As a “jumpseater” sitting in the back am I in the crew list? Am I on duty? No. Hell im not even listed as occupying the jump seat for weight and balance purposes. Am I to refrain from alcohol in case I’m needed for something? If there’s another company pilot on board, typed on the equipment non-revving with his family and is needed to help in an emergency do you really think he’s going to be turned away because he had a cocktail?
You’ve just finished a 14hr duty period and missed your first couple of flights home and now you’ve been up for 22 hours straight. Are you really fit to be an ACM?
No booze in the back because you’re a crew member equals needing to be fit for duty if you’re occupying the jump seat.
Or use some common sense.
