An American Airlines pilot cancelled a flight to twice with the excuse he gave being because he wasn’t feeling it.

After more than 3 hours of delays and having to re-board a new aircraft, the pilot told passengers he would not be flying the plane because he “wasn’t really feeling it.” 

“They’ve told us that the plane is good to go, but I’m not really feeling it. I’m not going to leave the ground if I’m not completely certain that we have an air-worthy aircraft, so I’m going to probably err on the side of caution and am refusing the aircraft,” the pilot addressed. 

“I hate to do this to you, but this is one of those tough calls I have to make, and I feel a lot more comfortable making this call than flying six hours over the water and maybe having an issue.” 

Instead of being irked by the decision passengers reportedly applauded, grateful that the pilot opted not to fly the plane since it was not 100% guaranteed that it would make it to its destination safely. 

Thankfully, the passengers were able to board a different aircraft around 2:30 p.m. and made it safely to Hawaii.
