The recorded clips were played repeatedly across a variety of news outlets on Wednesday.[...]"This lapse in judgment not only violated FAA's own policies, but common sense standards for professional conduct. These kinds of distractions are totally unacceptable," FAA Administrator Randy Babbitt said in a statement. "This kind of behavior does not reflect the true caliber of our work force." It's interesting how the passengers are up in arms, but the interviewed pilot has no issues with it. I for one agree. Focus: I'm sure at some point in our lives we've either been the kid given responsibility we shouldn't have or been the one giving a kid responsibility they shouldn't have. Share your stories. Alt-Focus: The father was listening to everything the kids were saying and would have been right there to correct any errors. Even if he didn't catch them, the pilots have to relay everything back. Was this all that bad? Is there a bit of over-reaction going on here?
