I find myself on commuter jets quite often for business. I will be honest, I do not like flying them. I happen to think that it is the “entry level” job for a new pilot.

Last Sunday I flew from LaGuardia to Dayton on a US AIR commuter flight that was running late. After we boarded the plane, the pilot came on and said, “Don’t worry, we may be leaving late but we are going to fly this plane like we stole it and get you to Dayton on time.”

In the immortal words of Seth Meyers, ‘really?’ And I thought the co-pilot looked a bit like Winona Ryder.
