Nah. I just gave him a nice “well you’re a real *******, have a nice day look” and didn’t give it a second thought. I’m simply so far beyond giving a flying **** about most of life’s trivial bull****. I was happy my FO wasn’t out side yet to witness the douchebaggery though. He was a younger fella that was wound up a little tight and would get riled up over minor stuff. I guess watching a throw down between a crusty old man and a twenty something could’ve been entertaining.

Prison rules.
BS is BS. Don't care if that's the way it is/was done at the regionals.

I don't know, but it's never happened on any crew I was with. But I guess you have.

So? douchery is douchery.

I guess I'm not smart enough to know what this means.

Don't blame the other crew, it's the transportation providers who don't provide adequate vehicles and then are unable to give a proper estimate that are the problem.
I get your point, but I do blame the other crew. We landed within minutes of each other, on the gates right next to each other nearly simultaneously. But it was a regional jet so they got done sooner. The driver told them he was there for us too and they convinced him to leave anyway.

I think you are, which is similar to the Wisconsin D bag situation......If you walked up to a van and witnessed no active loading but another crew was already seated, they had been waiting for you at least a few minutes. This realization would be an encompassing level of smart.

Given the above level of smart, common curtesy would dictate that you would let them check in first (not self centered).

Most guys get this....

Heck, I can top this. Once had a deadheading COMPANY crew on my transcon flight to the East Coast. The pilots were in the forward rows and their F/As were in the back of the plane.

They not only got off quickly but then took the van leaving BOTH crews behind (mine and theirs)!

Talk about dbaggery.

Yep, for sure. A little dense on that one, but completely agree.

Mega-super-maxi dbaggery. I'd be very inclined to go have a conversation with that crew when I got to the hotel.

I'm glad to say, however, most of the interactions I've had with my own company's crews and other crews have been respectful and pleasant.

But there are always a few...
