First off I want to say thank you guys for doing what you do, this is a very educational site and I enjoy going through the interesting questions and answers on this site it is very appreciated
My question is, I have often heard that when a plane needs to make an emergency landing, the crew gets some kind of benefit or reward for handling the situation if it goes well. I often hear in documentaries the Captain says “This is wear the money starts coming in” in emergency situations.
So is it true that if an emergency occurs like say a passenger is unconscious and you guys need to make an emergency landing so that the passenger can get professional medical help, when you do that and land the plane and get the passenger to safety will you guys get any special benefit? If so, what is that benefit? I would assume it varies from airline to airline.
Thanks! greetings from Vancouver, CA
