Any one still reading this anymore?
It's not about the quantity of your posts.  It's about the quality.

On the ground, the plane is usually connected to a ground supply of conditioned air (the big yellow tube connected to the bottom or side of the airplane). If this is unavailable (or is not set to a correct temperature) we fire up the APU (Auxillary Power Unit), which is a small turbine engine which can powers the A/C packs and also provide the aircraft with electrical power. If you're sweating on the plane, mention it to the flight attendant so that the bonehead pilots fire up the APU.

Awesome read so far.

Although from W0X0F's answer it doesn't seem too practical to be a Shomer Shabbos airline pilot.
