Things Aviation Administration Majors Hear
There are things Aviation Administration majors hear on a daily basis that really grind our (landing) gears.
Whether you’re telling your family, friends, a teacher, or even somebody at your college what your major is, this is the most commonly asked question you’ll hear. I have heard it so many times that I’ve actually considered getting my major’s description and curriculum tattooed on my forehead.

What a useless major

Because even though it’s irrational, there’s the slightest chance a Qantas 747 is diverting to Chicago and I need to be sure of it. Although, it’s probably just a Southwest 737.
So, you’re flying on a plane just to fly on it? Seems like a waste of money…
Well, maybe to you it is. But, I bet you can’t say you’ve been on the entire United Airlines fleet except the 767-400ER and 787-9?
I didn’t think so…
Can you get me free flights?
