Default Commute Air denying Colgan pilots?

I was told by the pilots today while commuting into EWR, that they are going to start turning away 9L non-revs due to a recent complaint filed by one of our captains. Say it ain't so?

You heard wrong. There's one particular 9L CA that might have some difficulties. All other Colgan guys are more than welcome.

Yeah, some guys are turning away one particular Captain of ya'lls for ratting out ol Timmy for doing something stupid.

If you start hearing of them randomly denying all your pilots, get ahold of your JS people. We have some idiots who would likely do that.

I agree with DirectTo. Work these problems through your Jumpseat coordinator. Call or email them. Don't listen to the crew room soap opera hour.

I'm glad to hear that the pilot groups want to keep whatever happened in check!

I don't think I've ever commuted on you guys, but ya never know when you might need to!

No sense in punishing the whole group because of one persons' actions.

Best we can tell the crew got picked on a bit, probably because he was the FO (mentioned by name in the letter).

They were listening to music during boarding, taxied "too fast" and used reverse during taxi, still listening to music during their pre-takeoff annoucement, threw the power forward on takeoff, among a few other miscellaenous things.

Now what really happened? Who knows. There was of course zero investigation or effort put into finding the right course, as is typical of anything C5'ish. Several things didn't make sense about the story.

Either way, TM went on this little rant against the Colgan Capt (training Capt from what we hear) and had all these stickers made and what not.

It's all pretty childish in the end. I'd rather have any Colgan guy on my JS than Timmeh.
