If you work in certain airlines. But at Delta, American and United.... just to name a few, Captainís authority still means a lot and carries significant weight. Now if you are some snowflake trying to start a wizzing match then go elsewhere. If you are a disgruntled First Officer looking at a loooong upgrade somewhere and think you deserve it now... I canít help you or your ego. Part of professionalism is knowing your part and the discipline that goes along with it. While you point out that there are some bad Captains, Iíd also point out that those bad Captains were most likely bad First Officers.
