Some people asked for more of the conversation to be posted. Others wondered how Harrison remained so calm or were just relieved thinking about the situation.

One commenter suggested the industry give Harrison a job. “Give this guy a job! Performs extremely well under pressure,” zinkj2 said.

She says, “Thankfully the air traffic controller is a licensed flight instructor. I’m sure that came in handy with giving the passenger instructions. I would be freaking out if I was the passenger.”
