving me a hard time. And I was just coming out of
general anesthesia."

   That's what pilots and former pilots at Colgan Air, which operated the doomed Continental
Connection Flight 3407 that crashed in Charence in February, have to say.

   So again: How would you like to fly on an airline where the pilots say such things?
