Air Traffic Controller Pearson - Toronto:
"One time we had two planes converging.
One of the guys on my shift said, `Delta, we want you to make a change of altitude.'
The pilot said, `No, we're comfortable here.' The controller radioed the second pilot. `United, we want a change.'
The pilot said, `No, we're comfortable here.'
The controller said, `United, let me speak to your purser.' The purser came on the radio. `You got enough extra meals on board?'
`What for?' `For the people on that Delta flight, they'll be joining
you in mid-air in a few moments.' We got our change of altitude."
