From what I have heard, AA Captains have a lot of stuff to do prior to take off - more than other pilots. I think the checklists and procedures are different for them, but not sure how. Anyway, to have to deal with all the stuff they have to do, operate the tiller, stay off active runways, etc...no wonder they taxi slow.

I hope the guy gets busted for using the cell phone to call and report the guy.

Flew AA a couple weeks ago. Forgot I had to pay to check bags, so I made a snarky comment to the agent (not AT her, TO her) about keeping Arpey in multi-million dollar paychecks so that he could run the airline into the dirt. she laughed and dug my comment.
