The word has been out for some time about the crazy guidance given to the flight crews at Abercrombie & Fitch. Enjoy!

Those aren't Ops Specs (issued by the FAA), they're a company policy manual.

Got the call to interview there several years back. The prerequisite of wearing flip-flops in the Columbus snow storms was a laughable (along with the other 200 bs expectations).

Being based in CMH I see their silver Gulfstream all the time. Last I heard, they employ their own fuel guys that must wear Abercrombie & Fitch clothes (not sure of the validity).

I know someone who interviewed there. He is about 30 lbs overweight, when he walked in, they all looked at him like saying " oh hell no"

He said they want their pilots to look the part too

Have you seen that guys face, maybe he is like this because he can't stand to look at himself.

I thought there was a previous thread on this topic only a few months ago.

I posted this before reading the link. Guess I was right!

This is dated last October, which is when the controversy first surfaced, IIRC. I don't know how/if the lawsuit has progressed. Some of the article's comments are quite good.

I'd rather shoot myself in the foot instead of working for them. I can see this at the interview:

"Congratulations, you are hired."

"Here, sign this contract." You reply "No Problem".

They say, "By the way, there are a 'few' attention to detail tasks that must be completed to ensure that the flight is operationally ready."

...and things continue to get weirder at A & F.
