It looks like Turkish Airlines’ CEO has a possible solution to pilot suicide, in the aftermath of Germanwings first offices Andreas Lubitz downing an A320 in the French Alps. Via CBS News:
Turkish Airlines’ CEO has one possible solution to avoid another case like last month’s Germanwings crash: have pilots get married.
At an event Thursday, Temel Kotil told new Turkish Airlines pilots that the incident showed how critical their roles are.
“Our pilot friends, whether they are men or women, their lifestyles are very important,” he said.
Kotil cited media reports claiming Lubitz may have been set off by a falling-out with his girlfriend. “Therefore, I am guiding those who are single toward marriage from this podium,” he said, with a smile.
