Ever noticed how often captains leave the cockpit to go to the bathroom? On every flight I am on, either one or both pilots take turns to go take a piddle. I can understand the need for a quick wee-wee on, let’s say, a transatlantic flight. But can’t you hold it in for the duration of a quick Mumbai-Delhi hop?

Fling a bottle in his direction, if you see the captain exiting the cockpit to use the loo. He can use it to pee in, while staying put at his seat instead. No one leaves the cockpit on your watch.

Excerpted from the chapter, What the heck, Captain! Aisle Be Damned. Rest assured, your flying experience will never be the same again!
