today i learned – weds 27th mar 2019

this is one of those facts that makes totally sense … but you’ve probably never thought about

#tdil that on most major airlines, the pilot and copilot aren’t allowed to eat the same food ✈️

wondering why? well, have you ever seen the classic comedy film – airplane? if you haven’t, then you need to … it’s ruddy excellent 😬.

anyway, in the film, loads of the passengers and crew get sick due to some super dodge airplane food. i’m not going to spoil the film but as you’d expect, the mayhem unfolds from there.

that interesting rule about what the pilot and copilot can eat means that (in theory) it should never happen in real life –  if both the dudes up front don’t both eat the same weird high altitude chicken creation, then they shouldn’t both get sick and then crash the plane 🙂.

doing some more research, I actually found out that there’s no actual choice as to who gets to have chicken and who gets to have beef.

instead, the pilot usually gets the meal from first class and the copilot just gets normal food (or business class if there is one).

i can’t help but think that the copilot is more at risk 🙃 (probably the best way around) you’d imagine that the first class food is much better than the peasant food … that said, i’ve had some interesting lobsters in my time.

byeee 😏 #tdil
