Do Gordon Bethune or CD McLean every fly the line?

No, their not line pilots nor are they pilots for CAL. They are just money hungry sobs. They do travel a lot and ride in the jumpseat if they need to.

shon7,

mvi is wrong.

GB has been known to fly. He is type rated in the B757 and flys flights occasionally for publicity. CD is also a pilot but I don't know if he still flys.

uhhh no they dont bid. :rolleyes: Occasionally they fly for the PR but that about it. (I dont think you'd want GB in the left seat on the flight your family's on.) The first 757 that CO got was brought home by Gordon and I heard that the landing was quite a beautie:eek: ! Can't really blame him though, he normally just hangs out in first class smoozen, in the jumpseat B.S.'en, or in the galley try'n to score :D
