    One of my favorite blogs is Flight Level 390, written by a senior airline pilot.

    Today's post, "Frost Rings," discusses a situation where FAA rules bump up against common sense, and the pilot has to make a financially-significant decision.

    he made a good point. d&mned if he does and d%mned if he doesn't, so he decided it's best to CYA.

    If you tell me that my flight is a few minutes late because you're de-icing the wings, I'm totally cool with that.

    This pilot is very diligent, even making sure his caffeine levels do not drop dangerously low! :p

    If you're totally cool, perhaps you need de-icing too!
