American Boeing 787 For $81 Round Trip DFW – ORD

    • I could have worded that a lot better. I added the word familiarization in the post. All the emergency procedures are done in the simulator. The simulators are such high fidelity that you get your type rating in the simulator without being in the actual airplane. Airlines do have a SOE (Standard Operating Experience) requirement that pilots need to fly XX hours with a check airman before they can be a Pilot In Command. Although this could be done flying to/from Beijing, this shorter route allows the pilots to expereince more takeoffs and landings. This also helps flight attendants learn patterns for more efficient service.
