Instead, what their press release writer, someone likely recently educated (post 2005 ish) in the social sciences (women studies, intersectionality, patriarchy, white oppression et al) at a (small 'l') liberal dominated college, was a Hilary supporter, and wrote was:"...after arriving upon scene to assist the ALPA pilots involved in the incident, a room was provided near the airport in which the pilots could be sequestered away from the public, press, and the company."
Did ALPA provide a therapy dog for use in this safe place? Soft music?The Crew was taken to a safe place and once their personal needs were looked after, the ALPA representation department prepped them for the TSB investigation (standard procedure for any incident of this nature).
Kudos to ALPA for doing the job they get (or will get) paid for. I have no issues with that. Just keep the molly-coddling language away from pilots. Do police/fire fighters/soldiers and other first responders get "safe places" after traumatic incidents, or are all professions now made up of snowflakes? My good friend Rod tells me that that the Constabulary in NF provides an after-action interview the day after an incident, and it would seem all (according to Hollywood depictions) police forces etc provide counsellors to their employees on an as needed basis following traumatic episodes. It's what companies do these days.
Perhaps the checklist of the future will have a "How are you feeling" item.
