Not what you want to hear from your pilot…

An American Airlines pilot, in making remarks to the cabin before taking off from Los Angeles and heading for New York’s Kennedy Airport, asked passengers to identify themselves if they were Christian and suggested that those who weren’t were crazy.

Passengers complained, and obviously felt a bit scared of a pilot making religious pronouncements. The pilot then apologized to the crew for putting them in the difficult position of having to respond to complaints.

The flight landed safely.
