Video: 2 Chainz Private Jet Pilots Get In Fight Over Bathroom Use?!

14

Rapper 2 Chainz posted a rather interesting video to social media in the past couple of days, which avgeeks may enjoy analyzing. In the roughly three minute video, 2 Chainz can be seen recording the experience he had on a private jet prior to departure.

The video starts off normal, with him boarding the plane. Things get weird once he’s in his seat — the plane doesn’t have a door between the cabin and cockpit, so he can see everything going on with the pilots. And, well, there’s a lot going on there.

You can see the captain repeatedly saying “please, I’m sorry,” while the first officer repeatedly responds “I’m finished.” The captain physically tries to prevent the first officer from getting off the plane, pleading how sorry he is.

At this point the first officer is in the cabin as he tries to open the door, so 2 Chainz talks to him:

“What’s going on, brother?”
“We have a slight little problem.”
“Is the plane okay?”
“Oh yeah, everything’s fine.”
“You’re not going to fly with us anymore?”
“No, no, I’ll be right back.”

With the first officer off the plane, 2 Chainz talks to the captain:

“Is everything okay, sir?”
“Yeah, we’re okay.”
“He doesn’t want to fly with us anymore?”
*shrugs shoulders*
“Is it our fault?”
“Yeah I’ll get back to you.”

How reassuring!

At this point both pilots get off the plane, and they can be seen talking to one another on the apron. Eventually both pilots get back on the plane, with the captain acting normally, and the first officer shaking his head.

The first officer closes the cabin door, and comes up to 2 Chainz:

“I want to apologize because I really had to go to the bathroom and the captain wouldn’t let me go. I said I gotta go. So I had to call the company and make a complaint about that. But otherwise everything is fine, we’re all ready to go. I want you to feel safe.”

This was all about using the bathroom?!?! What on earth? Presumably the private jet didn’t have a bathroom, but what really caused this? Did the captain try to prevent the first officer from using the bathroom because he didn’t want a delay of a couple of minutes, or…?

You can watch the video for yourself here:

By the way, credit to 2 Chainz for his narration and excellent recording skills here. Talk about some good coverage of a juicy avgeek topic!

Bottom line

2 Chainz had quite an eventful private jet flight, as the two pilots got in a fight with one another prior to takeoff. This was allegedly over the first officer wanting to use the bathroom, and the captain trying to prevent it.

I can’t believe the pilots would get in such a heated argument over something so minor, especially in front of passengers. It makes me wonder how they’d work together if there were an actual emergency.

What do you make of this bizarre altercation?

    Eu nem sabia que existe a possibilidade de de um avião não ter banheiro mas, de qq maneira não dá para ficar a viagem inteira com vontade de ir ao banheiro. Imagino que hoje eles devem rir desse episódio.

    If I were a passenger on that flight I would have gotten off. I’d take a bus before I would fly with those guys.

    Why are the passengers in this tiny little jet appropriately wearing masks and the pilots aren’t? Anyone else notice this? I would never use this company again if I were this customer. Totally unprofessional.

    I remember when i had to take a number 2 while flying and we really got into a heated arguement with the captain and i told him that i was going to take a dump in a bag and leave it in the cockpit and see if he would like that....needless to say when we landed that's when i woke up from my dream and lucky for me didn't go # 2 in my sleep....but...

    In my day, I ran into a lot of captains that were martinets--too many in fact. In my "non-professional" assessment, it seems to be some form of a stress reaction. That's why, when I made captain, I tried never to let stress spill over into to my treatment of the crew. It was a mission.

    As a private jet pilot, I can understand the frustration on the part of both pilots. I can not understand that occurring within hearing and visual observation by the passenger(s). Unprofessional on the part of the captain. Better to deal with a brief delay and later in private deal with the first officer.

    1. David

      ...frustration over going to the bathroom? Is there something normal non-private jet pilots are not understanding here...?

  8. Eskimo

    Is "going to the bathroom" some trend like devious licks that I'm missing?

  9. Icarus

    Those crew are not fit to be in the profession.

  10. Vin

    He also had a nice cameo on 2 Broke Girls when they shared a private jet. Wonder if he's an av geek too

    That captain is lucky he didn’t get the snot kicked out of him. They may have a had a short window to depart or other good reason to leave immediately, but the FO didn’t feel he could complete the flight safely.

    No matter the reason. That captain shouldn’t be flying and next time he puts his hands on another person like that. It may not end as well for him.
