Now here is a story. Passengers boarding an Aeroflot flight from Moscow to New York noticed that the pilot was drunk when he greeted them. The passengers complained, rightly so, but the response from Aeroflot representatives is classic. An unnamed Aeroflot representative announced that it was "not such a big deal" if the pilot was drunk because the aircraft practically flew itself. I guess this is how Russians are working hard to live up to their old stereotypes.
