Frustrated Airline Passenger Flies Jet to Destination when the Pilot Doesn't Show up

Michael Bradley was trying to get from Manchester to his vacation destination of Alicante, Spain. Alas, the pilot assigned to the flight was a no-show. So Bradley volunteered to fly the easyJet flight himself. This was something the airline would accept because Bradley is also a pilot for easyJet. The New York Post reports:

He said he was legally permitted to fly because he had the previous four days off and brought his license with him.
“I phoned up easyJet and said, ‘Hiya, I’m standing in the terminal doing nothing. I have got my license with me,'” Bradley told the outlet. “Thirty-eight seconds later they phoned me back and said, ‘Please, please, pretty please with a big cherry on top, can you fly the airplane to Alicante?'”
