What the hell is going on?

Good morning, follow me.

I don't know what it is,

but everything is ok.

Eighty knots.

Holding short, good evening,


Good morning.

Good morning.


Let's start.

It's 3:
55 am, and it's pouring...

over buenos aires. The storm

Cut it out.

I'm a captain, right?

- Captain.

- Everything ok?

Yeah. Hydraulic leakage in a flap.

Maintenance says it's within tolerance.

Anything else?

The apu starts false fire alarms.

They said not to use

the fire-extinguisher.

Yeah, right...

the company grows

and uniforms shrink.

- Are we giving these out?

- Yes, why?


"Four planes close to collision."

I guess not.

- Gordo?

- Yes.

Request start up,

there are delays.

- Where's the purser?

- No idea.

Aeroparque, one-five-zero

requests start up.

Hey, come here!

- Hey!

- What?

We're number nine for start up.

- The fire-extinguisher is empty.

- We don't have any in stock.

I can't fly without it.

It's been like this for a week.

That's not my problem.

Get me a fire-extinguisher.

Leave it to me.

Captain, what's your estimate

for boarding?

When we finish refueling and

we get the fire-extinguisher.

Captain, there's no coke.

- Can't we board while refueling?

- No.

Gordo, tell catering

to bring the coke.

And the papers are missing.

Sandra, block it off

before somebody trips.

Traffic requests boarding.

I've just spoken to them.

Fire-extinguisher dealt with.

- Are you ok?

- I'm great.

- To board, i mean.

- Of course.

"Dear madam,

i'm writing to you because

something unexpected occurred,

and i would like you to know.

I guess i should introduce myself,

and i should start

by telling you my name.

But i won't since i doubt

you'll remember me.

So i'll introduce myself otherwise.

We went to the same school,

and i took bus number one...

with the famous driver, "cholo".

Nothing could beat the feeling,

of passing by you on

my way to the back.

This was the best part

of my day.

No doubt, looking at you

for a few seconds...

was worth the ride.

I remember an event,

which gave me vague hope...

that your indifference

wasn't such.

I was talking to luigi...

- do you know marcela fabbri?

- No, why?

She told me that

you knew each other.

- She really said that?

- Yes, why?

Well... it's just strange!

Well done! Great!

You guys are fantastic!

Why don't you just sit down,

chat and forget the game!

"We lost because of that goal,

but i felt like a winner

after years of loving you

in silence,

here at last was a sign

that you had noticed me.

Adolescence wasn't easy...

and i went through many things,

including an indelible love.

The love i had for you."

- Hi.

- Hi.

- How are you?

- Fine.

- How did it go?

- Fine.

Request descent.
