Boomers. The single most narcissistic, parasitic, self-centered, megalomaniac generation this country has ever seen. The whole world will be a better place when they are all dead.

Is that comment really that much worse than the pretty consistent millennial hating that goes on around here?

I say it was tantamount to Hannibal Lecter wanting to have you for dinner one night this week.

Parents of boomers hated their hippie generation offspring and let everyone know it.
Itís human nature for these boomers to hate whoever was coming behind them.

We also usually say at different hotels from the FAs in the same city so itís common to split and head for our private car and they do their own thing to get to their hotel with the lead FA being in charge if they are staying together.

In the few places we do stay at the hotel together itís usually a Crew base so often they are going home or splitting up. Itís also usually a large city and the van runs on a schedule. In the situation where the FA gave me a hard time for not waiting I had no idea whether she was based there or overnighting. And itís the same hotel in the same pickup location running on the same schedule it has been for years. Why do I need to babysit to the pickup site and then ride together to the sign in sheet. She (they) know where to go and we arenít flying together tomorrow. I donít walk with them to the Crew parking bus after a trip or pick them up at home before. What makes this any different?

And what camaraderie? Ever sat on a hotel van with a bunch of FAs complaining about passengers and the latest screwing by scheduling all in front of the driver and other riders. Itís embarrasing. Iíd rather not. If we make it to the same bus great. If itís on demand of course I wonít leave without and Iíll ask so make sure they are going to the hotel. If itís on a schedule, see ya, I have no idea where they are going. Different FAs literally every leg. She was just looking for drama.

I also know Iím not in the minority because when I was a commuter it was always offline and by the time I got to the front to thank the pilots for the ride they were long gone almost always.


Iím with you. Where Iím at we are split up and the FAs do their own thing. Theyíre big boys and girls they donít need to have us help them.

Just last night we had a light load. Me and other guy were messing around up front and i hear see you guys later and the FAs leave on their way to the hotel. We never even had a convo about the hotel bc they donít care where Iím staying. Should i have gotten mad at them for leaving me? lol

Exception is when Iím working with new hires who have no clue. Then Iíll hold their hand. Otherwise, see ya. Unless thereís some other circumstance that requires us staying together.

Best thing ever was when we stopped being on the same pairings as FAs.

This does seem to bear out anecdotally. As gen X raised by war generation (aka "silent" generation) I've always felt kind of caught in the middle.

He's not wrong, every major social, financial and/or geo-political problem can be placed on the boomers.

I also agree that there is no reason to wait on the f/as especially if they are going to a different hotel. A 737-9 or a 321 can take 20+ mins to deplane.

I always wait for my pax to get off. Iím still the Captain(was) and theyíre onboard my ac. If that effects our show time due to rest, thatís an issue for management. If a pax needs a wheelchair and one isnít there, I wait.
