I don’t have a ghost of a chance to see aRyan ghost flight.
An idle aircraft costs more money than flying. We've ghosted and repo'd flights when I was a flight attendant. Just because we fly empty we still have to fly to the next destination to pick up pax. I used my old Air Force Air Specialty skills to fly direct KRIC to KGSO so we could go to the strip club behind our usual hotel. Normally the pairing started RIC-BWI-GSO overnight. We had no pax between RIC or at BWI. My crew scheduling was cool about flying direct. I got it okayed. Last minute a USAirways ops guy had an interoffice mail to BWI we had to fly out there. Damn, there went our plans. Even worse our plane broke for a bad beta light on landing at BWI. I was flying around in our J41's every now and then to keep up with that rating. Our whole 4 day pairing was screwed up after that. My wife even gave me permission to go to the strip club in GSO.
