The Daily Mail is ALL TRUE. My partner reads it and he says so.

Which modern pilot actually flies modern airliners like the Airbus series these days? After about FL 60 they seem to select the autopilot and go to sleep! I would be more concerned (as in that Aeroflot crash) if there was a child in the left seat!!
