American Airlines Flight Attendant Helps Land Plane in Chicago

An American Airlines female flight attendant helped the pilot land a passsenger jet at O'Hare airport after the co-pilot became ill while in-flight.

According to The CHICAGO (IL) TRIBUNE- the flight originated in San Francisco Monday and while enroute to Chicago- the co-pilot fell ill.

The pilot inquired of the 225 people on-board if anyone was a pilot- and a flight attendant spoke up that she had a commercial pilot's license.

The flight attendant was given an in-flight promotion to first officer and helped the captain land the Boeing 767 without incident.

The co-pilot was treated and released from a Chicago hospital.

Was the flight attendant promoted to first officer?
