As airplane passengers, we all want to believe that our pilots are glued to the controls, taking safety precautions, and doing everything in their power to ensure a smooth, incident-free flight. We’re pretty sure they do that, but we also know that they chat among themselves, joke around, and, apparently even pass the time by checking out dating apps.
